About: Take Your Pick Flower Farm was born in the summer of 2006. It started small with about 30 flower beds and has grown to be just about an acre of flowers. In 2010 the farm was selected as one of the Top 10 Pick Your Own Flower Farms in the country by Birds & Blooms magazine. Since then the farm has expanded to include a weekly summer Flower CSA (subscription service), DIY, and full-service event and wedding flowers, a farmers' market and classes in flower arranging. In 2017 Linda partnered with Ability in Bloom , a dynamic, horticulture-based social enterprise of Challenge Workforce Solutions . She is helping to provide jobs for a committed group of adults and teenagers with disabilities and other barriers to employment.
