Petal Pusher Farms
Location: Purcell, Oklahoma
I found Petal Pusher Farms on Facebook and I am so glad I did. If you love fresh flowers, produce & extremely sweet people (owners Jerí & Matt), then you will love Petal Pusher Farms! All the flowers are Oklahoma grown and available for you to pick yourself! Yes, you heard right, you can cut your own flowers straight from the stem! They even teach you how to correctly cut flowers (yes, there is a correct way to do it!). Jerí & her husband Matt, opened Petal Pusher Farms March of this year and have worked extremely hard to bring you some of the best local produce, farm fresh eggs & of course, flowers!
Wait, before I go any further, let me introduce you to the "sweet people", Jerí & Matt (also, how cute are they?)! This husband & wife duo both share a passion for agriculture & the environment. Jerí has a B.S. in Forestry & a M.S. in Land Resources and Matt has a B.S. in Environmental Science. With all of this knowledge, they decided to open up the 0.7 acre farm!
Jerí & Matt wanted to grow hardy annuals that would do well in this Oklahoma heat such as sunflowers, zinnias, and cosmo (just to name a few). What's also amazing about their flowers is they are grown without any artificial chemicals or pesticides. They wanted to keep the flowers as beautiful as mother-nature intended them to be. In fact, Jerí mentioned that they see so many more pollinators such as honey bees, hummingbirds & butterflies do the work for them naturally!
When the two are not busy working their full time jobs, they host events on the weekends. "You-pick" is available to the public on Saturdays. For only $20, you & the family can come out to the farm and enjoy picking your own flowers to make a local Petal Pushers bouquet! Oh, and you get popsicles because the Oklahoma heat around this time is pretty extreme.
From my personal experience, picking fresh flowers is so much more satisfying. You get fresh flowers AND they look so much better than getting store bought ones.
Make sure to RSVP here so they can anticipate your visit! Scroll down to look at my experience & find Petal Pusher Farm's location.
