The Dreamy Flower Farm In Nebraska You’ll Want To Visit This Spring
Nothing heralds the rebirth of spring quite like blooming flowers. The colorful little works of art remind us that even when things look dreary, there’s always a bright spot ahead. There’s a peaceful little flower farm near Norfolk that is the perfect embodiment of this philosophy, and you’ll want to visit this flower season.
Welcome to Simpler Thymes Flower Farm!
This lovely U-Pick flower farm has rows and rows of colorful blooms that you can wander as you choose your very favorites to take home.
The family-owned business is located on an early 20th century farmstead. It's a peaceful place in a scenic setting, and you may just find that you've got a new spring in your step as you wander the grounds.
If there is anything as impressive here as the flowers, it would be this gorgeous century-old farmhouse that is the centerpiece of the farmstead. It's been in the same family for four generations, and you can tell how cherished the historic building is.
The flower fam is only open during blooming season, but the family is hard at work long before the flowers show themselves.
Lots of love and attention go into these pretty plants, from the bulbs to the sprouts to the long-stemmed beauties.
The result is a spectacular vista of colors and shapes that is sure to brighten your day.
As you approach the farm, you might see this sweet little flower cart out front. It's stocked with a few select bouquets and/or baskets so you can still take home a little sunshine even if you don't have time to go pick them yourself.
There are often lovely arrangements available to purchase. They make for a unique hostess gift - or any kind of gift, really!
Hanging baskets are a popular selection here. Each one has been carefully planted, and when you buy one you'll get detailed instructions on caring for your new flowers.
Herbs, local honey, and other farm goodies are available here, too - you never know exactly what you'll find on each visit!
The farm is open select hours during the blooming season, but you don't always have to wait for a time when the owners are around. The U-pick side of the business operates on the honor system when the farm isn't manned. How Nebraska is that?!
Visiting this delightful flower farm is a great escape from the hurried world outside. You may find yourself slowing down and relaxing a bit as you take in the sights, smells, and sounds of this peaceful place.
