Raise your hand if you love ridiculously-fresh flowers all over your house! If your hand is raised, check this out.  

This incredibly cute pick-your-own flower farm in Springville is making dreams come true. The Flower Stand, as it’s so adorably named, will give you all the fresh air/nature vibes and is the *perfect* little day trip to take with just about anyone!


The magical flower field is located just 2 miles north of the Village of Springville on Route 240 (Vaughn St.) – that’s exactly 40 minutes from Buffalo City Hall, 23 minutes from The Grange in Hamburg, and 48 minutes from the Boulevard Mall – and as you can see from the phots, is lined with rows upon rows of every type of flower you can imagine (or at least I can imagine), ranging in color, shape, and size.

Basically, it’s heaven on earth.

What started as 200 feet of flowers years ago has become two acres of public u-pick flowers. Their 2021 garden will be over 3 acres and they have 150+ varieties of flowers as well as a lavender field.

Here’s how The Flower Stand describes themselves on their website:

The Flower Stand is a unique country getaway 30 minutes south of Buffalo, NY, where you’ll find gorgeous and affordable flowers in the prettiest setting you could imagine. Our U-Pick Farm is open from July through October. The Flower Stand U-Pick Flower Farm is not just about picking flowers; it’s a whole experience. Stroll the groomed aisles, take in the beauty of nature and observe the pollinating bees and fluttering butterflies.

Come with your family, your friends, your love… select the perfect blooms and leave with the most beautifully unique American Grown Flowers while in turn supporting Western New York Agriculture.”

How It Works

When you get to The Flower Stand for your u-pick experience (still by appointment only) , you’ll start off by grabbing a pair of sheers provided for you at the front of the stand. Then you’re greeted by a wonderland of rows and rows of flowers and instantly struck with the beauty, colors, and scents of Spring and Summer. After that, go wild. Get creative and make your fresh flower dreams come true. You can cut as many or as few as you want.

The owner of this magical little spot, Ellen, can also be of great assistance and can help you arrange your bouquet in any way your heart desires, or you can arrange it yourself! She provides all materials to do so at the front of the stand.
