US (NE): Lancaster County farm encourages customers to pick their own flowers

Flowers bloomed, and bees buzzed at one local pumpkin and flower farm as they created a different way for customers to pick fresh flower bouquets.

10/11 NOW spoke with SR Pumpkin and Flower Farm owner and farmer, Sara Rippe, learning about their Pick Your Own Bouquets and other seasonal activities as Nebraska heads into the final months of summer.

Just over two acres of summer flowers are planted every year by hand just north of Lincoln. SR Pumpkin and Flower Farm offers Pick Your Own Bouquets in the spring and summer, where customers can pick a variety of the farms hundreds of flowers.

”Basically, you come out to the farm we’ll get you, provide everything you need,” Rippe said. “We have clippers, we have a cup for you to pick all of your flowers into that you take home with you. It rests easily in the cup holder in the car and won't spill on ya. You can just go to the field, pick as many flowers as you want, and pick yourself a beautiful bouquet.”
