andrews scenic acres

You can pick your own flowers at this farm near Toronto

They say April showers bring May flowers, and if that's true, we'll be in for some stunning flower fields soon at this gorgeous farm near Toronto.

Andrew's Scenic Acres, located just 45 minutes from Toronto in Milton, is pretty much a one-stop-shop for all things "pick-your-own." In just a couple weeks, this sprawling farm will be in full bloom with a variety of fruits and veggies to pick yourself, like rhubarb, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, and so much more.

A cute wagon ride will transport you back to these fruit and vegetable gardens where you can select your own goodies, and channel your inner Ina Garten.

But, by far the most popular aspect of this farm are the thousands of flowers that will be in full bloom from June to October. Flowers like lilies, sunflowers, dahlias and gladioli are just a few of the stunning florals you'll be able to take home.

Because of the sheer beauty of these flower fields, Andrew's Scenic Acres has become a hot spot for the 'gram, but please respect these fields and the entire farm. 

Once you've finished picking your own gorgeous bouquet of fresh flowers, be sure to stop in at the winery, where the varieties of wine are completely made from fruits grown on the farm. If wine isn't your forte, the farm also make delicious hard apple ciders. 

Be sure to check the seasonal calendar before you visit to see what's available for pickin'. The flowers will be ready for 'pick-your-own' visits starting  this month, and the prices of stems will be listed on their website
