About Dogwood Farms

Dogwood Farms is a sweet family-owned and operated business. Owner Chris purchased the property back in 2003, and for the last 20 years, he has painstakingly poured blood, sweat, tears, and so much love into the acres of land that make up the farm. Assisted by his son Cole, Chris began planting flowers a few years ago. Eventually, he realized that they were just too beautiful to keep to himself. So, he started opening up the farm to the community and inviting visitors to come take in the views, too. There isn’t anything fancy or formal about Dogwood Farms. But it is a wonderful place to gather and an incredible spot for unforgettable photos!

Flower Variety

Dogwood Farms is known for its vast fields of flowers, and rolling hills blanketed in bright, colorful blossoms that rotate throughout the seasons. The flowers we’ll use in your unique photoshoot depend on the time of year you book. So, if you have your heart set on a certain variety, be sure to mention it so we can schedule accordingly! 

The first crop to bloom is poppies, which are usually a bold and vibrant scarlet that is like the ultimate red carpet. At sunset, the golden light bounces off of the poppies, and they glow like rubies in a bed of green. Depending on the year, Dogwood Farms mixes up the poppy colors, too! They add in some bright pinks and pops of white. Sometimes, the poppy fields blend with tall, violet larkspur in a variety of hues, from pale lavender to royal purple.

Summer and Fall

As spring fades into summer, the most popular Dogwood Farms attraction begins to bloom: the sunflowers. These bright, happy blooms typically arrive in July and then again a little later in the fall. There is something about a big, yellow sunflower that just shouts “Summer!!” and standing in a field of them is effortlessly romantic. In the fall, in addition to the classic yellow sunflowers, Dogwood Farms also grows some in beautiful autumn colors with rich maroons and orange petals. 

In the fall, Dogwood Farms also has fields of zinnias and cosmos, bright flowers in rich gem-tone colors, and lots of tiny delicate petals. They have lots of personality and are great for colorful photoshoots at the peak of the season. 

Of course, in addition to being an incredible place for maternity and family photoshoots, Dogwood Farms also sells their flowers. Prices depend on the kind of flower you’re picking, but they’re an affordable way to bring a little of the farm’s beauty into your home and support a local farming family while doing so!

While the farm’s focus is flowers, they also grow and sell a small number of other crops, including pumpkins! Typically, in October, you’ll find their big, beautiful pumpkins available for sale, along with the sunflowers, cosmos, and zinnias. Bring the family and enjoy an entertaining wagon ride around the farms! There are often food vendors, too, so you can grab a bite to eat just in time to sit back and watch the sunset over the fields. It’s the perfect way to spend an autumn afternoon or evening.
