U-Pick Flowers at County Rail Farm

Welcome to our new U-Pick Flower Field!

*UPick is Currently OPEN! Saturdays and Tuesdays, see below*

We built this farm to share it with you and we are so excited to open our U-Pick field this season! Come pick your very own organically grown flowers at the farm, right from our fields.

We’re located just 20 min from Missoula proper (find directions here), an easy and quick trip. Bring a friend, your mom, your dad, your kiddos, your favorite aunts, and pick handfuls or buckets to take home! Many details below, please read before you come out.

Keep an eye on social media (@fieldfiveflowers / @countyrailfarm) for updates! We try to keep the website up to date, but instagram is the best way to keep tabs on us.

What to Bring

  • A bucket, jar, or other vessel to transfer your blooms into. That will keep them fresh and hydrated for the journey home.
    **no glass please**
  • A water bottle for YOU to stay hydrated. We do have some bottled water for purchase on site
  • Sunscreen & hat. There is very little shade on the farm, and summers here get toasty!
  • Garden gloves are suggested as some stems can be prickly or cause a slight rash when harvested.
  • Snips/clippers. We will have a handful of clippers at the farm, but if you can bring your own that would be great! We will sanitize your clippers with bleach before you head out to harvest.

What we Provide

  • Buckets for picking – $10 purchase fee if you forget yours to take your blooms home.
    ($10 return credit if you bring them back!)
  • Clippers – you’re welcome to bring your own, but we do have some clean and ready for your convenience!
  • Water – We have plenty of potable agua! We encourage you to bring your own water bottle but we do have bottled water for sale as well.
  • A farm stand stocked with veggies, eggs, more flowers, and honey, all for sale on U-Pick days!

What NOT to Bring

  • Please leave your furry friends at home.
  • No glass containers in the field
  • No smoking permitted on the farm

Location & Parking: County Rail Farm!

  • 24275 Mullan Rd, Huson MT
  • Click here for directions, or see the map below
  • Upon arrival, please enter slowly through our gate (at the farm stand) and park along the driveway. The U-Pick fields are located to the left as you enter the farm.
  • Please check in with us before harvesting. We’ll have a table with supplies, harvesting tips, and specialty blooms for sale by the stem in front of our u-pick fields.
    • If you have a U-Pick punch card, we’ll have it on file here!
  • Please drive and park with caution, as there will be people visiting the farm stand and children around the farm.

Safety and other notes

  • Bees and pollinators are in full force at the farm during the season (and we like it that way!). Generally, they don’t cause any problems, but be aware when cutting flowers to not accidentally grab a bumble bee.
  • Uneven ground! Please wear appropriate shoes… and clothing too, for that matter.
  • Some plants and flowers can be toxic to children and animals if consumed. Please be observant of small children.
  • We do not have a public bathroom at this time on the farm. Please plan accordingly!
    *There is a bar just down the road if you are in need*

Flower After Care: a couple suggestions to keep your blooms happy and long lasting

  • Harvest when it’s cool – early in the day or later in the evening
  • Harvest stems by cutting at a diagonal and place them immediately into your water bucket
  • Keep flowers in a shaded area during and after harvest
  • Use clean vases/vessels/clippers
  • Cut your flowers often. Every few days be sure to trim an inch or so from your flowers’ stem. Change their water each time.
