Home Again Flowers -- Hartville, OH


Home Again Flowers opened their farm stand in April 2018 and the farm stand is currently open Monday through Friday until the end of September. The premise is simple, you can stop by the farm stand and pick-up an already created bouquet. During the week the farm stand is self-serve and located on Andrews St. NW.

In July 2018, Home Again Flowers opened the you-pick-flower patch. On Friday mornings from 9 am - noon; Friday nights from 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm; and Saturday morning from 9 am - noon you can attend a you-pick event through the end of September. The flower field is about half an acre in size and parking is accessible on the north side of the Hartville Flea Market. Home Again Flowers has everything you need for your visit -- flower snips, containers of water to hold while you meander around the field, even vases for purchase if you forget to bring your own.

In addition to what is available at the farm stand/you-pick patch, the owner of Home Again Flowers is deeply involved in social justice and donates bouquets to both World Relief and Rahab Ministries. These donated bouquets are waiting for women in a safe house after they've escaped trafficking or prostitution and for refugees who are finding a new home in Akron.

This is all to say that Home Again Flowers is truly a small, family-owned business that I can get behind.

One thing to note is that Home Again Flowers is cash only, and the pricing is straightforward and laid out for you when you arrive at the field. Owner Jillian and her family have created such a unique concept and all of the flowers are gorgeous. You can't go wrong with your choices and as the season progresses there will be different flowers available from what you see here.



There were so many options! There were also flowers that neither of us had ever seen before, with such a wonderful product I don't think you can go wrong with your arrangements. Armed with our snips we set out to explore the fields. 


  


The trick is to make sure that you're taking enough of the stem to minimize mistakes -- we love supporting small businesses, but we don't want to create problems for them. Being careful in the field will help minimize waste.

You'll notice my very attractive footwear, you'll want to wear sturdy shoes.













Once you've selected all of your blooms you can sit down at the picnic table and put together your arrangement.

Since the flowers are fresh from the field you might have some friends that are living in your bouquet. Dave found this caterpillar a new plant.

We loved Home Again Flowers so much I texted my friends from the field to invite them to come out with me. It would be lovely to make a morning of going through the flea market and then picking flowers to take home. I'm looking forward to my next visit and the colorful flowers on my kitchen table remind me of all the fun we had this weekend.
