According to Makkink’s, “Each experience begins with an introduction to our flowers and a how-to lesson on cutting and handling them. You will then be provided with a bucket and clippers and be free to roam our field to discover a variety of blooms.”

The types of flowers that are available depend on the time of season but you can expect bright yellow sunflowers, beautifully coloured dahlias, or even some fragrant dill!

Once you’ve filled your bucket with your blooms of choice you can either purchase a vase to put your bouquet in or have a staff member we’ll arrange what you’ve cut into a beautiful hand-tied arrangement.

You’ll need to book a ticket to make your own bouquet with prices starting at $49 for a Cut-Your-Own Ticket which includes one bouquet of 25 stems of your choice of flowers. (a variety of focal, accent, and filler flowers).

There’s a $10 admission fee for each additional person you bring.

If you want to stay for lunch, make a picnic out of it! Makkink’s has several options to do so:

  • $150 Friendship package. (Includes 2 tickets, and a delicious lunch for 2 with a sandwich of choice, a soup or salad of choice, and a drink of choice)
  • $50 Picnic basket for 2 (basket will be filled  with 2 Croissants, 2 butter, 2 homemade jams, 2 drinks of your choice, cheese tray, Cucumber, Cherry Tomatoes, Blueberries, Strawberries and 2 cookies of your choice.)
  • $75 Picnic basket for 3 (basket will be filled  with 3 Croissants, 3 butter, 3 homemade jam, 3 drinks of your choice, cheese tray, Cucumber, Cherry Tomatoes, Blueberries, Strawberries and 3 cookies of your choice.)
