In Full Bloom

In Full Bloom: Custom floral design and pick-your-own bouquets at a family farm in Barnardsville
Share this

What began with a simple country childhood, spent in the creeks and garden beds of Loretta Ball’s family home in North Carolina, has evolved into a pick-your-own (PYO) flower farm, a full-scale floral design studio, and a stunning small wedding and elopement venue for those looking to tie the knot against the lush backdrop of the farm’s blooming mountain landscape in Barnardsville. On her family farm in the town’s Big Ivy community, Ball and her husband, Kurt, and their two sons, Quinn and Ledger, live amongst rows and rows of sustainably-cultivated blooms that she grows and crafts into bouquets and ornamentals for weddings, known as The Never Ending Flower Farm. 

Inspired and adventurous DIY brides, grooms, and wedding parties can stop by to cut their own flowers for their big day as well—pruners, buckets, and vases are available on site to get the job done. 

Celebrants can work with Ball to use the farm’s flowers in professionally-designed bouquets that are, “crafted with lots of texture, color, and local blooms,” she explains.
