U-PICK FLOWERS AT FERME MARINEAU. A SEA OF COLOUR.
The U-pick flowers activity is a fantastic opportunity to walk around, take some beautiful photos and leave with a bouquet that’s exactly what you want. Millions of flowers and grasses cover our majestic fields in shimmering colours. We provide you with a pot and pruning shears and you’re all set to pick. Diving into a sea of flowers is certainly a great way to recharge your batteries!
This year, we also created the dried flowers floral interpretation centre on, where we show you the best techniques to extend the life of your bouquets.
If you want to add to your enjoyment, take advantage of all the activities available as part of our Festival, including our huge sunflower-and-corn maze with a detective game near the U-pick fields. Experience an unforgettable mystery adventure and step into an enchanted world!
Your admission also includes access to Café Marineau (Reserved for people taking part in fields activities – Please visit our social medias for opening hours), performances by singers (please visit our social media for schedules), and to our entire site, including the farmer’s market, the artisanal ice cream stand and the playground with a goat-petting zoo.

- Where are the U-pick flowers fields located and how do I get there?
The U-pick flowers fields are located about 500 metres from the entrance. It’s a pleasant walk along a gravel and dirt path. If you have children, strollers or carts with large wheels are preferable. We also recommend that you wear good shoes or rain boots if you visit on or after a rainy day. If you don’t have a cart, we do have a few available to borrow; however, quantities are limited.
- Can I bring my dog?
Dogs are unfortunately not allowed on the site.
- Do the activities take place when it’s raining?
Discover our floral interpretation centre on dried flowers
In the 1990s, Ferme Marineau was one of the largest producers of dried flowers in Canada. We’re delighted to have created a floral interpretation centre where you can discover easy-to-use drying techniques to extend the life of the bouquet you’ve lovingly arranged in our fields.
