Experience the Most Spectacular Flower Fields in America

Mark your calendar for October 24, 2020, to join Texas Specialty Cut Flowers farmers Frank and Pamela Arnosky for an American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour, presented by the California Cut Flower Commission, among fields of blooming and fragrant marigolds.

Located just outside San Antonio, in late October, these flower fields come alive as Texans celebrate Dia De Los Muertos – Day of the Dead – featuring the ceremony’s traditional marigolds. It’s a reverent yet joyful experience that leaves your soul singing with bright memories.


Your Experience


Your dinner experience will include a feast for the eyes, thanks to the innovative tablescapes featuring all local flowers designed by a renowned American floral designer.

You'll also enjoy a multi-course artisan meal surrounded by waves of stunning flowers alongside flower aficionados like yourself, while learning about the value of buying and supporting Certified American Grown Flowers.

The Flowers


Texas Specialty Cut Flowers is a haven for the Lone Star State’s seasonal flowers, starting with blue cornflower and Texas wildflowers in the spring, black-eyed Susans in the summer and lilies and poppies to bring a burst of color to winter.

But it’s the fall spectacular marigolds that have earned this farm an important role in the region’s history. As residents honor friends and family who have passed on, marigolds decorate ofrendas (alters), and the petals strewn along pathways guide the spirits of loved ones back to their families.


The Flower Farm


Texas Specialty Cut Flowers in Blanco, Texas, the heart of Texas Hill Country, is the result of Frank and Pamela Arnosky’s moxie driving their dream. They purchased 12 acres of land in 1990, literally carved out their own road, pitched a tent and began clearing the cedar trees to make room for their lovingly tended rows of flora. Today, the farm extends across 20 acres and 22 greenhouses.

The Big Blue Barn is the heart and soul of the farm, where the family holds a market featuring fresh cut flowers and vegetables every day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. With the help of local experts, the Aronskys raised the barn, including its amazing arched tresses, in only five days. This landmark now stands in the region as a symbol of the power when a community comes together.
