The 2016 Daffodil Season Has Ended

We have met some wonderful people this year who not only enjoy daffodils as much as we do, but who have added much to make our days happy. It has been a joy to visit with you in our beautiful fields. 
Be sure to check back from time-to-time as we add more photos from this season!

Chuck's number to call or text is 843-368-1998 if you have questions.

We are having difficulty with our computer program. We have many beautiful photos of visitors to our fields we are unable to load. We will post them as soon as the computer gurus figure out what is wrong with this program. We apologize for the delay.

                                                            2016 Daffodil Season                      

Welcome to U Pick Daffodils, a family owned and operated farm offering daffodils to the local area. Hours of operation vary depending upon the weather and how many folks visit the fields each day. Every attempt is made to keep this webpage updated so you know what's available.  Generally speaking, it's better to arrive earlier in the day for the best selection. Depending upon the weather and bloom availability, the fields are open weekends from 10AM until 4PM. The fields are also open various weekdays, again depending upon weather and availability of daffodils. Call Chuck at 843-368-1998 if you want to check before you come. We don't want you to be disappointed if the fields are sold out by the time you get here.

Chuck Merrick, a Bluffton local, was raised here on what was then the family dairy farm. The daffodils are planted in what was once known as the Dynamite Field. A couple of generations ago the field was so heavily covered with trees that, as was common practice in that day and time, it was dynamited out to clear the area for planting and cattle grazing. The fields are also a wildlife sanctuary now.Planting and caring for U Pick Daffodils is, according to Chuck, a lot more fun than milking cows every morning at 4:30AM!

Chuck works hard to make U Pick Daffodils a friendly and inviting place for the entire family. In addition to clearing, tilling, and mowing the fields, Chuck generally plants some new bulbs each year. Most of the new bulbs are tried and true varieties but he does experiment with a few new hybrids or varieties to see how well they will do in the area. Researching daffodils along with trying to make different varieties grow here has become somewhat of an obsession for Chuck. Even with all the hard work and research, farming daffodils, like any other type of farming, is at the mercy of unpredictable weather conditions.

During the daffodil blooming season, you'll usually find Chuck, Diane, son Charles, daughter-in-law Frasier and grandson Chase working the fields. This year six-year-old grandson Oliver will be helping out in the fields as well. Daughter Christie, her husband Greg, and son Andrew Ryan may even journey down from Black Mountain, NC to help out a weekend or two. UPickDaffodils is truly a family effort!

The Merricks hope you will visit U Pick Daffodils. Remember, as you will be visiting a working farm, dress comfortably, look out for ants, and plan to have a great time! Due to sanitation issues, no dogs please.

* Price List: 25 cents per stem.*



Emma and Caleb had a great time last year. We can't wait to see how much they've grown!
