Harvest Flowers During Your Stay!
From the months of July-September, guests that stay at The Barnswallow Cottage Farm Stay enjoy a flower harvest experience to remember, for FREE! The cottage is also the farm stay location for our exclusive staycation events located in our online farm store.
The Barnswallow Cottage is a short walk down the back lane from the flower field. Guests will be provided with a bucket and snippers at the cottage to harvest and arrange their own blooms for a special flower experience. Our compostable vases will be stationed at the cottage so guests can easily travel with their floral creations. The cottage capacity is 10 people and has a two-night minimum. Farmer Meredith can't wait to share the experience with those that visit from afar. You can book through the link below.
The Barnswallow Cottage is a private, rural retreat surrounded by quiet country with a dash of wildlife and unforgettable sunsets. It's conveniently located on the south side of where we grow our flowers and produce. The 1949, A-frame farmhouse was updated in 2020, with a new bathroom, plumbing and amenities. It’s tastefully dressed with family heirloom pieces and adorned with movie set furniture acquired by Meredith Nunnikhoven. All renovation efforts, materials and labor were sourced locally in the state of Iowa. The cottage is an agri-tourism entity that supports many financial needs of the farm, like building maintenance, operational costs and fair labor wages.
