Welcome to the Dirty Bee Flower Farm
Fresh flowers, locally grown
Welcome to The Dirty Bee Flower farm!
We are Arlene & Derrick Schuppener and together we own and operate the Dirty Bee Flower Farm where we grow over 75 varieties of annual and perennial flowers for cutting.
People are always using phrases like “Change is good” and “There is no time like the present”. We nod and agree and go about our daily lives, working our jobs, keeping our schedules, and sometimes, believing that what we are passionate about is just a hobby or a dream. We did just that. Until we didn’t.
When a global pandemic turned the routine of day to day life upside down we decided to make a change. We set out to turn our passions for farming, floral design, and hospitality into our full-time focus. Welcome to The Dirty Bee Flower Farm. We have strived to develop a flower farm that consistently grows lasting, healthy, and beautiful flowers through efficient, high-intensity, and sustainable farming practices and to continually focus on the beauty and joy that our harvest delivers.
We are grateful to share this farm experience with our community and with visitors who make the Okanagan their vacation destination. For those visiting West Kelowna, we are one of many local farms that you can visit on a self guided tour of the West Kelowna Farm Loop. See below for our farm visiting schedule. Agri Tourism brings visitors an immersive farm experience. Book a stay with us and see a working farm and visit the many great places the Okanagan has to offer! You can stay right on our farm during our growing season. Park your RV, pitch your tent, or stay in our tiny cabin in the trees! If you want the hands-on experience, join us for an early morning harvest! Call us to book your experience (250)575-1573.
