Essex Bay Flower Farm

Home to a small family-run flower farm, this 7-acre property boasts some of the prettiest gardens in the area. From peonies to dahlias, seasonal flowers surround a large, open field. Behind the field is an antique yellow barn adorned with a peace sign, an homage to the owner’s California roots and spirit. The fields of flowers and the historic barn — one of the oldest in the country — combine to make a truly unique setting for an outdoor wedding. In the height of growing season, the fields of flowers are a beautiful backdrop for photos.

This working farm provides fresh cut flowers and bouquets to flower-lovers all over Cape Ann. Couples are welcome to use the barn’s rustic entry (only) for photos, a sitting or staging area, or however they see fit. There is also a small studio with powder room that may be used as a changing room. Couples have the option of using flowers grown right on the farm as part of the decor for the their celebration.

Located in the charming Cape Ann town of Essex, this farm sits on a quiet, tree-lined road just 4 miles from Crane Beach, one of the most scenic beaches in New England. This property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the George Giddings House and Barn, and, according to local legend, George Washington and his troops camped here during the Revolutionary War.
