If you are looking for a fun stop near Des Moines you have to check out Howell’s Dried Florals and Greenhouse, Tree Farm and Pumpkin Patch. Located at 3145 Howell Court, Cummings, Iowa 50061 they are just a short drive out of town.
Their website describes the farm:
Our family owned farm is located in Cumming, Iowa, just a short drive south of Des Moines, and we are open daily, all year round, for your convenience. Families return again and again to visit the upstairs of this 1910 barn to see the flowers drying and enjoy our scenic surroundings.
You may conclude that the rainbow begins right here at Howell’s Dried Floral and Greenhouse, where you’ll see more than 5 acres of flowering garden tours, and our giant barn filled with beautiful, naturally air-dried florals and arrangements. We grow more than 53 different flowers, pods and grains; complemented by our beautiful greenhouse selection of live plants for your hanging baskets, yard plantings, containers, and growing decoration needs.
