PICK YOUR OWN

The pick your own season has ended! The sunflowers are gone…until next year! See you in 2018

Enjoy these images from our 2017 season!

Update: 8/21. Getting very close!

Sunflower Update: These pictures were taken on 8/14.  Sunflowers are looking good but not quite there.  About two more weeks.

Bring the family, a picnic, and leave with a day of memories. Before or after picking and picnicking – explore more of what the Farm has to offer – trails, demonstration gardens, animals, history, and more.

Sunflowers will be ready in the late summer of 2017 . When seeds are mature, they can be picked for bird food.

$1.00 per stem or $10 per dozen.
