PICK YOUR OWN

Thank you to everyone who came out to our 2018 fields, all of your donations have gone to help our educational programs!

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 2018. We are hoping for the first phase to be ready by the beginning of Septemeber. When seeds are mature, they can be picked for bird food.
