Sunflower Update

2024 Sunflower Update

 

The sunflower field is being planted for 2024 and is growing. We plan to open the field for visitors tentatively August 1-September 2. These dates are tentative and will depend on when the crop starts to bloom. We usually can confirm opening day a week ahead of time. We plan to remain open daily after opening day throughout August, but keep in mind that the wet spring weather adjusted some planting dates, so there is a potential for some days during the month that may be less bloom when between crops. Each crop blooms about 10 days, and we have 5 plantings seeded at different times. Any updates will be posted here when details are finalized regarding admission and hours.  We are expecting to run the sunflower field like the past several years. We hope to see you in August!

2023 Season Recap:

We planted 5 crops in 2023, and were open July 30th-September 4th. We had food trucks all but the last extended weekend (we added the last weekend dates because of later bloom than expected). We had music under the large tent on select weekend dates. We had over 20 props throughout the field that we moved as the bloom changed. Thank you to all who visited!

History:

We have grown sunflowers for over 25 years along with many other field crops. The sunflowers are black oil type used for bird seed. We also grow cut flower types in smaller quantities. In recent years, we have had more calls to visit the field for photos and to enjoy. With the increased interest, we created a parking area in the field in 2019 with a self-serve donation box to help with signage and maintenance of the space. Due to increased demand, we began staffing the field in 2020 and offering more amenities for the safety and comfort of visitors. We began an admission charge so we can continue opening the field and add features each year and increase our sunflower acreage! We use our irrigated land to allow a healthy, uniform crop to enjoy.
