Sunflower Update

We are busy planning for Sunflower Days 2021! We expect to open the sunflower field approximately July 31st-August 31st. Check back closer to the date for exact opening date as bloom time can vary with weather. We will post regular status updates regarding field conditions on our homepage during sunflower bloom. Like 2020, there will be an admission fee to enter the field. We have staged multiple plantings for nice blooming throughout the month. We will post a food truck schedule regularly closer to opening date. The field is irrigated and the plants are growing well so far, despite the dry conditions! The field will have a tent for shade near the food truck area in 2021, more picnic benches and seating, portable restrooms, and staff will be available during open hours. We will be harvesting cut flowers for purchase from a separate field. Supply and color may vary by day. We do not allow sunflowers to be cut from the main field so all can enjoy and the seed can be harvested at the end of the season. Questions and food truck inquiries can be directed to sunflowers@greenbarngardencenter.com

 

The sunflower field is now closed for the season as of September 1st, 2020. Field entry is no longer allowed and the sunflowers are no longer in bloom.

Sunflower Days was open August 2nd-31st 2020 with 2 fields of blooms timed a couple weeks apart. We harvested the seed this fall. Thank you for visiting! We plan to host Sunflower Days again in 2021 during the month of August. Always check for updates on our website and social media. Location, bloom time, and guidelines may vary from year to year since sunflowers are an annual crop and re-planted each spring.

Green Barn Sunflower Days 2020

A sunflower spectacular!

(Closed for the season Sept. 1, 2020) Green Barn has been raising sunflowers for over 20 years. The sunflowers are harvested after ripe for bird seed. In recent years, many more people have requested access to the field for photos or to simply enjoy. Due to increasing demand, in 2020 we offered more field conveniences along with an admission fee to best serve visitors. We added more acreage of sunflowers to enjoy (over 20 acres). We had portable restrooms, food trucks on select days, garbage service to keep the field clean, increased field parking for safe parking off of the road, and tractors and other photo props/viewing stations. We staffed the field 7am-8pm selling tickets, beverages, and providing assistance when needed at the field entrance. We hope to offer Sunflower Days again in 2021 with even more improvements for a fun experience. Thank you to all who visited. We loved seeing your photos and many happy faces.
