 Sunflowers typically bloom up to 2 weeks, and then the petals drop and seeds develop. The sunflowers started blooming around August 19th, 2019. Both fields are done blooming as of September 9th (One field started blooming later, but the main field was done a few days after Labor Day in 2019). Field visits are allowed during blooming. After that, the fields are not available for visitors.

 

Blooming has past, but the posted field guidelines were posted in 2019 as follows:

Park in a non-obstructive, safe location to view sunflowers, or where directed (parking is available in the highway 65 field behind the sign).

Enter field at your own risk.

Enter ONLY while sunflowers are in bloom.

Be prepared for uneven terrain, sandburs, bees, & potential wildlife. 

You are welcome to view the sunflowers and take photos during daylight hours. If you will need restrooms, you may visit the store, but note store hours are only 9am-6pm and restrooms are not available in the field. 

A $5 per person donation is suggested admission to continue allowing people to enter the fields. There are pay boxes at the field entrances.

We suggest a $1 per sunflower donation in the pay box (next to field guidelines signs at entrance) if you cut a sunflower. Please only cut sunflowers from the back of the field so others can take photos in front! We don't recommend this sunflower variety for cut use since they have pollen, but may be used in photo props or in vases temporarily. These would not be suitable cut flowers for weddings or events. They are black oil type grown for bird seed production. You can buy Green Barn grown sunflower seed for birds in the store throughout the year.

Please respect the fields. You may walk through carefully

Please do not damage the plants or litter in the fields.

You may bring pets for a photo, but there may be sandburs, so be careful! Also watch for neighbor dogs near the field behind Green Barn.

There are 2 Green Barn sunflower fields:

1. West side of Highway 65 across from Green Barn

2. West side of Hastings Street one block east of Highway 65 behind Green Barn.

Check the website for updates-sunflowers typically bloom about 2 weeks.

The sunflower field generally blooms for 2 weeks starting sometime between the end of July-late August, depending on the planting date that year. We have been growing about 5 acres of sunflowers split between 2 fields. We grow sunflowers meant for bird seed and are selling bags in the store to feed your feathered friends.
