We are more than just tulips!
The Holland Ridge Farms u-pick sunflower festival is a celebration of one of the most popular flowers in the world. Our pick your own event features not only yellow sunflowers but also white, red and bi-color varieties. Every year visitors from across New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and beyond head to the farm to experience the beauty of the sunflower. And with over 50 acres of sunflower fields, our festival is currently the largest on the East Coast. We also plant thousands of other cut flowers including gladiolas, lilies, cosmos, zinnias, dahlias and more!
Millions of beautiful blooms, no matter when you visit
We plant millions of sunflower seeds in weekly stages which means there are always beautiful blooms on display throughout the festival. The Holland Ridge Farms sunflower festival is an annual event that opens in September and runs for around four weeks depending on Mother Nature.
All of our flowers are pick your own for just $1 per stem!
All of the flowers at our u-pick sunflower festival are pick your own which means you can take home as many as you like for just $1 per stem. We provide the buckets and clippers. All you have to do is cut them and take them to the gift shop to be wrapped and purchased. A Holland Ridge Farms bouquet is a truly special gift for yourself or a loved one.
