In 2019 we returned for our second Sunflower Festival. Alongside the millions of sunflowers we also added twenty five different varieties of cut flowers and rows and rows of colorful mums. Once again our pick your own flowers was a big success with many visitors taking home incredible hand-picked bouquets. As always the fields were a very popular selfie spot and welcomed many professional photographers and their clients. Many of our guests celebrated special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries and we even had a number of wedding proposals (they all said yes!).
The festival featured a host of other agritainment. Our free tractor-pulled hayrides ran throughout the festival, allowing guests to see the flower fields from a different perspective. Our resident farm animals greeted and sometimes licked all of the smiling faces that came to see them. We had pony rides, horse and carriage rides, face painting, crafters and artists out in the fields. And if the sights, sounds and smells of the farm wasn’t enough, our bakery barn and daily food trucks kept all of our visitors taste buds satisfied with delicious sweet and savory treats.
