Tips for visiting a sunflower field

  • There usually aren’t washroom facilities available, so plan accordingly!
  • Please leave your four-legged friends at home! Dogs will not be welcomed on the property.
  • You’ll probably see more bees in your life in a sunflower field than anywhere else – but don’t worry – they’re more preoccupied with the flowers than you!
  • Leave the flowers as you see them! Please don’t harm them just to snap a photo. Many of these farms don’t offer pick-your-own, but if you aren’t sure, just ask!

Pin it for later!

    When we think of planning a road trip to see Niagara Falls, we usually think about adding in stops for wineries along the finger lakes region. I’ve never thought about adding in sunflower field stops ! This is awesome!
