July 18, 2020 - the sunflowers have just started to bloom! Our field will open to the public today starting at 10:00am and will be open daily from 10:00am-7:30pm. Sundays are 10:00am-6:30pm.
The field is closed if it is raining.
**Please note: the County of Prince Edward has established a bi-law that says masks are required for outdoor markets and farmer's markets. We fall into that category and will be asking you to wear a mask while going through the sunflower path. You are welcome to take it off to take some pictures! :)
Please respect our business with this decision. If you choose not to wear a mask, we will just ask you to sign a form saying that you are choosing not to wear a face covering - we don't need to know the reason so we are not violating anyone's Human Rights. There is a fine of $1000 locally for not wearing a mask where it is required, so we feel that we are doing our due diligence by asking you to acknowledge that it was your decision not to wear one. It's a personal choice - we know that. We are just doing our part to keep people safe.
Also, if you are vehemently opposed to the restrictions put in place, it may be a year that you skip your visit to our field. Just a consideration.
Admission Prices to walk the sunflowers:
Adult 16+: $5.00
Youth 3-15: $3.00

You purchase tickets at the entrance to the field - cash preferred as there are no interac services outside.

FAQ about the sunflowers:
When do they bloom? Normally sunflowers will bloom anytime between mid-July and mid-August. We can never be certain - so please don't ask us to pin down a date. It all depends on Mother Nature - sun, rain, warm temps/cold temps - all out of our hands.
How long does the bloom last for? The blooms look amazing for 2 weeks and then start to fade - although they still look good. As the plant matures and starts making the seeds, the yellow flower starts to droop and die off. This is the natural progression for a sunflower.
