Frequently Asked Questions 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.
May 23 & 31st, 2022 - The sunflowers have been planted! Now we just wait for Mother Nature to do her magic! Don't look for flowers before at least mid-July. Stay tuned to our social media for updates!
May 12, 2022 - The field is just getting ready to be planted! Watch our social media for updates! Remember - sunflowers do not grow back every year, we have to plant them! And it takes time for Mother Nature to grow them! See the FAQ above!

People keep inquiring - the sunflowers are no longer blooming. We harvested them for birdseed approximately 2.5 weeks ago. Thank you!

The sunflowers are now way past their bloom and are in seed production mode. We will leave the field open for viewing for this weekend (Aug 13,14 15) from 11-7pm - weather permitting. There is no charge to visit the field this weekend, but we do have a donation bucket up at the store which we will split between two charities of the staff's choice.
***Please note that you will NOT see a full field of blooming flowers if you come this weekend. The bloom is finished***

The 2nd planting of sunflowers are still blooming quite nicely but they will most likely start dropping their heads in the next few days. The back half of the field is well into seed production now so the heads have dropped their yellow flowers and the heads are full of seeds. This is the natural progression for a sunflower.
We are nearing the end of the season - I suspect that Wednesday will be our last day to allow people into the field.
July 31, 2021 - The sunflowers have been in bloom now for about 10 days. The 2nd planting is just starting to bloom as well. That means we probably have about 10-12 days left of the beautiful flowers! Make sure you check out our new page "2021 Sunflowers" for all the details you need to know before you arrive!
