Our Sunflower Fields are temporarily closed until 9/26
Sunflowers are now blooming on our farm. Our sunflower fields are open 7am-dusk daily. To find out where the best picking fields are, stop in at the store for instructions. Don’t forget to bring along clippers and something to take your sunflowers home in. If you do forget, we do sell clippers and vases in the store. We also have a snipping station on the store’s front porch for you to cut down your sunflowers and get water from the hose by the handicap ramp.
Cutting your Sunflowers:
Always cut stems at a 45% angle
Cutting blooms that are not open or only partially opened will make them last longer when you get home
Put in water immediately
Once you get your sunflowers home:
Recut your stems at a 45 degree angle so stem can draw up water and does not sit flat on the bottom of the jar
Take off any foliage at the bottom so there is none in the vase especially none submerged in the water
Change water every 1-3 days and recut stems at a 45 degree angle each time
Some ways to help sunflowers last longer:
Add to water in the beginning and at each water change:
2 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar
Few drops of vodka with 1 tsp of sugar
One crushed aspirin
1/2 c of clear soda
Most sunflowers should last 7-15 days if taken care of.
Are dogs allowed?
Yes as long as they are on a leash and well behaved. We do ask that if an event is going on at the farm, you do not bring them.
