The NEW Safety Plan for our staff and farm guests safety and well being:

Your safety and the safety of our staff is the top priority. We are looking forward to your visit, and have just a few new processes and procedures for guests to follow:

  • Sanitation is a must. We will provide hand sanitizer throughout the farm as well as additional hand wash stations so that we can all help stop the spread of germs.
  • We are moving to a timed-ticketing program to limit the total number of guests to 25% of our total capacity. NO tickets will be sold at the gate. You are not limited in the amount of time you enjoy at our farm but we are asking you to pick an arrival time so that we can help spread the crowd out.
  • As our state’s mask mandate is ever-changing we ask that you adhere to the current mask requirements for our state on the day of your visit. We ask that you respect others in attendance and maintain adequate distance from groups other than the one you came with.
  • Flower clippers will be supplied to you for cutting your blooms. We will be sanitizing them between uses for everyone’s safety.
  • Our backfields are plenty spacious which will give ample room for distancing while waiting for food and flower purchasing. Live music will be outdoors under tents. Please keep a safe social distancing while enjoying the entertainment.

Extras- Pick your own Sunflowers

  • Bouquet of 6 sunflower blooms. $12
  • Bucket of 12 sunflowers blooms. As many blooms you can fit in the bucket- $18
