When to see Sunflowers in WI

Sunflowers often start in late July, through August. Once they bloom they often last about 10 days. Most fields will plant at different times to ensure there is always something blooming. It varies by the farm.

We are open Fridays-Sundays in August with a backyard full of activites for all ages (kiddie zipline, obstacle course, yard games, and so much more), speciality drink flights (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), baby goats, wagon rides, live music on Friday and Saturday nights, and of course the beautiful flowers!
