Sunflowers Taking Flight FAQ

When will the sunflowers bloom and when is the event?

Our 2023 season will begin Monday, July 24, 2023-Sunday, August 6, 2023, please watch our Facebook and/or website for the latest updates.  We planted our sunflowers hoping that they will be in peak bloom for the event. Since sunflower growing is at the mercy of the weather, the exact time of peak bloom is unpredictable and may be earlier or later than our estimated event dates. Please check the Sunflower Status on our website and on our Facebook page before your visit. (920-923-1715). The peak bloom lasts for about two weeks.

Bouquets are available at our Sunflower Shack.  Suggested $10 cash donation for a bouquet of 5 sunflowers, 100% of the donations will go to the Old Glory Honor Flight.

We do not accept reservations or hold sunflower bouquets.

We plant the seeds and let Mother Nature do the rest. On some occasions we may run out of cut flowers. Our army of volunteers can only cut so many and on occasion we do run out. You can always check our social media for the most current information.

What to bring

We are a working farm. We open our fields for this event and fields are uneven and rocky. There are walking paths through the main sunflower field. Please choose appropriate footwear for your visit. Sturdy shoes or even rain boots are a good choice as the fields can get muddy. Bring a bucket with some water for your sunflowers (leave in the car) for the ride home.

Care of the Sunflowers

Try not to leave your flowers in the sun for too long especially mid-day. Keep them in a bucket of water for the drive home to ensure freshness. (we do not provide the bucket, nor the water, prepare ahead of time)

How to keep your cut flowers blooming as long as possible: We cut flowers early in the day when the sun isn’t as hot. Put them in water right away and keep out of the hot sun. Don’t leave them in a hot car. When you get them home, sunflowers will do best with indirect sunlight and the cooler it is the longer they last. Sunflowers drink a lot of water so check the water level daily and change it if it gets cloudy. Adding flower food will not prolong the blooming time.

My sunflowers are droopy, can they be saved? Yes, well as long is it wasn’t for a couple days! Sunflowers are tough, get them fresh water right away, cut the stems,  and out of direct sunlight. They should perk up within a few hours.
