Skelly's Sunflower Experience FAQs

What exactly is the sunflower experience? It's a 2.5 week season in late July/early August that features around 30 different varieties of sunflowers totaling 150,000 blooms in our 6 acre field! There are a lot of special events we have planned in a small period of time. Read below for more information.


What is the Sunflower Experience?

2023 was our 6th year of planting sunflowers! We plant around 6 acres of beautiful sunflowers for you to walk through and enjoy. We have three special areas in our field: the walking area, the cutting area, and the specialty flower area.


Our walking area is around 5 acres and features "prop stops," 2 viewing platforms and so many opportunities for photos! We have signs directing you to prop stops and viewing platforms throughout our field. These prop stops are little areas cut out off the main path and include items you can use for picture props and backgrounds (examples: old tractors, ladders, rustic fences).


The cutting area is used only for picking out the best sunflowers for cutting to take home with you! At least one flower is included in your admission price (see below). The cutting area features over 10 different varieties of flowers for you to pick out your perfect bouquet from!


Lastly, the specialty flower area is around a quarter acre of around 30 different varieties of sunflowers and is located right at the entrance of the walking field. Enjoy multi-colored flowers, branching flowers, short and tall flowers and flowers with large and small heads! This area is not used for cutting. New in 2023: enjoy our brand new "pollinator path" that features informational signs about sunflowers with a little fun kids activity at each stop!


When does the field open and how much does it cost?

Our sunflower field is now closed for the season. See you again in July 2024!

Professional Photography Policy in our Field

We welcome all sorts of professional photographers to our fields! You don't have to rent a certain space in our field. As long as every single person (including you!) pays admission, there is no other fee for photos. Please share some with us via Facebook messenger or Instagram direct messages! If you would like to take pictures around the rest of the farm, you will need to sign a waiver. Photographers are only allowed in our field during business hours. No trespassing in our fields before or after hours.
