SKELLY'S SUNFLOWER EXPERIENCE

What is the Sunflower Experience?

2022 will be our 5th year of spectacular sunflowers at Skelly's! We plant more than 5 acres of beautiful yellow 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 4 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: straw bales, 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). New for 2022: We will have a variety of different colors in our cutting field for you to choose from! Lastly, the specialty flower area is around a quarter acre of more than 20 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.

Check out our video below for a glimpse into this beautiful season!

When will the field be open?

Our sunflower field is typically in bloom in late July through early August. We are aiming to have our field in bloom around the last week in July. Once the field is in bloom, we typically keep it open for 2.5 weeks. Keep checking back for updates as we near planting dates in late May!

Professional Photography in our Fields

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 and after hours.
