SKELLY'S SUNFLOWER EXPERIENCE

What is the Sunflower Experience?

2021 is our 4th year of our sunflower field experience! 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). 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.

Scroll through the pictures at the bottom to see many we've taken over the years. You won't want to miss this!

When will the field be open?

Our sunflower field is now open daily 9am - 6pm with last tickets sold at 5:15pm. We hope to keep the field open through August 8th, but that all depends on the weather. See below for special event listings for each weekend!
