How much does it cost?

Admission to Dunnstown Sunflower Field is $10.

Each sunflower stalk you pick is charged at a very reasonable price of $4 per stalk.

Cash is preferred during the day due to poor wifi signal at the farm.

When can I visit Pick Your Own Sunflowers?

The opening date for Pick Your Own Sunflowers in 2023 is Sunday, March 12, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Due to the weather, the sunflower field has been slow to bloom this season (last year it was from late February to April).

The start date is usually only confirmed at the last minute, as the owners always make sure the land is in full bloom before it opens to the public.

It’s the same with the call at the end of the season. We were very lucky the year we went as the sunflowers stayed in bloom longer than expected so the season dates were extended.

Otherwise we would have missed it!
