Before you visit a sunflower field in Central Ohio:
– Be sure to check links that we include for Facebook and websites. Fields can bloom and fade quickly, so it’s the best way to ensure you’ll find a field full of flowers.
– Follow all rules, including for parking, picking flowers (usually a no-no, unless it’s a ticketed event), taking photos (some prohibit professional photographers unless they pay a fee) and where to walk.
– Respect others photo ops, and be considerate about how much time you spend in a prime spot. Get your IG perfect shots and move on – especially at sunset and other prime time.
– Some require admission. If they don’t, consider supporting the farm or organization with a donation or a purchase from the farm market.
