Visiting a sunflower field is a “must do” in late summer or fall, and fields are popping up all over. Grab your family or friends, and get ready to post your sunny pics on IG when you visit one of these sunflower fields around Central Ohio (or a little further). Most fields won’t bloom until late summer/early fall, so make sure you bookmark this page!
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. Some of the options listed below may already be finished for the season by the time you read this, or may not be in bloom yet.
– 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.
