The large fields of sunflowers is truly breathtaking. There are piles of flowers cut that you are able to take. Great area to walk and many spots for pictures. This is a scenic drive and a must stop. Bonus here is the homemade ice cream!

We went to see the sunflowers and loved it. Ice cream was okay it's not the best around town. Ekonk is better. But walking thru the sunflowers after the festival was done was worth the drive. Don't go during. It's chaotic and no parking !

They have the best pumpkin ice cream I've had where there were bright bursts of orange pumpkin smoothly blended in, and the ice cream isn't too sweet. They have some original flavors too and a huge selection. I wish they had a description of what...More

A day trip to see the sunflowers all in bloom. You have to go at the end of July to see this. They also have an ice cream stand. And rides through the sunflower fields very nice. !!

This place is a family favorite. The ride to get there is beautiful, and the fields of sunflower make it a must see in the summertime. All of the ice cream is made there and delicious. But have your wallet ready, because it isn't cheap....More

Sunflowers are used as a fundraiser and make amazing pictures for just 1 week in July, usually towards the end of the month. But then they do a corn maze in the fall.

The sunflower festival has hayrides through the sun flowers and there is a little 'cow' train for the under 5 kids. No animals. Just really good ice cream.
