Need something beautiful to look forward to? Everyone flocked to Stonebank Sunflower Farm last year, but there are many places to look for sunflowers. What I love about the sunflowers is their beautiful heads, sticking up into the sky, standing so tall. A magnificent plant, don’t you think so, too?! Find where you can find sunflower farms locally in and around Waukesha County and Lake Country!
Before you hop in the car, be sure be prepared. Be prepared to respect the farm that you are going to. These beautiful plants should be enjoyed by all. Please follow all farm rules as to where you can walk or stand and what you can touch. Please also give back if there is an option for a donation. Lastly, if you are going to the farm to pick the sunflowers (if allowed), please be sure to bring your own scissors or container if noted by the farm.
