Our Sunflower Festival is a special to celebrate our beautiful sunflower fields.

Our sunflowers are harvested in the fall to use for bird seed, however, they are a sight to behold while they are blooming.  Oilseed sunflowers are not like ornamental sunflower varieties that bloom for 3 weeks or more.  Oilseed sunflowers bloom and begin to turn their heads to start drying their seed after only about 12 days.  This means that we have a limited window to enjoy them in.  This window is when we hold our Sunflower Festival; when they are the most beautiful.  Even if you can't make it to the festival on Saturday, we will remain open every day from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. for the remainder of the bloom. You will be able to walk through the sunflowers, pick them (for an additional cost), take pictures (for personal use) & just enjoy the view.  Feel free to bring in a picnic on the non-festival days.

From the joy these fields of sunflowers bring, came the desire to give back to our community.  We partnered with the Rio High School FFA because they are an organization we feel strongly about.  We are fifth generation farmers, who fully support the future of agriculture.  The pairing couldn't be more perfect.  We donate the profits that the farm takes in over the entire Sunflower Festival.  We know this would not have been possible without all of you that come to enjoy the sunflowers with us.
