The sunflower field

We have cut pathways through the sunflowers to make it easy for you to explore the whole area.​ There will be different things to explore, and photo opportunities around the field. 

Picking your sunflowers

We will have a dedicated cutting area of the sunflower field, where you will be able to pick which sunflower you would like, and a member of staff will cut it for you. One sunflower stem is included in the cost of your ticket. Further stems can be purchased for £2 per stem. We accept cash and card payments. 
Customers cannot use their own cutting equipment, e.g. scissors or secateurs.
