Stuckey Farm’s first annual Sunflower Festival drew more than 3,000 visitors during the first two days of its opening weekend.
The Sheridan, Indiana farm boasted five acres of 17 varieties of sunflowers and welcomed guests to explore the fields on Sept. 1-3 and 8-9.
As a special treat, each guest could cut and take home one sunflower or a bundle of three or six, depending on the admission ticket purchased.
Although many of the sunflowers had already been picked or had wilted by the time we visited on Sept. 3, the festival was still worth the visit – and next year promises to be even better.
The farm’s staff say they didn’t expect such a huge turnout, and to better accommodate the crowds, they plan to double or triple their sunflower field to 10-15 acres.
This exploring couple can’t wait!
Verdict: Definitely worth the visit, but be sure to stay hydrated and wear the right apparel for this hot summer experience.
