Guide To Sunflower Fields In NW Ohio


The bees want me to tell you that it’s sunflower season, y’ all. That means several farms and fields in the area are offering U-Pick sunflowers and other fun festivities. Whether you want to take a day to have some family fun or you want to meet up with a few girlfriends, these Northwest Ohio farms and sunflower fields are perfect for endless frolicking and admiration (during business hours of course).

However, as your friendly neighborhood pollinator enthusiast, I urge you to pick responsibly and teach your littles to respect our pollinator friends and let them do their job. Only take cuttings from bee/butterfly free flowers.
