Standing up to twelve-feet-tall, with heads as big around as a basketball, these sunflowers at Gull Meadow Farms in Richland are hard to miss.

A shot of their nectar, like a mini-bar for local honeybees in search of a drink.

"We have four acres of sunflowers and probably thirty different types of sunflowers," Gull Meadow Manager Justin Wendzel said.

Some bloomed a couple of weeks ago, while others are still growing into different colors, shapes and sizes -- all ready to greet visitors for Sunflower Days starting for adults only July 29, 2021, and the rest of the family from July 30 through August 1.

Winding paths through the sunflower field lead to hidden treasures.

"Spaced throughout the sunflower field, we have about ten different photo props." Wendzel said.

From an antique piano, to a tractor, to this giant rocking chair -- all places to pose with the people you love for a picture you can take home.

"We're just looking to give people that fun experience outside," Wendzel said.

The cost of admission also covers a sunflower to-go, just one of the many treats offered at Sunflower Days. In good company with donut sundaes, cider floats, and discounted tickets when you buy them online.

Another treat, the cooler temperatures in the weather cards as high temperatures only reach the 70s.
