You can wander through a massive field of sunshine that is only thirty minutes from downtown Ottawa.

Sultan Farm Sanctuary is a golden 15-acre field of sunflowers with a cleared path to walk through and enjoy the blooms. They are also an animal sanctuary and ask for donations, as opposed to an admission rate, to help care for these creatures in need.

The opening date depends on Mother Nature, but the farm told Narcity that they expect the sunflowers to begin blooming in early to mid-August. They do not have set hours so feel free to pop by at any time once open, keeping in mind weekends can get quite busy.

There is a marked sunflower trail with a cleared dirt path that you can follow through the fields, making it easy to take the perfect photos next to the flowers. Your visit can help a variety of rescued animal friends including two donkeys, three goats, 30 chickens, ten pigs and two barn cats.

There is no set rate for admission, but donations are highly encouraged as all of the proceeds go directly to caring for the animals and help cover the cost of vet visits, food and housing.

Donations can be made via cash in a box near the entrance, through a Paypal link on their website or by e-transfer if you message them for the email address.
