If you look at sunflowers and don't feel a warm, tingly feeling of hope, love, and inspiration, you might not be human. You can experience all those emotions and more when you're standing in a huge field of sunflowers this July, with yellow rays of sunshine as far as the eye can see. Georgia’s prettiest sunflower field is opening next month for the photo shoot of your dreams.
Anderson's Sunflower Farm is opening in July for sunflower season. Sunflowers are only fully bloomed at their peak for about two weeks, so you must mark your calendar for a visit.
For only $10 per car, you can park and explore this adorable farm in Cumming, Georgia. There is a barn, tractor, and vintage car parked onsite for a little more to see outside of the pristine field.
The farm is the prime location for a photo shoot this summer, but if you're bringing a professional camera for a shoot, it'll cost you $35.
If you want to take some sunflowers for the road, you can clip your own or buy some of the pre-cut ones. They're sold for $8 for a half dozen and $12 for a dozen. You can also support local business and buy some delicious honey, made right there on the farm.
You won't be able to leave without buying some lemonade and water sold by the precious kids on this family farm, so be prepared to bring some extra change.
One thing to be cautious of is the number of bees on the farm. With the number of sunflowers, they're unavoidable. Proceed with caution if you have an allergy or just an extreme fear of these honey makers. They're hard at work but won't bother you if you don't bother them.
You can bring the whole fam, including the kids and doggies. Keep an eye out on the farm's official Facebook page for news on the exact opening date!
