Sunflower Spectacular

This spring, Wickham Farms planted more than 85,000 sunflower seeds and 15 different sunflower varieties to cover a five acre field with beautiful sunflowers - that's about four football fields of sunflowers! The sunflowers are part of sustainable farming practices and our crop rotation strategy to maintain good soil health at our farm. After the sunflowers bloom, we will harvest them and bring them to Golisano Children's Hospital as part of our Spread the Sunshine effort to help brighten the days of others. Before harvesting the sunflowers, we will open the field to the public for the Sunflower Spectacular event.

Whether you want to soak in the picturesque scenes, pick your own sunflowers, get lost in the new giant (five-acre) corn maze, hop on a hayride through the vegetable fields and apple orchard, enjoy fresh donuts, test your aim with the brand new apple cannons, or pick your own early-season apples, the Sunflower Spectacular offers an experience to talk about for years to come! Come enjoy the end of summer and beginning of fall by exploring the sheer beauty and colors of tens of thousands of sunflowers. Don't forget your cameras, as the perfect picture (and selfie) spots will be plentiful!

The event will run from 11 AM to 4 PM on the following four dates:
• Saturday, August 26th
• Sunday, August 27th
• Saturday, September 2nd
• Sunday, September 3rd

General Admission tickets are $5 online and $7 at the gate (children 2 and under are free). Premium Admission and Ultimate Admission tickets are available for more fun and savings. Tickets can be purchased online at: wickhamfarms.ticketleap.com/sunflower-spectacular/. Save $2 by purchasing online!
