Sunflower field at Tanners Orchard

Join us for The Sunflower Experience

When a sunflower field blooms, it’s a sight to be celebrated. And at Tanners Orchard, we do just that! Every year we invite the public to visit our sunflower field and appreciate all there is to love about sunflowers. This memorable event, known as “The Sunflower Experience,” takes place over the last two weeks in August and is filled with food, photo opportunities and fun for the entire family! Come see us during The Sunflower Experience starting at 10 AM Monday – Saturday.


The Sunflower Breakfast starts at 8 AM next to the sunflower field. This time gives individuals the rare chance to enjoy a delicious meal and watch the sun shine off the flowers as it works its way across the sky. Seating for this portion of the event is limited, so make sure you sign up ASAP. Doing so will also ensure early entry into the fields. This breakfast is available on the last 2 Saturdays in August.

Photo Opportunities

After breakfast, you will have the chance to view our sunflowers up close. As you walk through the fields, you will find plenty of photo opportunities along the way. We encourage you to think of creative ways to capture the experience and then tag us in any pictures you publish online.

Fun for the Family

Aside from plenty of photo ops, The Sunflower Experience also features several fun activities. Each individual who attends our event will get to choose one sunflower from our field. This complimentary gift makes a great addition to any kitchen or dining room.

After you’ve selected and picked the perfect flower, you can make your way to the Back 40 Fun Acres. Some other attractions you’ll want to visit include our Farm Market, petting farm, and orchard!
