The Sunflower Field in Yellow Springs
Sunflower Field in Yellow Springs expected to bloom mid September
Every year, several acres of sunflowers burst into bloom in a field along U.S. 68, attracting hundreds of visitors who stop to take pictures. The sunflower field is located on US Rt 68 between the village of Yellow Springs and Youngs Jersey Dairy, across from Peifer Orchards.
This year, the Sunflower Field is expected to bloom around mid-September.
Here's what you need to know:
- The sunflower field is in the no fly zone of the Springfield Airport so drones are not permitted.
- No commercial activity in the field - soliciting professional photography services, other services, or goods is not permitted. (Photography itself is permitted)
- Please do not pick the sunflowers. They are here to enjoy and commune with, not to destroy and take home.
- Absolutely no weddings or parties in the field.
The sunflowers will bloom for about 2 weeks. For the best photos, visit on a sunny day in the first couple of hours after sunrise or before sunset.
Above all, please be respectful when visiting. The sunflower field is private property, owned by a family who live on the farm and plant the sunflowers for all of us to enjoy. Please do NOT park or stop on U.S. 68. Doing so creates a hazard for those driving past the field. Instead, turn down the lane off of U.S. 68 and park in the open pasture to your right. Parking is free.
Thank you to Dave and Sharen Neuhardt and the Tecumseh Land Trust for this amazingly beautiful and generous gift to the community!
