The sunflower field at Whitehall Farm in Yellow Springs is back this year, and expected to bloom within the next few weeks.
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 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!
