Tips for Visiting a Sunflower Farm
Our friends at Jersey Family Fun, shared their 11 Tips for Visiting a Sunflower Farm.
The most important tip I found was to make sure you check the farm rules. They do all have rules about whether cutting is allowed, length of visit and more. Especially with social distancing for 2020, be sure to familiarize yourself with the rules even if it’s a place you have visited for years.
Other than that, I also liked the suggestions to bring your own shears and a water bottle as a vase.
