Lets go to the Sunflower Field

July 6, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Alright, I really want to go to the Sunflower field. It is in Autaugaville, Alabama which is somewhat close to I think Prattville, Alabama. PLEASE EAT BREAKFAST OR SOMETHING BEFORE YOU COME AND PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS. The flowers are about 5’ high now. I’m guessing about 10-14 more days. Here’s a few things you should know:

The flowers are on the south side of Highway 14 this year. For our directionally challenged friends, that’s across the main highway from where they were the last couple of years. You can google “The Sunflower Field” for directions but keep in mind, google will take you to the field on the north side of the highway.

The field will be open from daylight till dark.


We have two plantings this year, so we will have blooming flowers for about a month.

We have 2019 souvenir buckets for you to fill with flowers. All you can put in the bucket for $10

You can also buy the flowers for $1 each if you chose.


2019 Flour sack towels are $12

We have potted flowers for you to take home and transplant. We have chosen the grey stripe (edible) variety for the pots. They are $3 each; 2 for $5 or 5 for $10.

We will have fresh cantaloupe and watermelon until they are gone.


We have extremely poor to NO internet service at the farm, so we can only accept cash or checks.

NO PETS PLEASE! There will be thousands of people walking through the fields and unfortunately, people don’t always clean up after their animals.

PLEASE EAT BEFORE YOU COME. PLEASE BRING CASH. INTERNET SERVICE IS HORRIBLE SO JUST GET OUT THERE WHEN YOU CAN AND I WILL LET YOU KNOW THE NIGHT BEFORE WHAT I AM WEARING.
WEAR COMFORTABLE CLOTHES, SHOES, SUNTAN LOTION AND BUG SPRAY.
YOU CAN ALSO BRING GARDENING SHEARS TO PICK YOUR SUNFLOWERS IF YOU WANT TO OR JUST TAKE PICTURES WITH THEM. THEY DO PROVIDE GARDENING SHEARS , BUT BRING YOUR OWN TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE.
THAT SHOULD COVER EVERYTHING.
ALSO, IF YOU GUYS WANT TO MEET AT THE HOOVER LIBRARY WE CAN ( WE WOULD MEET AT THE TOP PARKING LOT CLOSEST TO THE SENIOR CENTER AND MUNICIPAL DRIVE) WE CAN MEET THERE AT 9 AM WHICH MEANS WE WOULD GET TO THE FIELD BY 10:30 am OR A LITTLE AFTER AND SPEND AT LEAST AN HOUR OR TWO OUT THERE CHECKING OUT THE SUNFLOWERS. BRING WATER. YES IT WILL BE HOT
ONE MORE THING- BRING SOME EXTRA SHOES. IT TENDS TO GET MUDDY OUT THERE IF IT RAINS A LOT, BUT HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE ALL GOOD. KEEP CHECKING THIS DESCRIPTION FOR UPDATES
Update : You can purchase a bucket for 10 dollars and carry your sunflowers home in the bucket. Last year, I think a friend and I got wet paper towels and wrapped them in the paper towels and put them in like a plastic bag. The transportation issue is one reason we decided on the bucket. We suggest you put an inch or two of water in it and they will be fine. We will have water and we will have shears.
