This place is a family favorite. The ride to get there is beautiful, and the fields of sunflower make it a must see in the summertime. All of the ice cream is made there and delicious. But have your wallet ready, because it isn't cheap....More

Great family attraction. Many acres of in-bloom Sunflowers as far as you can see. You can walk or take a ride through the fields, photograph or just see the flowers. The kids will love the tractor rides towing kids and parents in small "cow" carts....More

Homemade fresh ice cream! Not only fresh ice cream but also home made waffle cones! We also enjoyed the fields of sunflowers.

The sunflowers were everywhere! It was just gorgeous. Take the hay ride, or the cow train. Buy a bunch of sunflowers. The kids are going to love it. All the proceeds go to the "Make A Wish" foundation. And of course there is ice cream!...More

We went on a Thursday, it was crowed and we didn't get ice cream or do the hayride, but just walking through the sunflower field was nice and seeing the cows. Sunflower bunches are $10 and I bought a nice t shirt for $20, proceeds...More

It may not be close to anything but it's the best ice cream around. You MUST have the waffle cone. The wonderful smell alone will bring you in!!! A must for a summer adventure!

The ice cream is decent, not over the top great, but the problem is, it is extremely expensive. I ordered a 2 scoop cone for me and a scoop of vanilla for each of my dogs and it was $16

Yes, it's more expensive than most but they don't use commercially prepared ice cream either. Everything is fresh and made on sight. Great selection if flavors...my favorite is almond not or pumpkin. Cows come to visit periodically and in July they have the fields bursting...More

The sunflower festival has hayrides through the sun flowers and there is a little 'cow' train for the under 5 kids. No animals. Just really good ice cream.
