Overpriced ice cream, hay rides and corn maze. A pint of ice cream is $24. The sunflowers are the only thing worth visiting for. I'm a local.

Buttonwood Farm has beautiful sunflower fields that you can walk around and take pictures in. There area a couple of different areas where you can do this. I suggest driving around and finding where the cattle roam so you can see them as well.

The large fields of sunflowers is truly breathtaking. There are piles of flowers cut that you are able to take. Great area to walk and many spots for pictures. This is a scenic drive and a must stop. Bonus here is the homemade ice cream!
