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!

We went to see the sunflowers and loved it. Ice cream was okay it's not the best around town. Ekonk is better. But walking thru the sunflowers after the festival was done was worth the drive. Don't go during. It's chaotic and no parking !
