Sunny Sunflower Strolls

Sunflower farms seem to be popping up all over the place lately and I am here for it! As a sucker for a giant sunflower patch (especially if it has fun photo stations), I recently checked another local one off my list.


The Sunflower Experience at Pingle’s Farm Market near Oshawa has over 100,000 blooms in their 6.5-acre sunflower field!

Here, you’ll find classic yellow sunflowers, but also giants over 10 feet tall, small dwarf teddies, beautiful red and yellow-hued ‘Ring of Fire’ sunflowers, crimson-coloured ones, and some so dark they almost look black!

Trails are cut throughout the sunflowers and there are 12 photo stops along the way, including a swing!

They also have a stand in the middle of the field with clippers, mason jars, and buckets. Your entrance ticket comes with one pick-your-own sunflower, but you can pay for more here as you pick up your clippers to go hunting for the perfect sunflowers to bring home.


When you’re ready for a break, you can head up to the food and entertainment area where you’ll find tasty treats like chicken and waffles and top off your day with a delicious jumbo macaron ice cream sandwich (it’s delicious…seriously don’t miss this!) while listening to live music.

Such a sunny way to spend a beautiful summer day!

For more info and to book tickets check out Pingle’s Farm Market

The Sunflower Experience only runs for select dates in August. However the farm has a variety of events going on year round.

Sunshine and Sunflowers

Like so many others, my travel plans so far in 2020 haven’t exactly worked out as I had hoped. I’ve really been missing getting out and exploring, especially during this beautiful summer weather.

I may not be able to journey as far as I usually do, but for August, I promised myself I’d get out and explore local tourist spots.

So today, I went five minutes up the road to check out The Sunflower Farm, located just outside my little town of Beaverton.

This beautiful farm, with 10 acres of sunflower fields, just opened a few weeks ago and I’ve been dying to check it out. (Apparently I wasn’t the only one as the wait to get in with current Covid regulations was over an hour…. so be prepared!)

Once inside, you follow the trail past 1000s of bright yellow sunflowers. I was in heaven.

Sunflowers have always been my favourite flower so wandering along the path here, with a sea of yellow stretching on and on, was the perfect way to spend a sunny, summer afternoon!
