Photography Policies

Our sunflower fields are a special place & we thoroughly encourage our visitors to make memories & take photos! Bring your camera and  click away at the spectacular views, thousands of sunflowers & our many photo ops … just be sure to practice proper social distancing & be courteous of others. And please, no tripods as they tend to block the pathways while in use.

If you are a professional photographer, please check out our photo sessions page for information on our exclusive photographer’s hours.


U-Cut Summer Flowers

We’re not just about sunflowers at the farm – we grow a wide variety of other flowers that you can cut and use to make your own bouquet!

We grow zinnias, marigolds, feather and cockscomb celosia, colored sunflowers, statice, ageratum, and lisianthus. Buy a vase or jar from us and fill it with as many cut flowers as you can! You must have a ticket to the Sunflower Trail in order to enter the u-cut flower fields.

Standard sunflowers can NOT be included in the bouquets. 

Small: $5
Medium: $10
Large: $20

Disclaimer & Important Info …

  • Sunflowers are an agricultural crop and are therefore subject to blooming and growing condition variables as well as the weather. Sunflower Trail dates that are listed are anticipated and approximate, as we cannot guarantee when the sunflowers will start or end blooming. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for Sunflower Trail updates. The Sunflower Trail is an outdoor event, and is therefore held weather permitting.
  • Should a complete crop failure arise or natural disaster occur, tickets will be exchanged for VonThun Farms Fall Festival tickets OR a VonThun Farms upcoming event OR for a VonThun Farms gift card. NO cash refunds will be given.
