The Sunflower Trail
Nothing says summer like the beauty of a wide open field of sunflowers! VonThun Farms Sunflower Trail is located in scenic Washington Township, Warren County NJ.
Bring the kids, and plan to make the Sunflower Trail your summer photo op destination! The field is beautiful and the views are amazing. We’ve planted 6+ acres of sunflowers that will provide continuous blooms for more than a month. You’re welcome to wander and linger, and take as many photos as you please. You can cut your own sunflowers to take home too! (PLEASE NOTE: The farm, and Sunflower Trail, are closed on Mondays) Tickets can be purchased online or upon arrival at the farm market.
SUNFLOWER TRAIL UPDATES:
Monday, September 2: The Sunflower Trail is officially closed for the season. The flowers in our last trail are now heavily in seed and are drooping heavily due to the weight of the seeds … there’s no more true beauty to the field for all to enjoy. We hope to see you next summer for our 2020 Sunflower Trail!
Wednesday, July 24: The Sunflower Trail is now OPEN for the season! Open daily 10am-6pm, closed on Mondays.
Tuesday, July 23: The Sunflower Trail is closed today due to the excessive amount of rain we received yesterday & the trail’s slippery conditions … we hope to open tomorrow. Stay tuned!
Friday, July 19: Although there are a few sunflowers that are starting to bloom, we think this heat is just too much and it’s keeping the flowers from blooming. The trail is now scheduled to open on Tuesday, July 23rd.

- Please allow a minimum of 30 minutes to get to and through our trail. (Photo op time additional!)
- Our farm market is open daily, 10am to 6pm.

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 Family Fun tickets OR a VonThun Farms upcoming event OR for a VonThun Farms gift card. NO cash refunds will be given.
