Sunflower Trail

NJ Sunflower Trail at Von Thun’s

Although it is still too early to confirm, we hope to have the Sunflower Trail open by the July 4 weekend … stay tuned for updates!

Nothing says summer like the beauty of a wide open sunflower field! NJ Sunflower Trail at Von Thun Farms is located in scenic Washington Township, NJ (Warren County). While you’re visiting, you can wander the Trail, pick raspberries, blackberries or peaches, cut your own summer flowers, visit our farm animals, shop our farm market, and take as many photos as you’d like! We have 10+ photo ops to make your experience complete like our signature red truck, Chevy bench, and butterfly wings.

Tripods and other professional photography equipment are not allowed in the Sunflower Trail during regular business hours. We are offering special hours for photographers, so please, no scheduled professional photography sessions at the farm this summer during our regularly scheduled open hours.

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.

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


Good To Know …

  • Via the Governor’s Executive Order, visitors over the age of two (2) will be required to wear face coverings on the farm if they are medically able. Visitors may remove their masks for eating and taking photos. We understand this is going to be a challenge for everyone and we truly do appreciate your complying with this policy.
  • For the safety of our visitors and livestock, no pets please. The only exception is trained service animals (not emotional support animals). Although we’d love to allow pets, if we allow the good ones, we’ll have to allow them all, even those that aren’t as good as their owners say they are.
  • It gets hot in the field. Bring a drink, and maybe even an umbrella on sunny days.
  • Wear a hat, sunscreen, and closed toe shoes. The field can be uneven in spots, and the trail is dirt.
  • Strollers are allowed, but may be tough to push in spots.
  • 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.
  • The Sunflower Trail is NOT offered at our South Brunswick location.

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.
