Special Events at the New Jersey Sunflower Trail

If you visit the farm during the summer, there’s a great chance we’ve got another fun event going on! The thing all these events have in common: SUNFLOWERS!


Farm to Table Dinner: Our Farm to Table Dinner Series is an opportunity for us to showcase all of our delicious, homegrown produce, beef, and honey while you sit back, relax and enjoy a beautiful evening on the farm! We partner with Chef Kelly Carroll to create an incredible menu utilizing only Von Thun’s products.

Sunflower Food Truck Festival: We’ll provide the sunflowers and MegaBite events will bring the food! Our event partner, MegaBite Events, will set up a perfectly-curated food truck festival featuring more than a dozen food trucks, a beer & wine bar, live music, kids games & amusements, hatchet throwing, and more!

Pick & PaintsIt’s like a paint & sip – but farm style! We’ve partnered with the ladies at Artistution to bring you step-by-step guidance on creating a one-of-a-kind painting that you can display in your home. After painting, we’ll also pick some berries or visit the Sunflower Trail depending on the season!
