See Circle City: Indianapolis Moms Guide to Sunflower Farms


When I think of summertime, I think of berry picking, splash pads and pool time, and the constant laundering of beach towels. I also think of flowers – bright and beautiful flowers that lift our spirits and make us happy. Sunflowers are a staple of summertime, especially a field of sunflowers, where they grow above our heads as they naturally lean toward the sun. Indianapolis has many sunflower farms that you can visit on a nice summer day! See Circle City with us – here is our roundup of local Indianapolis sunflower farms.

Spencer Farm – Noblesville

First on our list of Indianapolis sunflower farms is Spencer Farm. Spencer Farm’s sunflower experience will open August 1st! Check out their Facebook page for updated information daily. Spencer Farm plants these sunflowers for you to explore, take pictures, and cut flowers for an additional cost. The blooms are estimated to last two to three weeks.

Their hours are 9:00 am-6:00 pm Monday thru Saturday, 12:00-6:00 pm on Sundays. And as always, while you are there, be sure to stop by the farm store for a generous selection of additional produce and sweet treats.

Tuttle Orchards – Greenfield

Tuttle Orchards’ Sunflower Meadow will open tentatively on August 25th this year, and this anticipated experience will allow families to explore a one-way trail through three acres of sunflowers. Reservations are encouraged! The sunflowers are estimated to bloom on and off for approximately two weeks. Tickets also include the Tractor Town Kids Play Area and cutting your own sunflowers in a separate area at $3 per flower (including tax). After you cut your flowers, you will have access to a self-service wrapping station. They are also offering special playdate pricing as well. Check back for hours when the Sunflower Meadow experience opens.

Beasley’s Orchard – Danville

Now that their berry season is finished, Beasley Orchard is planning other events and u-picks for the rest of the summer. Their U-Pick Sunflower season is planned for mid-August, so make sure to check back to their website or social media pages for updated information on how you can get your tickets. They have planted sunflowers on seven acres for you to roam, pick sunflower blooms, and take photos during golden hour. Their hours for u-pick sunflowers will be Fridays and Saturdays from 9:00 am-8:30 pm, Sundays 12:00-8:30 pm.

Stuckey Farm – Sheridan

Stuckey Farm is another great place to visit during the sunflower craze of summer, so make sure you go to their Sunflower Festival! To be held Labor Day weekend, this year will be bigger than ever, with many varieties of sunflowers to explore and photo opportunities offered throughout your experience.

There are two ways to purchase tickets to the Sunflower Festival, either on their website or via their mobile app (saves you $2 per ticket).

Conner Prairie Sunflower Fields – Fishers

This outdoor experience at Conner Prairie is returning this summer, available for a limited time coming soon. Explore the three acres of sunflower fields, including three beautiful sunflower varieties, while it lasts!
