S.A.V.E. Sunflower Seed Program and Sunflower Educational Tours!

We are proud to be working with the New Jersey Audubon's S.A.V.E. Program! Enjoy the bloom of sunflowers in and around our farm - acres and acres of Black-Oil Sunflowers! The black oil seeds have very thin shells, easy for virtually all seed-eating birds to crack open, and the kernels within have a high fat content, extremely valuable for birds, especially as food during migration and winter. They also attract more of a variety of bird species than use of other seeds. Educational and picturesque Sunflower Tours are fun for the whole family!

Sun flower Tour information!

Our Sunflower Tours will start on August 29th, 2014. Following is general information regarding our tours. We are excited to kick off another great season!

We were happy to offer fun and picturesque tours of 30 acres of Black Oil Sunflowers that were planted throughout our farm! We are proud to be working with NJ Audubon to provide an educational, fun filled hay ride with optimum photo locations - at just the right time of day - to capture these gorgeous, happy flowers at their best!§ We were as excited as you were to see the sunflowers in bloom. We had asked for everyone to please be respectful of our farm while visiting. Taking a scheduled tour will be the best way to ensure a fun, safe & educational visit!
