Sunflower fields make the perfect backdrop for a photo shoot, so dress up and head out to one of Ontario’s sunflower farms. Depending on the farm, you may be able to pick your own sunflowers or buy bouquets to take home.

Operating dates may change depending on the weather and growing conditions, so check for updates before you visit a sunflower farm. When possible, purchase tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.

Be mindful of farm etiquette. Heed parking instructions, and do not park on the side of a highway or neighbouring private property. Do not pick flowers outside of designated pick-your-own fields. If a farm is pet-friendly, ensure your pet is leashed and you pick up after it.

Most farms have a separate policy for booking professional or commercial photography sessions, including the use of drones.

Following these rules will ensure that everyone can enjoy the full glory of these gorgeous blooms.
