The sunflowers are plenty and they’re in bloom right now at Lynd Fruit Farm (aka The Patch on 37)! Load up the car and charge up the phone because this Ohio sunflower field is ready and waiting for your visit.

This is the second year for this 8 acre blooming spectacle. They estimate over a million blossoms in the fields. Now that’s a whole lot of “s’miles” of sunflowers!

With all these acres of flowers, you know you’re going to see the traditional sunflowers in the fields … but what you might not expect is the variety! They have white sunflowers, red sunflowers, and combos too! With 26 varieties, you’re sure to find a favorite.

Speaking of favorites, your admission includes one cut flower to take home. Plan ahead – you’ll need to bring your own hand pruners (the small kind that would fit in your pocket). They will not have loaners on hand but you will be able to purchase pruners in the tent.

Come ready for photos! They have an old Chevy truck in the field, just waiting for you and your camera.

On the weekends you can enjoy live music on the farm, wagon rides, and food trucks.

When will the sunflowers be in bloom at Lynd Fruit Farm?
