Breathtaking Lakeville Sunflower Fields Open Soon For the Picking
It's the moment we've all been waiting for. After months and months of anticipation and waiting, it's just about sunflower season again here on the SouthCoast, and we can barely wait any longer!
Golden Hour Tulip Farm in Lakeville may be most well-known for its stunning fields of tulips that come into full bloom every spring (I mean, tulips are in their name), but the farm's soil also houses thousands of brilliant sunflowers every summer, and they're available to pick as soon as early August.
Golden Hour's u-pick sunflower season starts August 11 and the farm expects the bloom to last for about three to four weeks. Over 120 thousand sunflowers of nearly a dozen breeds will be on display throughout the fields, and whether you want to clip your own to bring home or just snap a few family photos in from of the flowers, this Lakeville farm is the spot to be.
But if you want to make a trip out, you'll want to be prepared. Because of capacity restraints, tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance through Golden Hour's website. Tickets aren't available quite yet, but should go on sale about one week ahead of opening day. Luckily, the farm will be open on Barstow Street seven days a week throughout the season, every Monday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and every Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. General admission for anyone 10 years and older will include five u-pick sunflowers and will cost $10 for weekdays and $12 for weekends. Each additional sunflower will cost $1 per stem.
