Farms in Fall are synonymous with pumpkins and apples. But, did you know that farms in New Jersey host big sunflower festivals right in this area?
Holland Ridge Farms and Dalton Farms in New Jersey host annual sunflower festivals in September, and into October. At these ticketed events, you can mosey on in and pick yourself some fresh fall flowers from each farm’s giant fields.
Holland Ridge Farms’ Fall Flower Festival began on September 15, 2023. The festival is open through October 15, 2023. Check their website and Instagram for details!
As for Dalton Farms, the start date for their Sunflower Festival was on August 24, 2023. It’ll run through October 8, 2023, so don’t miss your chance to get your flowers.
There’s more to these festivals than picking flowers. For one, sunflower fields, albeit flower fields in general, are wildly Instagramable. There are tons of props and photo-ops scattered through the fields for you to pose with. There are ways to make entire days out of these events, due to the farms’ inclusion of good food and drink. It’s a day of fun for the whole family.
We highly recommend that you check out these stunning fall festivals while you can, but don’t fret too much if you miss them. Each farm also hosts their own Spring tulip festivals with tons of flowers and other beauties to pick from. But make sure you get to at least one. They’re incredible!
