Wandering a Sunflower Field in Florida

U-pick sunflower field in Florida

I’ve always loved sunflowers and wanted to visit a sunflower field for years. I even wanted to have our engagement photos taken in one (it didn’t happen but a girl can dream). Turns out there’s a beautiful field just a couple hours drive away and we finally got an opportunity to visit!

Southern Hill Farms in Clermont, Florida is a perfect spot for a day-trip if you’re looking for a sunflower field in Florida. Plus, it’s sure to brighten up your Instagram feed!

What to See & Do at Southern Hill Farms

If you love sunflowers, you won’t want to miss a chance to visit Southern Hill Farms. The fields are open to the public twice a year (spring and fall) for u-pick and there’s something to offer for the whole family. We visited with my grandparents during the annual Fall Festival which includes live music, food trucks, kiddie rides, a pumpkin patch, and u-pick sunflowers and zinnias.

Here’s a look at our favorite activities on the farm:

U-pick Sunflowers & Zinnias

The u-pick sunflowers are definitely the main event, but if you visit in spring you can also pick blueberries and peaches! The sunflowers are $2 per stem and you can check-out the scissors for cutting the flowers before you head into the field (free to rent).

If you want to get photos without a lot of people in the background, we recommend you wander closer to the back of the field.

Once you’re done in the sunflower field, you may want to pick a few zinnias to take home as well. The zinnia field is so colorful and cheerful!

Food & Drink

There are lots of food and drink choices during the fall festival. We saw everything from BBQ, Mexican street corn (made with fresh corn from the farm), burgers, apple cider donuts, and even a Maryland crab cakes food truck!
