As promised, during our post, “Sunflower Fields Forever? Mountain Farm, Broad Haven“, here are our most recent photos of the sunflower field right at the end of Summer. Even when there are only a few flowering sunflowers left, the field is still a sight to behold. It’s also interesting to see the sunflowers dry and turn to seed, which can be harvested for a tasty snack, to grow more sunflowers or to feed the birds. Take a look at snapshots of the last of the summer sunflowers at Mountain Farm, Broad Haven:
Visiting The Sunflower Field, Mountain Farm, Broad Haven
The sunflower field can be found at Mountain Farm in Broad Haven in Pembrokeshire (SA62 3HU). Follow signs for Broad Haven until you start seeing Sunflower signs then follow them instead. They are only displayed when the sunflower field is open to the public, of course. As to be expected when visiting a farm, the road is narrow but they have cleverly organised one way in and a different road to exit out. Whenever we’ve visited it’s been quiet and there have been plenty of places to park.
We came for an evening adventure once more and just love this view before dusk. Beautiful!
Pick Your Own Sunflowers and Sunflower Seeds
We arrived out of hours but there was an honesty box where we could pay for our sunflowers and sunflower seeds. There were also secateurs to borrow to easily cut the flowers. This year, there were added hand sanitisation stations and plenty of safety information. This year it also says, “If you don’t want any flowers, then any small donation would be welcome.” Even when we’re not buying flowers, we’re happy to donate to be able to enjoy a walk around this flower field. The sea view itself is priceless.
Enjoy some more snapshots of the sunflower seed:
The colour purple.
Corn, for me, the symbol of the harvest season.
Despite there being fewer sunflowers left we still managed to collect a small posy and leave some for the next visitors. I love the smaller sunflowers indoors in a vase. We also bought some sunflower seeds. Roll on the Spring when we can plant them.
Before we left we accidentally had an “awkward family photo” taken- we wanted to keep the sunflower in view and I also didn’t want Caitlyn to feel left out so tried to stretch to cuddle her too! It didn’t work!
It was a lovely evening adventure, we’ve made a short film here in case you want to see more:
