Our beautiful sunflower field is now in full bloom here at the farm. Did you know that sunflowers are well-known for being happy flowers due to their association with the sun? Always turning their faces towards it, they are strong and stand really tall and proud.
We haven’t grown them before in such quantity before but had a bit of spare land here in Collingham so we decided to do something different, hoping they would add colour to our fields. They certainly have – and we can sell them as flowers or press them for their oil!
Sunflowers – normally associated with France – ours are home grown Yorkshire Sunflowers! Happy Yorkshire Day!
