Each year Buttonwood Farm plants over 14 acres of sunflowers and harvests approximately 300,000 blooms for your viewing pleasure and to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Connecticut, a non-profit organization dedicated to granting wishes to children with critical illnesses.
Sunflowers are available while supplies last. Bouquets of 5 sunflowers will be given in exchange for a $10 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Connecticut. 100% of proceeds of the sunflower sales are given directly to Make-A-Wish, as well as proceeds from t-shirt sales, which feature a unique sunflower design each season. Over the past 13 seasons growing sunflowers Buttonwood Farms has been able to donate over 1 million dollars to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
And don’t forget to get a scoop or two of their famous ice cream while you’re there!
