Sunflowers For Wishes


  • Buttonwood Farm 473 Shetucket Turnpike Griswold, CT, 06351 United States (map)
sunflowers for wishes

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!
