Our second to last flower field of the year was visiting the sunflowers! West Union Gardens is by far the most stunning and breathtaking sunflower field. This is the one I would visit if you had to pick! Packer Orchards in Hood River and a new to us farm called Sauvie Island Farm has beautiful but smaller fields. We had the hottest Summer this year, so the sunflowers seem to be blooming earlier than usual. Visiting the sunflower fields in Oregon is one of our favorite activities!
**UPDATE** West Union Gardens now requires tickets prior to entering the field which can be purchased online. These do sell out, so make sure to plan in advance. As of 7/26/21, their first field is past peek bloom but they will have a second field blooming soon. Keep an eye out on their website for updates!
Since this post went up last year, we headed out to West Union Gardens and it was insanely beautiful! There is a trail that goes through the middle which is perfect for exploring and photos. We stopped at McMenemin's Cornelius Pass before for dinner and it was just a few miles down the road.
West Union Garden's asks for a donation to take photos in their field, but you can enter the field at sunset!
Packer Orchards holds their annual Sunflower Saturday in August, and this was our 2nd year attending. We ended up getting a late start and only made it with about an hour left. The girls still had fun playing in the corn kernels and the other kids activities they had going on. Packer sells the most amazing fruit and baked goods! It was such a hot day that the girls didn't last too long. We took a few photos and headed over to our favorite brewery, pFriem on the waterfront. They had an insanely long wait, so we let the girls play in the park across the street while we waited for our table.
This was our first time visiting Sauvie Island Farm and we'll definitely go back! The farm has TONS of crops and you pick everything! Pretty much anything you can think of, they have from veggies, corn, herbs, berries, peaches, apples, and all the flowers you can imagine.
They had the cutest sunflower field with a bunch of different sunflower varieties. Zinnias, cosmos, dahlias, peonies (obviously weren't blooming), marigolds, blue bells, etc were all blooming. Sauvie Island Farm has U-pick flowers too.
The girls and I picked some huge bouquets of sunflowers and zinnias. It's the cutest spot and there are so many other farms on the island to check out. The girls were pretty grumpy, so we didn't stay too long unfortunately.
see, they were grumps and not having any more pictures
