RISE & BLOOM
Join us for breakfast and a view of the sunflowers in the early part of the day.We’ll have a breakfast of Hardy Coffee Co. coffee, a donut or muffin, and a fruit cup waiting for you! Then we’ll drive you up to the Sunflowers so you can watch them “wake up” to the sun and face the day. After you’ve finished you’re meal, fill up your Breakfast Bucket with Sunflowers to take home.
On the day of the release, we’ll have you meet us on the Farm a half hour before the event so we can take you out to the Sunflower Fields in our hayrack. Once there, we’ll hand over your Painted Lady Butterfly. Then we’ll release them together into the splendor of the Sunflowers!
