Sopa Fairview Farm

Nothing says summertime more than a field of gorgeous sunflowers. Explore the expansive field of flowers at Sopa Fairview Farm where they allow the public to come and meander through the field and take pictures. They even offer the perfect "selfie spot" where you can pull in and snap a few quick shots!  

The farm is currently in its 4th generation of ownership as it was started back in 1893. Ever wondered what they do with the sunflowers after their season ends? They actually use them to make sunflower oil and it's available for purchase at the farm. 

What to Expect

WHERE TO FIND IT?

While Sopa Fairview Farm itself is located at 8290 Old Amish Rd, Amherst, WI 54406, the sunflower field moves each year - but still around the same area. Wander on Old Amish Road near the farm and you'll be sure to find the field. There is parking available at pull-off spaces beside the road. 

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME?

While it depends on the weather conditions each year, usually the peak bloom for sunflowers is the end of July through early August. They don't last long so be sure to take advantage of the short window! For 2021, they are running a bit behind schedule due to later than normal planting.

Watch for updates from Sopa Fairview Farms for when to head to the field.

IT'S FREE

While admission to the field is free and you are able to enjoy the picturesque field without paying a penny - consider bringing along some cash to leave behind in the donation buckets for the family farm as a thank you.

Arnold's Strawberries

Another can't miss sunflower field is at Arnold's Strawberries in Rudolph, WI. New to the farm this year, they added a sunflower patch in honor of two passed family members. The field will be open to the public for self-service pictures and sunflower picking daily, from 11 am to sunset (starting August 11th). 

What to Expect

WHERE TO FIND IT?

The sunflower field is located at the farm itself, at 343 CR-PP Rudolph, WI 54475. They ask that people use their gravel parking lot and walk the grass aisles to the sunflower fields. 

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME?

Starting August 11th at 11 am, the field will be open to the public and is in full bloom. They estimate that the field will be in bloom for about 3 weeks from then. 

Bring your own tools to cut the flowers as the field is strictly self-serve. 
WHAT DOES IT COST?

While the field is open to the public, they are asking for either a small cash donation or pet supply donation to be made to the farm. All proceeds will be split evenly between the Wood County and Portage County Humane Societies.
