I know this post is a bit late and in all honestly, I wanted to post it right after I visited the Bogle Seeds Sunflower Farm. But I’ve had a bit of a crazy month (read this post) and have just gotten back into blogging regularly. I still wanted to talk about my Bogle Seeds Sunflower Farm experience even though the sunflower season is over.
The Bogle Seeds Sunflower Farm
The Bogle Seeds Sunflower Farm is a family owned farm located in Hamilton. They are the largest continuous growers of sunflowers in Ontario with 75 acres of sunflowers that blooms and opens to the public for viewing every 3 years. And boy, is it a sight to be seen! The sunflowers are in bloom for 2 weeks in the year before they start to die. The beautiful yellow colour seen over the 75 acres just makes you smile.
This year, the Bogle Seeds Sunflower Farm was open to the public for viewing and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to go. I went on the fourth day the farm was open and there were a decent number of visitors. It was so nice to just walk around, talk to people, take some pictures and enjoy the sunflowers. Gursheel and I had an amazing time.
Bogle Seeds in the News
However, a few days later on the weekend, Bogle Seeds Sunflower Farm became super popular and hundred of people came to see the sunflowers. So much so, that some people were not even paying the super low entrance fee and just walking into the farm. Others were walking all over the sunflowers to get that beautiful Instagram shot. These sunflowers are the livelihood of this family farm where they harvest the sunflower seeds and sell them on the farm. It became so bad that the family had to shut down the viewing and call the police! You can read more about what happened on this article and why the farm owners have now said that they are closed forever!
Although I’m super sad that this happened, I’m sure many more people were respectful of the sunflowers and just wanted to appreciate their beauty. So, although it looks like Bogle Seeds won’t be opening for public viewing in the future, Davis Feed & Farm Supply is open with their 40 acres of sunflowers!
When I posted pictures from the Bogle Seed Sunflower Farm on my Instagram, a lot of you asked where I got my pants from. Well, they are from Simon’s although I am unable to find them online or in stores. However, I’ve linked to some of my favorite printed and floral pants below!
