Explore five acres of sunflowers at the newly reopened Sunflower Trail at Eckert Farms in Belleville. In addition to the Sunflower Trail, you'll have access to the peach orchard and blackberries. This year, the sunflowers are of the shorter variety, making them ideal for pictures!
In addition the sunflowers, you can take part in the Field of Hope Project, a campaign to encourage guests to not only post photos of the sunflowers, but to share messages of hope for the community. Signs will be provided with different inspirational messages that you can hold up while getting your photos taken in the sunflower field. Hours vary each day, but are generally 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursdays and Sundays, and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Admission to the Sunflower Trail is $3 per person and access passes are available at eckerts.com. Children under age 2 are free.
