Sunflowers in Andrews' Scenic Acres

Sunflower Kingdom has bloomed in Milton, Ontario and the tractor ride brings visitors to a field of 150,000 sunflowers. Andrews Scenic Acres' is located on 10th Sideroad, just east of Highway 25 and minutes north of Highway 401 the flowers are accessed by a tractor ride past the orchards, berries and dahlia fields and into the back 40 and open until September 2, 2019.

Cost of entry into Andrew's is $10 per person ($5 on weekdays), with an extra $5 for access to the sunflower fields (you are given a wristband to get on the tractor). Tractors run every 40 minutes or so and pick you up just inside the entrance and let you off right in the heart of the sunflowers. Their rules are simple - do not pick the sunflowers and stay on the paths. Parking is free and you can wander the grounds watching the free range chickens, play with the animals at the petting zoo and check out the vintages at their winery - Scotch Block Winery. Hours of operation are 10am-5pm weekdays, 10am-6pm weekends and on Labour Day Monday open 10am-6pm.

There are a number of photo stations and look out points adjacent to the fields of 8 acres of sunflowers. The flowers are 3 to 12 feet tall and seem to be single handily feeding the entire provincial population of honey bees that are content to leave you alone as you take photos. The growing sunflowers face in one direction which is pretty cool and worth the money.
