Fresh Flower Farm
The family-owned and -operated Fresh Flower Farm in Auburn is currently open to the public for the small price of $10 for admission, with no end date in sight. The fields feature an array of sunflower breeds, in addition to lilies, dahlias and many other flower variations. Each flower field follows a path that leads into another flower bunch, most fields shaping themselves into hearts and fun shapes. The sunflowers stand tall and make for the perfect background for portraits or photos with loved ones. The Farm features a cozy shop for guests who would like to purchase freshly made bundles and floral arrangements.
