Sunflower trail at tuttle orchards
5717 N 300 W, Greenfield, IN 46140
Imagine walking through a field of sunflowers on a gorgeous sunny day. It's practically a glimpse into heaven, yet it's simply just a drive away in your local area. It only costs $5 per person for children and adults. You also get to take one sunflower of your choosing with you for free. Think of it as one of indy's most unique summer pastimes.

Tuttle Orchards Cafe & Farm Store
Once the allure of the sunflowers wear off and your body begins to grow tired from the sun's heat, stop by the cafe just across the street from the trail. It's nothing spectacular, but it's the perfect place (and only place) to grab an apple cider slush to cool off. Click here to check out the menu. There's also a farm store that carries local products. I love drinking ginger tea with lemon and honey, so I couldn't resist purchasing a jar of pure honey.
Did somebody say photo shoot?!
For all my photogenic sweeties out there, this is an occasion that you can turn into a photoshoot. I was there for at least two hours of the day and the trail was never overwhelmingly busy. It's a slow-paced atmosphere that's relaxing and a great fit for a summer shoot. With this in mind, dress up! Put on your best summer slay and enjoy the trail with family, friends, or a photographer. There's also an adorable red barn towards the entrance of the trail that is the ultimate scenic backdrop.
The most impressive part about this trail is that it's truly an escape. The beauty of God's creation pulls you in and reminds you just how sweet life is. This is a space that will force you to be present and simply enjoy.*
All in all, stay beYOUtiful, keep life sweet, and never stop feeding your soul. -xo
*If you're allergic to bee stings, I would NOT recommend participating in this activity. There are bees everywhere. They are thoroughly more interested in the flowers than you, but it's probably best to air on the side of caution and sit this one out.
