Sunflower Tours have ended! Thanks for a great season.

Our 2019 season has come to an end. We’re looking forward to 2020!

Donaldson Farms is pleased to offer fun and picturesque tours of acres of Black-Oil Sunflowers that are planted throughout our farm during the summer and fall! The black oil seeds of the sunflower have very thin shells, easy for virtually all seed-eating birds to crack open, and the kernels within have a high fat content, extremely valuable for birds, especially as food during migration and winter. They also attract more of a variety of bird species than use of other seeds. Come enjoy the bloom of acres and acres of sunflowers in and around our farm!

Our educational and fun tours include:

  • Hayride with optimum photo locations – at just the right time of day – to capture these gorgeous, happy flowers at their best!
  • Ample time to enjoy and photograph the sunflowers
  • Farm-fresh fruit & water provided during tour
  • Pollinator Safari Hunt for kids. How many pollinating insects can you find?
  • Sunflowers are available for purchase: $3.00 each.

2018 Corn Maze

This year’s theme corn maze theme is “Brighten Someone’s Day!” Donaldson Farms is pleased to share that $1 from every entry into our corn maze this season will be donated to Tomorrows Children’s Fund! Our family and staff have selected this caring and encouraging organization as the inspiration of this year’s theme in honor and support of so many friends and local families that have had their children hospitalized, in treatment and battling many illnesses.

We are so excited to announce that Anya L. of Chester, NJ is our 2018 Corn Maze Design Contest winner! This Fall season her inspiring artwork will be incorporated into our nine acre corn maze which will spotlight the importance of ‘Tomorrows Children’s Fund’ (TCF).

It was very difficult for our farm family to select the winning entry – we received so many creative and uplifting drawings! Anya’s design and story very much represented the theme of ‘Brightens Someone’s Day!’ The description that accompanied Anya’s entry read “This is Anya with a sunflower behind her (just like the ones she saw in your field last summer). She is holding the word hope and there is a butterfly. The butterfly was the theme we used during her transplant to symbolize the metamorphosis Anya’s body was undergoing. The H in hope connects to the hand for an early exit.”
