Sunflowers

SunflowersEnjoy the bloom of sunflowers in and around our farm – acres and acres of Black-Oil Sunflowers! The black oil seeds 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. Black-oil sunflower seeds also attract a greater variety of bird species that use of other seeds.
