Florida Sunflower Farm You Need To Visit With Your Kids
Sledd’s U-Pick Sunflower Farm
The one thing I love about Instagram is that you can find some really amazing places to visit. I appreciate it when people tag the location to the photo. A lot of times you can use this information to plan some really fun outings. Recently my son has been obsessed with sunflowers. We even planted a few sunflowers of our own that he loves so much.
One night I was mindlessly scrolling through Instagram and one of my fellow blogger friends posted a picture surrounded by sunflowers. I immediately stopped what I was doing and sent her a direct message. I asked her where did she take her picture and she said Sledd’s U-Pick Farm.
Then I asked if they had a website so that I can get the hours of operation. Unfortunately, they do not have a website but they do have a Facebook Page.
On the Facebook Page, they share the hours of operation and any updates. I sent Sledd’s U-Pick Farm a message to make sure that I had the correct address. After I had all the necessary information, I mapped out our trip. Since the sunflower farm is located in Mims, Florida, it was going to take us about 2 hours to get there.
Yall know how it can be with kids, so I had to plan strategically. I really wanted this to be a surprise trip for Carson. He understood that sunflowers can grow to be really tall, but I wanted him to see it first hand. I am all about creating memories with my kids, but more importantly, having them experience things as well.
When we arrived at Sledd’s U-Pick Farm C’s face lit up with pure joy! He could wait to jump out of the car to see the sunflowers up close and personal. Now, at the time we visited the sunflower farm, the love bugs in Florida were in FULL effect! They were everywhere! Someone who was with us was not having it.
Mommy’s little diva.
Once we paid our admission, we are all smiles. Miss M was not having all of the exploration and fresh air. Once we were in the sunflower maze, there were bees and love bugs. M is not a bug-loving little girl and once inside the maze she was ready to go! C and I had to beg her to cooperate…she was cutting up. Crying and screaming she was ready to go home. Unfortunately, our time at the sunflower farm was cut short due to M’s nature breakdown.
I am already planning our next visit to Sledd’s next year. C and I made a deal that we would return and hopefully, M will be up for it next time. I would highly recommend that you add this sunflower farm to your family bucket list.
