This huge Wisconsin sunflower patch is studded with four million sunflowers spread out over several fields, so come prepared with clippers and a jar (or buy scissors and grab a free plastic souvenir cup on site) to prepare for a long day of roaming and picking. Visitors can also explore sunflower mazes and children get a free shaved ice treat with their ticket.
