Pick your own sunflowers at this insta-worthy flower farm in January

Atkins Farm, in the Adelaide Hills, is preparing for another busy sunflower season, where you can get up-close-and-personal with these stunning flowers.

As summer approaches, there’s nothing quite like the sight of sunflowers swaying under the warm sun.

For me, sunflowers transport me back to my childhood, when they would line the streets of our neighbourhood. It added a vibrance to the community; an energy that was drawn from the idyllic sea of yellow.

Atkins Farm, in the Adelaide Hills, is preparing for another busy sunflower season, where you can get up-close-and-personal with these stunning flowers. The weather this growing season has been kind with the extra rain giving the sunflowers an extra boost.

Atkins Farm’s sunflower venture began as a labor of love, driven by their passion for gardening. In 2022, they opened their farm to the public, inviting flower enthusiasts to “pick your own sunflowers.” What started as a small idea soon blossomed into a community event, attracting thousands of sunflower admirers.

Visitors to Atkins Farm will have the unique opportunity to pick their own sunflowers, creating beautiful floral arrangements and taking home a piece of the vibrant Adelaide Hills.

Each picking session lasts 30 minutes, and visitors are encouraged to bring their own snips or secateurs and a bucket to carry their sunny treasures. All visitors need to purchase tickets which will be available via our website once released. Newsletter subscribers get first access to tickets.

Atkins Farm, located in Meadows, just 50 minutes from Adelaide, has been in the same family for three generations, initially operating as a sheep and potato farm.

The team are currently waiting for a few more sunny days to help the blooms along. They anticipate that tickets will be released from next week, from Monday 8th January, once the fields have enough sunflowers for picking. 

You can find Atkins Farm at Battunga Road, Meadows. For more information, and for the official opening time, click here
