Just what we’ve all been waiting for – a chance to capture the sun


Stroud farmer Ellie Dangerfield was disappointed when her sunflowers hadn’t flourished as expected in the last week of August – and the munching of the local deer hadn’t helped. 

Then came September’s unseasonal sunshine and the spirit of Vincent Van Gough was resurrected at Wick Street Farm.

Like many farms, besides their usual beef and sheep enterprise, they’ve had to diversify. This Saturday, September 9th, the sunflower patch will be open for visitors to pick their own flowers, 10am-5pm.

Refreshments will be available at the Wagon in the Wild Cafe, including home-made cream teas (if booked in advance through the website) along with Jim’s Scotch Eggs.

Dogs on leads are welcome and, weather permitting, you can meet the donkeys too. There will also be an area where children can draw the flowers. An entrance fee applies.
