Sunflower Week once again returns to Roves Farm Visitor Centre. This popular theme wraps up the school holidays, running from Saturday 21 August until Sunday 5 September.
The Free Tractor Rides take visitors around the farm to see the sunflowers growing in the wild bird cover. However, Roves Farm has one special sunflower, which will be the centre of attention, as splashes of magical water make her grow.
Rupert Burr, owner of Roves Farm says ‘Sunflower Week has always been one of our most popular themes and gives us a chance to explain to adults and children how farmers put a lot of effort into providing food and habitats for the abundance of wildlife on their farms.’
During craft sessions, visitors are invited to snip, stick and decorate their very own sunflowers to take home.
Roves Farm is dedicated to farming for the wildlife, with wild flower meadows and field margins and wild bird cover strips in many of its field. Typical plants include maize, kale, quinoa and sunflowers, all of which provide vital food to nourish British wild birds.
Additional activities include Meet and Feed a wide range of farm animals, Animal Racing, Giant Bale Stack, 2 Acre Willow Maze, along with Indoor and Outdoor Adventure Play Areas.
Roves Farm Visitor Centre is open daily, 10.30am – 5.00pm, throughout the summer holidays.
