NOW: Thistleberry Farm sunflower field open for the fall

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Wednesday is the official end to summer! Fall is on the way, and apple orchards, pumpkin patches, and cider mills are gearing up for visitors excited to celebrate the new season.

Thistleberry Farm in South Bend has already opened its gates to the public with pumpkins, a corn maze, and many other items and activities available. One of these attractions, the sunflower field, opened this past weekend with their sunflowers in full bloom.

Visitors can walk the rows of flowers for an $8 admission fee, with clippers available for picking your own sunflowers (for an additional cost) to take home. There are also multiple props set up throughout the field for photo opportunities.

You may want to bring shoes that you're okay with getting a little dirty and a jacket if you're planning a visit later in the week. Temperatures will be cooling down into the 60's through the end of the work week with low 70's throughout the weekend.

This week is expected to be the best for anyone trying to snap a picture with the blooms. The fields will stay open as long as the sunflowers are still in bloom, which the farm estimates to be in early October.

If you'd like to learn more about the sunflower field or the farm, you can find that information on their website.
