Visiting Buttonwood Farm Ice Creamery and Sunflower Fields

This past Monday my aunt and I took a trip up to Griswold, CT to visit Buttonwood Farm. If you are familiar with the area, it is just a bit more further north than the casinos. Not only does Buttonwood Farm make their own ice cream, and waffle cones, but they also have gorgeous sunflower fields!

Buttonwood Farm sells bouquets of sunflowers for $10 and all proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation of Connecticut. Not only are you getting beautiful, fresh cut flowers, but you are also helping out a great cause!

This year, their sunflowers are available from July 20-28, so if you haven’t made a trip to visit their farm yet, you should soon!

My aunt and I had such a fun time visiting the farm, and I cannot wait to come back next year and make it an annual trip.
