Sunflower Fields - Glebe Farm
A field full of yellow
Today we’ve been to the most beautiful sunflower field; Glebe Farm is located in the village of Lower Brailes near Shipston on Stour and is a family run farm.
This is the first year that they’ve done ‘Pick Your Own’ Sunflowers and wow, what a spectacle the field is. It only opened on Saturday so the sunflowers are looking incredible.
The set up is brilliant and felt very safe. There’s a big board with all the rules clearly stated and there’s also a hand sanitiser to use before entering the sunflowers. There is a one way system in operation around the field with a shorter route signposted part way round.
I don’t think that there’s a lot of difference in the routes as the field isn’t massive but we decided to take the longer route as it took you to a very majestic-looking oak tree; from here you get to see the whole field in all its glory with the church as a backdrop in the distance.
You need to take your own cutters to cut the sunflowers and we also took gardening gloves as the stems can be quite prickly; they are £5 for 6 stems or £2.50 for 3 and it’s cash only.
They do ask for donations if you’re only taking photos. It is cash only so make sure you take the correct change...the honesty box is sealed so there’s no way of getting any change.
If you are planning on visiting then we definitely advise wearing wellies as the field is very very sticky and muddy especially after the recent downpours.
I wouldn’t say that it’s pushchair friendly but we did see one being pushed around although the wheels were absolutely caked in mud.
We had a lovely hour wandering amongst the sunflowers and we even managed to dodge the rain until right at the end.
Keep an eye on their Facebook page for any updates as opening times could be changing.
We love that it’s a local family run farm that we’re able to support.
Glebe Farm is signposted in the village and is opposite The George pub on High Street.
The PYO is open every day 10am until 7pm. No booking required, just turn up.
