Events Sunflower House at Billings Farm
The Annual Sunflower House at Billings Farm & Museum invites you to stroll through hallways formed by over 100 varieties of sunflowers and peruse the rooms of tall stalks with large blooms above you. There are thousands of sunflowers ranging from 18 inches to 14 feet in height, which bloom at different times in the 20,000 square foot display. In addition to its beauty, the Sunflower House serves as a food source for birds, bees, and butterflies.
This maze-like display of nature's shining faces is a truly unique experience crafted by the Woodstock Inn & Resort's Master Gardener Benjamin Pauly.
