Sunflower fields in Scotland
At the weekend I finally got to visit some sunflower fields! This is something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time. I remember searching for “sunflower fields in Scotland” on Google many a time but I eventually accepted that this wasn’t a thing. That was, until Cairnie Fruit Farm posted a picture of their sunflower fields on Facebook.
My friend and I headed there the next day because we were so bloody excited. Whilst the fields were EXTREMELY beautiful, I can’t lie- it wasn’t quite Tuscany. The sunflowers were still really small. I guess we were a bit early for them but they were pretty none-the-less. We picked a good bunch and paid a small fee (£3 for 12) for them before leaving the field.
Pick your own at Cairnie Fruit Farm
I then decided I also wanted to pick some berries. ‘Cause why not. Picking your own fruit from a farm is so much cooler than going to the supermarket. We walked around the raspberry bushes and tasted a few (hundreds) then I got a little basket to fill up with strawberries which are my favourite. As I was walking around the patch I thought about how cool it would be to have my own fruit farm. Imagine going to get dinner every night and just eating the garden. Goals.
Next time I go searching for sunflowers I think I’ll hold off a bit. Then I’ll get to see them fully grown. It was a nice little day out though. It’s not something you get to do every day so it was definitely a lot of fun. Plus, strawberries.
If you’ve missed your chance to see the sunflowers, don’t fret. Sunflower season is late summer/early fall but Cairnie Fruit Farm has all sorts going on all year round, from pumpkin patches and horses to corn mazes and trampolines. It’s a great day out for little kids and big kids (like me), and is very reasonably priced. Check out their website for more information.
