You are in for a blooming lovely evening out at a Norfolk farm this summer as it is running a pick-your-own sunflower festival.

The event will take place fortnightly on three Fridays on July 29, August 12 and August 26, from 5pm until late, at Rookery Meadows in Great Ellingham, near Attleborough. 

It is owned by David Ewin and his sons Richard and Peter and this is the first time they have grown sunflowers.

It follows the successful launch of a pumpkin patch in 2021.

They also run Norfolk Veg Box, Wayland Free Range Eggs and a farm shop there.

There will be photo opportunities in the sunflower field and each person will get three sunflower stems to take home. 

Street food trucks will rotate at each event and include East Coast Pizza Company and The Bucket List. 

Enjoy all the fun of the farm this summer at Rookery Meadows.
