The field is located on Whitehall Farm, privately owned by Dave and Sharen Neuhardt, who said in a previous interview that they plant the flowers and open it up to the public “just to make people smile.” The field also serves as a reminder of the mission of land trusts, which is to preserve the natural environment by putting permanent land easements on qualifying properties.


When visiting the field, guests should park in the grassy lot down the gravel lane and not on U.S. Route 68. Visitors are welcomed to paint, draw or take photos of the sunflowers. However, the Neurhardts ask that no individuals solicit commercial photography or utilize the field for other commercial purposes.
