The most well known sunflower field in the Chattanooga area is Smith Perry Berry Farm. Thousands of people flock to this field every July for beautiful flowers and stunning pictures. They sell shirts every year, offer photo opportunities with classic cars, and incorporate all kinds of fun activities for your family to enjoy. You can check their Facebook page and website for updates on the sunflowers, picking/picture times, and inclement weather announcements.

If you are up for a drive, Fausett Farms in Dawsonville is a great option. They grow their flowers later in the season, so you can enjoy these beauties in September. With its tucked-away location, it’s a hidden spot not many Chattanooga natives know about.

It is already open for the season.
