Ah the later days of August, you draw us in with your warm days and cooler nights. This is a truly special time of year on Martha’s Vineyard. To add to the magic of the season, be sure to visit The FARM Institute for Pick Your Own Sun Flowers.
Now in its third year, Pick Your Own Sunflowers has become a Summer tradition not to miss. This year, The Farm Institute’s sunflower field has a new home on the farm, and the sunflowers seem more plentiful than ever!
