Buttonwood Farm is in the middle of nowhere Connecticut, but if you happen to be in Connecticut during sunflower season this is a must see. Each year the farm plants 10 acres of sunflowers and each July during flowering season the yellow of the flowers just glows. Stop at the Buttonwood Farm to take photos, buy ice-cream (including sunflower seed flavor!), and purchase sunflowers. All proceeds from sunflower purchases go to the Make a Wish Foundation.
