Albuquerque, New Mexico (KRQE) – If you’re looking for a fun event to take your family out of the house on a holiday weekend, consider sunflower hunting. Due to the early harvest, the Big Gym Farm near Rio Grande and Montagno opens sunflower fields for guests to choose their bouquets.
“When you come in and check in, you’ll see some instructions, such as how to do it and where to put the clips. Next, we’ll provide you with a clipper to cut the stems of the flowers. You go out and explore. There are livestock and a playground for kids, so you can hang out and when you’re done, you can put it in a jar of water and take it home, “says Chantelle Wagner of Big Jim Farms.
The farm is open daily from 8 am to 6 pm. There will also be green chilies, pumpkins and other specialty flower picking events later in the season.
