A Date With Sunflowers

Sunflowers and Pumpkins and Apples, oh my! Fall is upon us here in New England and that calls for the basic Fall rituals. While most millennial's flock to Starbucks for their Pumpkin Spice Lattes, my group of friends and I headed up north to take some Instagram worthy fall photos.

Tendercrop Farm at the Red Barn in Dover, NH was much more fun than we had expected. Not only did they have rows upon rows of sunflowers, but they also had local artisans, food vendors, a huge red barn with produce from local farms and a gigantic corn maze. The day was raining on and off, but that didn't stop the adventure! While it rained, we took cover under a huge tent and played with some Golden Retriever puppies. As soon as the rain stopped and the sun broke through the clouds, we were off to the fields to get those pictures!

Let me tell you, the pictures we did get. With all the varieties of sunflowers they provided, we had no problem finding ones that spoke to each of our personalities. After the photos were taken, much food and local cider were consumed. All of this gave us plenty of energy to brave the corn maze. I would like to tell you we came out successful, but in all-out honesty, we had to find a "short-cut" and exit the maze early before we were driven into madness.

Tendercrop Farms over exceeded our expectations in the best way. Not only did we get our perfect pictures, but we also made some damn good memories. Tendercrop Farm at the Red Barn is open all through the fall and even into January with events such as costume contests and bonfires. Check out their website for dates and times!
