Second Mountain Sunflowers Are in Bloom Near Orwigsburg

If you are a sunflower enthusiast or just want something different to do we found a little gem right here in Schuylkill County.

Second Mountain Sunflowers is a family farm owned by Kenny Smith and is located at 324 Second Mountain Road in Orwigsburg PA.

The Sunflower fields at Second Mountain are open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00am-8:00pm. 

Smith plants his crops strategically so that the fields will open over the next several weekends.

Parking and Admission is free and if you would like to cut your own bag of sunflowers it is $5.00 but bring your own cutters.  The proceeds of all sales go to next year's planting.

Leiby's Carriage Service is also giving rides through the fields that are currently in bloom from 3:00pm-8:00pm.  Ride are $5.00 per person and children under 5 are free.

Drinks, BBQ sandwiches, hot dogs and snacks are for sale as well.

Any professional photographers who would like to schedule private sessions during the week are encouraged to message Second Mountain Sunflowers Facebook page.

Dogs are also welcome as long as they are friendly and on a leash.  Your dog can also ride the tractor ride or the horse and carriage ride as long as they don't scare the horses.

Leiby's Carriage Services are available for weddings, parades, parties, proms, hay rides, sleigh rides, community events and all special occasions. 

You can follow them on their Facebook page for events and updates, They also offer horse drawn sleigh rides in the winter!
