Sunflowers at Alvis Farms | Things to do in RVA

July 16, 2020

We try to get out of the house every morning. It’s a survival thing, honestly.

The morning can drag on with active little people who are easily bored : )

Covid has made getting finding safe, fun things to do more challenging, but I love that the Richmond area has tons of outdoor summer activities. If we are willing to brave the heat, we can always find ways to stay entertained.

I had never been to a sunflower farm before, but The West End mom instagram account recently featured Alvis Farms, and we decided to give it a try. They have a sunflower maze, a pick-your-own sunflower field, tons of photo ops, and pretty cool farm equipment that the kiddos can see.

We went with a couple of friends, arrived around 8:45am, and stayed for around an hour. We were definitely sweaty by the time we left, but it was a sweet time, and Nash especially loved hanging out with some pretty awesome tractors 🙂

The sunflower season is fairly short and ends today actually, but definitely put this on your “Things to do in RVA” checklist for next summer.


If you’d like to have me come along to photograph your family on an outing like this, I’d love to chat more about booking a documentary photo session! Click here to get in touch!
