FROM THEIR WEBSITE:
Since 2004 our Sunflowers For Wishes fundraisers for Make-A-Wish Foundation of Connecticut have been a huge success.
It has run for ten days in each of the last years, and we have been able to raise a total of over $305,050.
We’d like to thank each of you who visited our farm and made a donation during this event.
