Beautiful Sunflower Fields In Long Island, New York
If you landed on this page in search of sunflower fields you can visit in New York, you have come to the right place! Who knew you could find sunflower fields right outside NYC on Long Island? Living in New York I had always seen giant sunflowers in peoples yards, but never a full field or maze until recently. In this post, I’m sharing my favorite sunflower fields in Long Island, NY!

Best Time To See Sunflowers in Long Island, New York
To have the best opportunity of seeing sunflowers, the best time to visit is towards mid- July to August. Even then, it’s still best to check with the farm directly to make sure their sunflower fields have bloomed because the weather is different every year.
Sunflowers on Long Island can bloom in early June as well as late going past October!
Sunflower Fields at Waterdrinker Farm
*** Waterdrinker still has sunflowers as of 10/24/2020***
The Waterdrinker Farm not only has beautiful sunflower fields, but also has tulips in the spring, wildflowers, and more!
If I am being honest, Water Drinker is my favorite farm on Long Island to see sunflowers thus far, so if you can only visit one, consider visiting here.
Their sunflower fields are free to visit and you can even cut your own sunflowers to take home at $2 per stem! It’s such a great deal!
They are now even offering sunset visits in their fields!
The Farm offers a cute shop that includes additional flowers and local produce to take home. They also have roasted corn (which is delicious) along with other quick snacks to enjoy in their outdoor seating.

The farm is family-friendly with hayrides and farm animals. They hold seasonal events for Spring (Tulips), Summer (sunflowers), Fall (Pumpkin Picking), and Winter (Christmas Trees)!
Their hours are Monday – Friday: 10 am-6 pm and Saturday – Sunday: 9 am-6 pm, but you can always check their website or call ahead before visiting! They are starting to do sunsets too!
They also provide a lot of information on their Facebook page with upcoming events!
From NYC, it takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes to get to the Waterdrinker, but totally worth it.

Manor Farm Sunflower Maze
The Manor Farm is a cute little farm located in Huntington, Long Island. They actually have a sunflower maze as opposed to an actual field, but it is such a cool place! IMO, it’s really a hidden gem among places you can visit.
With dozens of different types of sunflowers, you can make your way through their maze. It is free to visit and walk through the maze with a donation box. They also run different types of events throughout the year you can check out.
This field is the closest to NYC. It’s just about 1 hour away with no traffic.
Address: 210 Manor Rd Huntington, New York 11743
To keep updated with their latest blooms, check their Facebook page where they leave updates on their sunflowers!
Pindar Vineyard and Sunflower fields
Before telling you about Pindar Vineyard, I first must say I have never personally been here myself so I can’t attest to how amazing or not the sunflower fields are.
However, if there are some sunflower fields and wine/vineyards to frolic around, it can’t be a terrible place!
After looking at reviews and photos, I felt safe adding them to the list, until I can personally check them out myself!
I would just make sure to call ahead to see if the sunflowers are still there! You can also check their Instagram below for updates on their sunflower patches and wine!

How to Get to Long Island Sunflower Fields
The best way to visit the sunflower fields in Long Island is by car. Actually visiting almost anywhere on Long Island is best by car. While Long Island does have public transportation, it is way more limited. If you attempted public transportation, you would still likely have to take an Uber after.
