On the corner of Route 332 and Collett Road West in Farmington you will see a beautiful sunflower field. The field was established by Harry Wells, Managing Vice President of American Equipment in 2015. The 12 acres of land uses Black Russian Sunflowers because of the type of soil that in the area. The sunflowers grow approximately six feet tall but there are some flowers that are easily double that height! The number of flowers there has also helped expand the bee community as well. You will see them buzzing around and it's a very vibrant setting! The reason the corner was established was to promote the beauty of Farmington as you enter or exit the Thruway. Turn onto Collett Road and there is a parking lot to park your vehicle. Stop by soon so you don't miss the wonder of this beautiful corner!
