The farm advises people to bring their own cutters and to wear suitable footwear as the sunflower picking area is on uneven ground.

They are open seven days a week from 10am to 7pm from tomorrow Saturday August 8 while the flowers last.

Glebe Farm is sign posted in the village near the George pub in the High St in Lower Brailes.
