We invite everyone in Cheshire and the surrounding areas to come enjoy a day filled with sunflowers. There will be parking available along with help cutting your own sunflowers if you would like to venture into the field. Pre-cut bunches will also be available for those who would just like to enjoy some sunflowers. There is no minimum or maximum on sunflower purchases and we also invite people to come stop by and learn about our foundation and its mission.


 “We are pleased to share the beautiful sunflowers grown by The Real Farmer Phil with our neighbors and friends. We hope that spreading a little sunshine along with helping those in our community who struggle with mental health will be great closure to a wonderful Connecticut summer ”Andrea Holsworth (Connie’s Sister), Board Member of Connie J Klanica Foundation


The event is open to the public and all are welcome to come cut your own or purchase pre-cut sunflowers. An ice cream truck, face painter, and Touch a Tractor will be available for all ages. Other CJK items will be present for purchase along with information about the foundation. Credit card or cash will be accepted.


All proceeds from You Are My Sunshine support the CJK Foundation’s mission of helping families impacted by depression and mental illness by providing assistance for individuals going for treatment and their caretakers as well as funding mental health research. The CJK Foundation hopes to transform Awareness into Wellbeing and help our surrounding community know the resources available to them when dealing with mental health.
