Jaquish Farms and its gorgeous sunflower fields and maze are a staple summertime favorite in the area. The attraction along Highway 85 near Eau Claire is also known for raising money for nonprofit organizations. As Jaquish Farms did last year, this season’s profits will go to Joshua’s Camp, a charity that runs a camp for families who have children impacted by cancer.
Owner Don Jaquish’s late wife, Babbette, passed away in 2014 from multiple myeloma. Jaquish planted the popular, vast field of sunflowers in honor of Babbette, whose favorite flowers were sunflowers.
Folks will have one final chance to peruse this year’s maze and sunflower field, on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 2-3, from 11am-6pm. Admission is $7/person or $25/carload.
