The fields are owned by Todd and Kim Sheridan and can be found about six miles west of Autaugaville at the intersection of Autauga County Road 33 and Highway 14. At approximately eighty miles from Birmingham, expect your drive to take about an hour and thirty minutes.
The Autaugaville sunflower fields have been extremely popular. Photos of the golden flowers have been popping up on social media for the last few years. The fields are FREE TO VISIT! Follow them on Facebook here to catch new updates on visiting.
A concession stand sells cold drinks, tee-shirt, watermelon, and kettle corn. There are also buckets of sunflowers for sale.
Cooler morning hours are best for seeing and photographing the flowers as the hot temps and dry conditions can wilt them. Since we’ve had a good amount of rain this summer, this should be an optimal time for checking them out.
The owners ask that NO PETS be brought on the premises and that visitors watch where they walk. The entire area is open for scouting out the best picture opportunities.
