Coppal House Farm
A Family Tradition for Every Season
This event takes place in our farm fields. The roads to get to those fields are packed dirt, gravel or grass. There is an extensive amount of walking required to visit the sunflower fields. Wheelchairs, scooters, etc are welcome in the field, but we cannot guarantee accessibility to the whole field. There will be no transportation offered to visitors by farm staff to access the farm or fields.
If your mobility is limited, we encourage you to visit the farm on Tuesday August 8th, 2023 for our Limited Mobility Day. Due to heavy pedestrian traffic at this event, we cannot allow vehicles to drive to the tent or fields on any other day.
*In the past we have offered golf cart rides to those with mobility issues. That cart will not be available this year. Please plan accordingly.
Limited Mobility Day
Due to logistics, we have moved this event to Tuesday August 8, 2023 during our variety garden open dates.

Yes, for the most part it is. Our paths in the sunflower field are certainly wide enough to allow wheelchairs through, but you would need assistance in pushing it.
