The Pope Farm Conservancy in Middleton is a beautiful park, formerly a farm owned by Art Pope.    Here is a map of the grounds.

There are other small garden plots within the park. The crops of Wisconsin are represented here.

 We were not here long since a storm was coming.  The sunflowers were beautiful!

The sunflower season is short so be sure to stop in when they are blooming! The last week of July is their Sunflower Days event. They love visitors any time of the year though and donations gratefully accepted!
