"I have been blessed to be a vendor here for 3 years now. It is one of the most organized and amazing festivals I do with my little business. It is truly one of the happiest places in Virginia. That has so much to do with the family who owns this farm as well as the magic of the sunflowers. The growth most of us have seen as vendors has been a direct result of the growth and vision of Candace and family. I'm not sure they will ever have a true understanding how many lives they have changed when they sowed those first seeds several years ago. This year brought so much uncertainty for all small family owned businesses, farmers, artists and makers alike. But the farm forged on convinced the world needed this now more than ever. And we like faithful followers, trudged forward as well, not knowing what to expect. As usual the family, the farm and flowers were right...our community needed this!! For me I will be forever changed and forever grateful for being a small part of such and amazing place. There may be other sunflower festivals but I am certain they will never be able to pull off with grace and class an event as amazing as Beaver Dam Farms does!"
