Photography

We welcome and encourage everyone in our community to use our stunning farmland and alluring crops for their casual photography, selfies, private social media and blogging use during our normal business hours. For those wishing to use our farm for business or commercial use in any capacity, please contact us to schedule a photo shoot, photography fees will apply.

What is considered business and commercial photography?

Any photographer, model, individual or business that wishes to use Southern Hill Farms property, crops, buildings or farm equipment as the backdrop of their photographs for financial and business gains. Examples would be photographers using our sunflower fields as a backdrop for family photography sessions, businesses recruiting models to pose in the blueberry fields for promotional images, and clients wishing to use pictures of the farm for commercial imagery purposes, just to name a few.

What crops are available for photography and when?

During the months of March, April and May we have blueberries, peaches, sunflowers and zinnias. In October we have corn, sunflowers and zinnias. The blueberry bushes and peach trees are available for photography in the fall but are not bearing any fruit.

Do you offer photo shoots during non-business hours?

We offer a limited number of sunrise and sunset photography sessions seasonally, in the spring and fall, which are subject to photography fees. Please check the calendar below for available dates and times.
