Sunflower Field Sundown
A view of a sunflower field in New Jersey as a pale sun is setting behind the mountain horizon. Taken at Donaldson Farms in Hackettstown N.J. where the sundlower fields are grown as part of the New Jersey Audubon S.A.V.E. program. The sunflower crop produces black-oil sunflower seeds for local bird food purchase and also sunflower oil. New Jersey farmers who participate in the program helps to reduce the carbon footprint in New Jersey by making locally grown products, rather than importing them from the midwest and also helps to preserve habitat grasslands around the farms for birds, polllinators and other native, wild creatures.
