The owners of a UK sunflower field are asking their visitors to refrain from taking nude photos at their family-friendly farm.
Keep Your Clothes On, Please
Siblings Sam Wilson and Nette Petley, owners of Stoke Fruit Farm on Hayling Island, said they had to put up signs asking guests to refrain from public nudity after six incidents of naked photo shoots occurred since the sunflower field opened to the public last month — including three incidents in a single day.
Wilson and Petley said they don’t want to ruin anyone’s fun, but the nudity has recently become a problem.
The pair said visiting families have complained about their children witnessing incidents of nudity.
The farm maintains an expansive sunflower field that attracts tourists from around the world.
The family-owned farm allows visitors to take pictures but recently said it was running into issues with individuals taking naked pictures of themselves in the field.
“Reminder to all we are a family area, and please keep your clothes on in the sunflowers! We are having [an] increase of reports of naked photography taking place, and this must not happen during our public sessions, please,” the farm said in a Facebook post.
Sam Wilson and his sister Nette Petley run the farm that their grandfather set up. It comprises 350 acres, producing wheat, peas, potatoes, pumpkins, squash, sweetcorn, hay – and sunflowers.
There are about 50 acres filled with 2 million sunflowers, originally planted by Wilson and his then-fiancée.
