Deputies say adventurous tourists are taking their selfies too far in Solano County.
Farmers said their sunflower fields near Dixon are being treated like parks and they’re losing crops. They said people are doing photo shoots and taking engagement pictures with props. Some people are even having picnics, ignoring the no trespassing signs.
One woman taking selfies Tuesday in a field near Curry Road described the sunflower fields as an “amazing landscape.”
Joanna Ongsarte, visiting from Elk Grove said: “We love sunflowers.”
But farmers said this love is literally going too far. Too far into their fields.
“They’re having picnics, wine and cheese right there in the corner and I’m going ‘Really?’” said Craig Ginos, a sunflower farmer.
