A Canadian farm offers beautiful sunflowers has reportedly put an end to photo-seeking visitors for the rest of the season as a result of a huge crowd in the weekends.

Bogle Seeds in Hamilton, Ontario on Saturday credited the “overwhelming prove” as the reason for the closure of the area.

“Due to the overwhelming turn out today, the Hamilton Police were called and they have closed with our sunflower viewing/shooting for the season,” the farm wrote on Facebook.

“There will be no more sunflower view/shooting allowed.”

The scene near the farm at the weekend was described as a “flash mob” consisting of more than 7,000 cars, owner Barry Bogle said, according to CTV Kitchener.

“People came from all corners of our farm. And just inundating our farm properties, so we had no control,” he said.

And with the hustle and bustle of the visitors, a number of the flowers were reportedly damaged in the process.

“There were quite a few sunflowers that I saw that were damaged, which were broken and lying on the floor,” visitor Jill Gowland told the outlet.

While a social media-worthy photo-shoot can no longer be in the cards, the farm, the website said that they remain open for the company to sell bird seed and other products.
