SANBORN, N.Y. (WKBW) — The owners of Sunflowers of Sanborn say the Niagara County Sheriff's Office had to be called Saturday night due to unruly patrons after weather caused a closure of the fields.

In a Facebook post Saturday morning the owners stated:

"We are deeply devastated that we had to experience such disrespect at our fields yesterday that we put our hearts and soul into to make it a great family attraction for everyone to enjoy."

The owners say after weather caused the closure due to unsafe grounds, people began jumping the fence, stealing sunflowers, breaking the chain off their exit and entering the the property which ultimately caused the call to the sheriff's office.

"We are all volunteers here at the Sunflowers of Sanborn and it breaks our heart knowing all of our hard work to try and keep the grounds FREE to enter is being taking advantage of when we close our gates."
