Kansas is the "sunflower state" and wild sunflowers and commercial
sunflower fields can be found across the state, but in recent years, cultivated
sunflower fields which are open to the public have become phenomenally
popular. So many people want a chance to walk through the sunflower fields
and take family photos that one location has had lines of cars up to a
half mile long.
But other farms have responded to the demand and here
is a list of the sunflower fields we have had a chance to visit. Several
of them have pages devoted to them and we will be adding more. There are
still more public sunflower fields and this year or next, we will be visiting
Gieringers Family Orchard & Berry Farm in Edgerton, Baxter Springs
city sunflower field, and Britt's Garden Acres Sunflowers & A&H
Farm in Manhattan.
The sunflower fields in Wathena, Kansas closed for the
season on July 19, 2020.

with other sunflower fields which are open to the public. Our understanding
it that Schwinn Produce Farm in Leavenworth, Baxter Springs City
Sunflower Field, and Peterson Farm Brothers in Lindsborg did not have sunflowers

|Augusta, Kansas - Since 2016, Diana Burress
- B Realty Realtor/Broker has planted a field of sunflowers, open to
the public at no charge. The pretty period for this field was short in
2020 and the bloom was over in mid August.
Take SW Thunder Road southwest of town to SW 115th Street,
and a half mile west.
|Burns, Kansas - Walters
Pumpkin Patch is one of the growing number
of pumpkin patches which are extending their season by adding sunflowers.
In 2020, they planted two crops side by side. The first group is just past
prime as of August 22, with the adjacent group coming on a few days behind.
They offer many activities, such as a corn maze, two gift
shops, play areas, but the $10 admission may seem high if you are just
there for the sunflowers. We liked the fresh warm donuts for a dollar.
The sunflower fields will be open August 22, 23, 29 & 30, 2020.
|Buhler, Kansas - 2020 is the second year of sunflowers
at Kansas Maze Sunflower Festival,
which kicked off August 22 with the main field in full bloom and continues
until September 12.
The $7 fee includes one bloom which you may cut to take
There are a few other things to do, such as jumping pillow,
giant puzzle and photo ops. There will be 5K & 1 mile runs on August
|Clearwater, Kansas - In recent years, Klausmeyer
Farm & Pumpkin Patch, north of Clearwater, Kansas, has added
sunflower fields which are open to the public for a $2 fee. They have planted
three 40 acre fields with sunflowers, a few weeks apart, so they bloom
over a longer period of time. The final day of the 2020 season was August
We like a number of the things which Klausmeyers are doing,
including providing paths to make it easier to go into the fields. In addition,
they have left props for better photo opportunities like benches and round
|Lawrence, Kansas - Ted and Kris Grinter's
Sunflower Farm in Leavenworth County, between Lawrence and Tonganoxie.
have been inviting the public to see their sunflowers for over a decade
and it has become a phenomena. The Grinter family let the public come into
the fields and take photos for free. There is a place to leave a donation
and a dollar is requested if you take a flower with you. The peak has passed,
but there are still photo ops as of September 14.
|Scranton, Kansas - Eleanor's
Events is a public sunflower field a few miles south of Scranton,
Kansas. It grew out of a public service project by the Lyndon Leaders 4H
Club. No admission is being charged, but donations are appreciated. August
22 is the first day the field is open this year and the flowers are just
starting to bloom.
The 2020 season ended September 13.
|Topeka, Kansas - Berry
Hill UPick Farm in Berryton, Kansas, just south of Topeka
is a public sunflower farm. The owners of Berry Hill UPick decided to plant
sunflowers to help draw attention to their strawberry farm. The farm started
growing sunflowers in 2017 and with the popularity of the Grinter's Sunflower
Farm in Leavenworth County, this seemed like a great way to gain visibility.
As of September 15, 2020, the 3rd planting should bloom
has started, though there are only scatered plants, rather than large masses.
