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, including KC Farm School at Gibbs Road in Kansas City, Cedar Creek Farm & Pumpkin Patch in Maize, 3 Oaks Barn in DeSoto, and Hickory Hollow Pumpkin Patch near Spearville. We are attempting to visit them when they are in bloom. If you have a public sunflower field we have not listed, email us with details and an invitation to visit.

Please contact us at keith@mightymac.org with other sunflower fields which are open to the public. 

Alma, Kansas - Little Munchkins Pumpkin Patch has the newest & smallest public sunflower field we have found. The small field is at the back of Little Munchkins and their many other attractions were drawing all of the attention in 2020 when this photo was taken. 2022 prices were $10/ages 2-16, $5 for Adults, cash or check and the sunflowers bloomed October 1 until about the middle of the month. They are timing the planting to try to have them bloom in late September / early October 2023.

Augusta, Kansas - Since 2016, Diana Burress - B Realty Realtor/Broker has planted a field of sunflowers, open to the public at no charge. The period this field was pretty was short in 2020 and the bloom was over in mid August. In 2022 there was not enough rain and so few flowers bloomed that the field did not open to the public. In 2023 seeds were planted June 23, plants bloom August 14 and lasted about 2 weeks.

Take SW Thunder Road southwest of town to SW 115th Street, and a half mile west.

Baxter Springs, Kansas - For several years, the City of Baxter Springs, Kansas has planted a sunflower field along Historic Route 66 to give folks a photo opportunity along The Route.

Burns, Kansas - Walter's Pumpkin Patch is one of the growing number of pumpkin patches which are extending their season by adding sunflowers. Last year they planted two crops side by side. 

They offer many activities, such as a corn maze, two gift shops, play areas, but the $22.78 admission seems high if you are just there for the sunflowers. We liked the fresh warm donuts for a dollar. The sunflower fields were open in August 2021, but were in bloom only briefly in mid September 2022. They hope the sunflowers will be in bloom on September 16 when the Pumpkin Patch opens for the season.

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. In 2022 they planted three 40 acre fields with sunflowers, a few weeks apart, so they bloomed over a longer period of time. In 2023 the first two Sunflowers have bloomed and one more is anticipated in mid September.

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 hay bales.
