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 we planned to visit the Wathena sunflower field in 2022, but it is closed to the public this year. 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 are $10/ages 2-16, $5 for Adults, cash or check. The sunflowers finally bloomed on October 1 and will last until about the middle of the month.

Planted July 19, 2022, but there was not enough rain and so few flowers bloomed that the field did not open to the public.

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 $14.95 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.

Buhler, Kansas - 2022 is the fourth year of sunflowers at Kansas Maze Sunflower Festival, which kicked off August 24 and continues until September 18. The 2022 price is $9.

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 last day of sunflowers in 2022 was July 24.

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.
