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,
us with details and an invitation to visit.
Please contact us at email@example.com
with other sunflower fields which are open to the public.

favorite Kansas sunflower fields.

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.

there for the sunflowers. We liked the fresh warm donuts for a dollar.

in mid September 2022.
