Sunflowers

These beauties aren't just our state flower but also are a gorgeous backdrop for photos around Kansas! Sunflowers pop up each summer in the state but remember, not all sunflower fields that are planted are open to the public, so please be respectful of the fields and research before you head out with a camera. Visiting sunflower fields that are open to the public is a great way to support local farmers and to Shop Kansas Farms! We'll be adding more public sunflower fields to our list as we find them! 

Most fields have Facebook pages that they update, so keep an eye on those as they share when their fields are at their best. Enjoy the beauty of these yellow flowers while they thrive in the Kansas sun. View the map below for locations!
