Sunflower Fields in Michigan: 13 Fairytale Fields to Explore, Plus a Sunflower MAZE & Sunflower Festival

Why Visit Sunflower Fields in Michigan?

Sunflowers for miles.

It’s a view you won’t get over anytime soon, and if you have a camera on you, you’ll be snapping photos from every imaginable angle.

Late summer is sunflower season in most of Michigan. The lower part of the state tends to harvest sunflowers earlier, but the bloom time really depends on the variety of sunflowers being grown on the Michigan farm.

If you’d like, you could chase sunflowers around Michigan starting in July and ending in September. You’ll find them planted in the Lower and Upper Peninsula of the mitten state as well.

Farmers have gotten creative with their sunflower crops. Many now offer special photographer sessions. Sunflower festivals are on the agenda, and we even found one farm planning a maze through their sunflower fields in September.

Please, do follow farm rules and respect the crops these farmers work so hard on.
