Sunflower Field FAQs

What months do sunflowers bloom in Michigan?

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.

What can I do at a sunflower field?

Farmers have gotten creative with their sunflower crops. Many now offer special photographer sessions.

Sunflower festivals are on the agenda (there’s one at Lewis Farms in New Era), and we even found one farm planning a maze through their sunflower fields in September.

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