Ann Arbor Sunflower Fields

The Best Ann Arbor Sunflower Fields For Pictures and U-Pick

Spread the love

Are you looking for Ann Arbor Sunflower Fields? I had heard from friends in other cities that these are popular, but did not know there were any near Ann Arbor. Then, I shared a Facebook post from a local farm and had people share more sunflower locations.

You will notice a wide range of seasons across the different sunflower fields. Some farms open in early July, others in August. Some have long seasons, others have short seasons. Some farms with long seasons talk about different varieties becoming available later. My guess is the season depends on how many varieties you have and when each one blooms.

Additionally some fields offer U-Pick and others are just for visiting.

We have updated our Sunflower list for 2022 with a new improved interface to help you find more information about other crops at these farms.

Tips for Visiting a Sunflower Farm

Our friends at Jersey Family Fun, shared their 11 Tips for Visiting a Sunflower Farm.

The most important tip I found was to make sure you check the farm rules. They do all have rules about whether cutting is allowed, pre-purchased tickets are required, payments accepted, length of visit and more.

Other than that, I also liked the suggestions to bring your own shears and a water bottle as a vase.

What tips do you have to add?

  1. Just west of the City of Saline, this amazing farm is bursting with sunflowers in late summer.  A must see with a long history, the Finkbeiners have been growing sunflowers for the past several decades on a rotating basis (every 3-4 years).  Their seeds have been recommended by the Audubon Society and Audubon is now printed on their seed bags.  The seeds are sold in bulk to independent stores and are available locally at Downtown Home Garden in Ann Arbor.
