Sunflower Fields in Michigan

sunflower fields michigan

This post is for sunflower fields all over the state of Michigan. If you are looking for more flower field options (lavender, dahlia, gardens, etc.), you can check out my most second most popular post of all time on those fields HERE. *Updated for 2024!*

 

*This list & map may NOT be copied or reproduced without explicit written permission* This is my copyrighted work. I have spent years researching and compiling this list. 

 

Lavender season does come first…in early to mid-July! You can check out my Lavender Fields post here πŸ™‚ 

 

I will keep this post updated when new details emerge as the season goes along. Peak sunflower time is not until August/Sept, but that gives you plenty of time to make plans!

 

Also, please remember to be respectful if you visit so that these beautiful places stay open to visitors!

 

Some places offer U-Pick and others are just for taking beautiful photos, so please make sure before you cut any flowers!

Gull Meadows (Richland, MI)

Sunflower Days

August 18-20, 25-27, & September 1-2* (Crop dependent)

Come walk through our 5-acres of brilliant-colored sunflowers for the 4th year of Sunflower Days at Gull Meadow Farms.

There will be a wagon to take you from the market area out to the sunflower field and back. There will also be an opportunity to add a French bucket to fill with ucut blooms for $19.99, or you can purchase additional blooms on the day of your visit.
 
Purchase your tickets in advance to save! Tickets are available at a discount if you pre-purchase online. This year, tickets are for general admission, which allows you to choose the date that works for you during our open hours. Please note, that GOLDEN HOUR tickets are date/time specific.

Professional Photographers – If professional photographers would like to come during our regular sunflower days times, they must purchase a ticket (as well as each of their clients) for access to the sunflower field. No special arrangements need to be made. We do ask that you not “mark off” a spot in the field for your photo sessions and that you are conscious of other guests experiences while at the farm. We do have photographer guidelines here at Gull Meadow Farms that we ask you follow (https://www.gullmeadowfarms.com/…/photographer-guidelines). Photographers are not allowed to solicit taking photos of customers during the sunflower festival.

 

There is a Hot Air Balloon Festival here in August too!

They have spirits, wines, and hard ciders here! Bonus!

Waiting on 2024 Sunflower Info.

About the Sunflower Fields (from their website): A visit to one of our sunflower fields is guaranteed to pick up your day and positively set your frame of mind!  Take time from life’s daily routines to stroll through the field, take pictures, and just sit and relax among the thousands of sunflowers in bloom.  We will have several fields this year and they bloom at different times.  Each field only lasts about two weeks.  Check back for an update on when our fields are expected to bloom, admission fees, and hours.  Professional photography sessions are available evenings and after hours for a fee.  Check our photography policy for more information on this.

You can read the photo policy HERE.

Liefde Farm (Zeeland, MI)

Liefde will not be open in 2023 due to a barn fire πŸ™ 

This is a working family farm, so please proceed with caution and respect.

You need to enter the actual address into your GPS. The farm will not come up if you type in the name.

9400 104th Ave
Zeeland, MI

 

When they do open for the season:

Pull in by the long red barn drive along the south side. The sunflower field is behind it. You may park along the barn and pull out the same way you came in. We have things growing on the other side of the barn along with irrigation pipe on the ground.

Please drive carefully. We have kids, chickens, cats, and a dog. If the dog gets out he’s very friendly but forgets his manners when he’s excited and jumps up on people. His name is Newt.

There’s a pond so please be cautious of that.

As always, this is our home so please respect our property and animals.

2021 Info:

We grow the sunflowers for fun and like to share it with others. Our field is open for walk throughs and photos, but we ask that (if you’re able) to leave a donation to help with the cost. There is a mail box set up at the entrance to the field. For professional photographers charging for their services, there is a $15 studio fee per session.

Hours: Dawn to Dusk, 7 days a week
