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 popular most of all time on those fields HERE.

 

***Post has been updated as of 8/1/21 to reflect the 2021 sunflower info! Please note that some fields are in peak bloom RIGHT NOW and others won’t be ready until later this season. It all depends on when the farmers planted (and the crazy cycles of heat, cold, and rain we have had this summer have affected things too)!***

 

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!

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)

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

From their Facebook page:

We are open!!!!

Please read

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.

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.

The flowers don’t follow the sun and are facing East. The average height this year is just about waist level with some spots being taller and some being shorter. Please enjoy the beautiful field and reach out to me if you have any questions.

I’ll post photos of the field every few days so you can see how it’s blooming.

Hours: Dawn to Dusk, 7 days a week

Lindsey Dykstra

9400 104th Ave
Zeeland, MI

(Please note the field will be closed for the year on August 10th.)
