Sunflower Hunting on Labor Day Weekend

Posted on September 12, 2017 by under Things to Do, Travel.    

I managed to talk Brian into taking me to visit a couple of sunflower fields over Labor Day weekend. The first one was close to Wheat State Wine Company in Winfield, which we were planning to visit for the Moreland & Arbuckle concert on Saturday night. Our friend Joe recommended it so I talked Brian into making a detour on the way to the show.

Lots of people turned out for the Moreland & Arbuckle concert, the finale of the winery’s Uncork the Music Concert Series.

This was the best attendance we had ever seen at this event since we started going.

It was the perfect weather for an outdoor concert.

The other sunflower farm we visited was Grinter Farms in Lawrence. This is probably the most popular sunflower patch in the area. The field is vast and goes on forever. Here are some of our favorite pics from there.

I’d never been up close and personal with a field of sunflowers before now. It’s pretty amazing. I highly recommend doing it next summer.

The sunflowers usually peak in late August. I would go before the Labor Day weekend because then the sunflower patches will probably be less crowded. I also recommend going either early in the morning around sunrise or late in the afternoon, right before sunset, for the best light for photos.

You can visit Mickey Shannon’s travel blog for a list of some of the best sunflower fields in the area. Have fun and happy sunflower hunting!
