U-Pick Sunflower Farms in Michigan
There are many farms across Michigan that allow you to come to their fields and walk through the sunflowers, and even take some pictures, but not everyone does u-pick sunflowers.
Whether you want to go on an adventure in your own backyard or travel somewhere a bit further, there are plenty of farms in Mid-Michigan and beyond that do u-pick sunflowers. You can pick them by the stem or create a whole bouquet, and many of these places will provide you with clippers to cut with. Not to mention, many of these locations hold whole Sunflower Festivals, complete with food, drinks, vendors, and more.
Sunflower season typically runs from mid-to-late July through mid-to-late September, so at the time of writing this (early August), you've still got plenty of time to check out some gorgeous sunflowers, take all the social media-worthy pictures you want, and pick some blooms to take home for yourself. Do keep in mind that some farms have photo policies, but not to worry, we've linked to all the places in the gallery below.
