Michigan Sunflowers | Sherry Trautman | Traveling Michigan
Every late July through mid August, stunning Michigan Sunflowers are a sight to behold! But they can be hard to find!
Check out our Sunflower Map for Michigan Sunflower Fields and Sunflower Farms in Michigan.
Don't you just love the cherry faces on Sunflowers?
*Be sure to click this link to open the Michigan Sunflower Map in Google Maps so you can see where they are as you drive!
Below are our favorite Michigan sunflower fields and sunflower farms in Michigan.
Directions: Leabo Farm; 9224 E. Duck Lake Road, Suttons Bay, MI. Head north on M22, turn left onto M204 which is also E. Duck Lake Road. It is around a mile down the road on the left.
I am newly obsessed with Michigan sunflowers after we happened across a glorious field with rolling hills of happy yellow sunflowers while on a road trip across Sutton's Bay in the Leelanau Peninsula this summer.
Leabo farms are super sweet to put out a ladder so viewers can have a birds eye view of the colorful flowers. You can park in their yard and take as many photos as you like and buy some blooms to cheer up your home or office!

Pop on over to Frankenmuth to wander the extraordinary Bavarian village in August. While you are there, you absolutely MUST go to Grandpa Tiny's Farm to pet the cute horses, donkey and reindeer. See the cute pig behind the barn and cluck back at the chickens! Their peacocks just might show off their magnificent feathers if you are lucky!
At the end of July each year, Grandpa Tiny's hosts the Frankenmuth Flower Festival! Holy moly, it's an explosion of color!
