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 Sunflower Fields and Sunflower Farms in Michigan.

Don't you just love the cherry faces on Sunflowers?

Michigan Sunflower Fields and Farms

Below are our favorite Michigan sunflower fields and sunflower farms in Michigan.

Leabo Farm (Suttons Bay) Sunflower Farm 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!

Be sure to stop into Gull Meadow Farms in August for their Sunflower Festival!!!  

Families are invited to explore five acres of sunflowers colored yellow, plum, red, white and more!

Farm Manager Justin Wendzel said the multi-colored sunflowers are planted in mid-May and bloom for about two full weeks in August. 

“We love seeing families make memories here at the farm," Wendzel said. "What better way than a field full of beautiful sunflowers? When you see a field of sunflowers you just can’t help but smile.”

Tickets are around $13 per person, though children under 36 inches tall are admitted free. Each ticket gets visitors a wagon ride out to the sunflower field and one sunflower to take home.
