We make the trek each year to see the gorgeous sunflowers in this generous farmer's fields and bask in the glory of the beauty of nature. Hubby and I tend to take informal cell phone photos that we use on our Christmas card because of course our family who doesn't live in Kansas know sunflowers thrive here!

Be sure to follow Grinter Farms on Facebook for the latest info about bloom times and how the crop is performing. Farmer Ted and his wife do a great job of allowing the public to tour the beautiful fields and I hate when I see people taking advantage of their hospitality by taking sunflowers (there is an at-will offering box with a suggested cost of just $1 per stem) without paying, and professional photographers setting up shop and expecting other people to stay out of "their" perfect shots. Farmer Ted and his wife ask for this to not happen (or give them part of their fee, which is TOTALLY reasonable!), but people tend to take advantage.

Expect plenty of bees and other bugs to be flying and crawling around (it's a FARM!), and this year there was plenty of mud because of recent rains (good for the sunflowers!). The flowers are planted to be in bloom over Labor Day, but be prepared for long lines to park and traffic backed up for quite awhile, especially if you go on Saturday during the day or anytime Monday. Be patient and you'll be rewarded with a gorgeous view of the rolling hills planted with blooming sunflowers.

Beautiful walk through a field of sunflowers. It was pretty crowded so we didn't go through the store. Wear good walking shoes for the mud (it's a field, so DUH). They allow donations (especially if you accidentally pick on - please don't!), had a food truck there, lots of shade to eat in. Great little outdoor, non-commercial stop. So nice of them to offer this!

I am so thankful that they allow the public to go there every year. Breathtaking sunflower field. The best time to go is not during the holiday or peak time because if you're Trying to take pictures everybody gets in your way. It's a beautiful place for portraits and other photography or just to admire the beauty. Just bring bug spray and be prepared there are no bathrooms. It is free but if you pick a flower they Ask you to put money in the Box or if you're doing for photogtaphy professionally it's a courtesy to pay.

I've heard about this place for years and how popular it is. It is nothing. And it is hard to find. Skip it.

My daughter and friend made a 3 hour trip to see this sunflower farm as a weekend getaway. For fall break and Arrived today to find out that your attraction has closed and your web page hasn’t been updated to reflect this change. In my opinion it is a very poor way to run a business not to mention that this was the only reason for this trip was for a little rest and recreation they had heard great things about your establishment needless to say not updating your web page is very irresponsible of your business!!!!

The Grinter family is so kind to have their farm open for free to visitors. Their sunflower fields are just gorgeous.. and you're even allowed to take one home for a donation! I've gone every year for 3 years... There's only about a week or two out of the year that the sunflowers are in bloom, usually in late August or early September. If you're in the KC/Lawrence area around then, you've gotta see the sunflower fields!

If the sunflowers are blooming, get out here with your selfie stick or bestie to take some photos you will cherish for a lifetime. You can't get a more iconic Kansas experience than this. Bring $20 and purchase something from their local crafts store to help assure this unique experience will stick around for the next generation to enjoy.

Sunflowers galore!

There is no admission fee and parking was no problem.

Grinter Farms has several fields of sunflowers and visitors can walk among the beautiful flowers. If you like photography, the possibilities are endless. We were there on a sunny September day and the combination of the sunshine and the glorious yellow fields was well worth the drive.

This was our second year to visit Grinter Farms. There isn’t anything more beautiful or peaceful (if you go very early in the AM) in the area. HIGHLY recommend going early morning, it’s worth the trip. Typically Labor Day weekend is insanity if they are in full bloom at that time. This amazing family open their amazing farm to tens of thousands of visitors free of charge. There are donation poles in various locations and strongly encourage folks to make even a nominal contribution to their efforts. It is an amazing place!!

This is a free attraction and is only available late August and early September (around Labor Day) when the sunflowers are in bloom. They plant 40 acres of sunflowers. Visitors are free to roam through the fields. Many picture opportunities. We were allowed to pick as many sunflowers as we wanted for $1 per bloom. This is a very popular place.
