Every fall we open up one of our sunflower fields located at Greg and BrookeAnna’s farmstead 2 miles north of Lindsborg, KS by Coronado Heights! Visitors can walk through trails in the field and take as many pictures as they like for $5 a person or $10 per family of up to 5 (For families over 5 people it will be an additional $2/person). They may also take home a sunflower head as a souvenir for an additional $5 per head. Restrooms, shade, bottled water and snacks for sale are all available at the field.

We had almost 1000 attendees in 2018 and have lots of great ideas and improvements for this year.

We are only open for 2 more days in 2019: Friday and Sunday! We are closed on Saturday for a wedding.

UPDATE: On September 6th, half the field is drying out (bottom pic) and half the field is at about 80% (top pic), but will be drying out more each day with the hot weather. If you want to see the sunflowers at peak bloom this week, it is important you come sooner rather than later!

Things to Remember:

  • Put on bug spray and drink plenty of water
  • Check the weather! Sunflowers look the best in sun! They also look pretty cool with clouds. They don’t look good in the rain and it will be muddy!
  • Dogs are welcome, as long as they are on a leash!
  • Be respectful to our flowers and others on the trail
  • Please tag our Facebook page @theheightslbk and Instagram page @theheightslbk in all of your pictures to share our location with others!

  • Check out our YouTube channel @petersonfarmbrothers to learn more about farming!
