Sunflower Trails

IMG_0008-3

***Due to high winds last week and now flooding and heavy rains this week, “Sunflower Trails” will be CLOSED until next year (2019)! We had almost 1000 attendees this year and have lots of great ideas and improvements for next year. Like our page The Heights – Wedding Reception Venue & Sunflower Agritourism to stay in touch for the announcement of when we will open in 2019!***

Every fall we are opening up one of our sunflower fields located at Greg and BrookeAnna’s farmstead 2 miles north of Lindsborg, KS by Coronado Heights! You will be able to walk through trails in the field and take as many pictures as you like for $2 a person. You may also take home a sunflower head as a souvenir if you like for a suggested donation of $2 per head.

Directions to the field are found below!

In 2019 we plan to open every morning and evening the sunflowers are at peak bloom for 2 weeks straight! We encourage you to check our website next summer for our anticipated open dates. We enjoy opening our field and farm to visitors!

  • Our sunflowers are taken to a nearby elevator and processed into either birdseed, cooking oil, or sunflower meal.
  • It is a common misconception that blooming sunflowers follow the sun. At times, when the buds are still small, ours will follow, but after they bloom they always face east! This is mainly because the heads are so heavy.
