Sunflower Fields in Wisconsin
Nothing says summer like a sprawling sunflower field. These bright yellow blooms always put a smile on my face and I love searching for new farms to visit each year. Since their season is quickly approaching, here are three sunflower fields in Wisconsin that you should definitely check out!
When do they bloom?
Late July to early August.
How long do they last?
Sunflowers have a very short season. They only bloom for about one to two weeks!
Standard sunflowers are usually 6-10 feet tall.
After closing last year due to parking issues, Pope Farm Conservancy is open once again! Their 2019 Sunflower Days is being held from July 26th – August 4th, 2019. This year you must buy tickets in order to visit the sunflower field. It costs $4 for adults (children 12 and under are free).

At Leatherberry Acres, you can find your way through their 7-acre sunflower maze. This year, they’ve planted enough seeds so that their sunflower maze blooms from August through September!
