Back to Capture More Pure Michigan Sunflowers

It’s late August. Summer is on the downswing here in Michigan and the Midwest. That meant it was time to go hunting for some Pure Michigan sunflowers. Through a friend I learned about the Schell Family Farm just outside Downtown Pinckney. Sunflower score! 🌻🌻🌻

Upon arriving at the entrance along Dexter-Pinckney Road, I took the hilly, lengthy dirt road until arriving at a tent just in front of the sunflowers.

A preview of what awaited me.

Hours for viewing the sunflowers are Friday through Sunday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It costs $4 dollars, which includes being able to snip and take one home. You can take more sunflowers for an additional charge. Cutters and a bucket filled with water are provided to help you carry them. I learned how quickly sunflowers need water upon cutting or else they will wilt.

I kept the camera ready as I started out taking scores of pictures. They allow you to walk right into the sunflower field, pathway or not. I took advantage, also taking a few of the narrow pathways that cut out.

Sunflowers of all heights and colors will await you. There was a shorter yellow sunflower field, alongside a much taller orange themed one.

I found time to take a nap amongst the sunflower beauty. 🌻🌻🌻

Taking in the sunflowers

Based on previous sunflower visits, I know sunflowers don’t stay in full bloom for very long, a few weeks at the most. The growers did say this is the peak week to visit (late August).

I spent about an hour navigating the Pure Michigan sunflower beauty. I will let the rest of my pictures do the talking.

Schell Family Farm is not going to be just a sunflower farm. They are in the process of becoming an orchard and Christmas tree farm as well. You can even roam through a corn maze right now! At Halloween, you will be able to navigate a haunted forest, visit a pumpkin patch, and much, much more. It’s going to become a fun place to bring the kids and hang out. I saw a family eating at one of the nearby picnic tables after picking a bunch of sunflowers.

What a great first visit to Schell Family Farm. You can find them on Facebook.

The calendar has flipped to August in Michigan, the days are starting to get shorter and we are on the back half of summer. That must mean it’s sunflower season! 🌻🌻🌻 This season brought me to Fowlerville in Livingston County and the sunflower field at Munsell Farms. Sunflowers galore!

You will find this sunflower field and Munsell Farms off W. Mason Rd. just east of Fowlerville Rd. It’s just a few miles off of Exit 129 on I-96 to the south.

I parked alongside Mason to grab a few shots without going into the field itself. Like with my previous sunflower adventures, I choose to check them out early in the day against the early morning light.

From my experience Michigan sunflowers don’t stay fully bloomed for long. If it’s late summer get out there as soon as you have the chance. 🌻🌻🌻

Another sunflower excursion is in the books. So beautiful to see up close as always. I would contact Munsell Farms directly to inquire about grabbing a few shots from within the field itself. You can find them on Facebook.
