We'll be going through your state toward the middle or end of May. Is this a good time to see blooming sunflower fields? What are the highways to see the best fields? Is there a plant that processes sunflowers for oil, seeds or whatever that we can tour?
Thanks for your time and hope to hear from you soon.
Have a nice day.

The best areas to see sunflowers are the western tier counties in Kansas. I would recommend the Goodland area and some of the counties that surround it. Wallace County to the south of Goodland also has sizable amounts of sunflower fields.

May is awfully early for sunflowers to be in bloom, isn't it?

Sorry, I should have added that sunflowers bloom in late summer into fall. August would be the best time to view the fields.
