Here’s another reason why I think Texas is the best state:
These golden-yellow beauties thrive in dry Texas soil, which means you can find stunning sunflower fields all the way from Austin to Amarillo.
Today, I’ve put together a list of the best sunflower fields in Texas that you can actually visit. These farms will allow you to visit their sunflower fields, take photos, and in some cases, even pick sunflowers for a small fee. It’s a fun, family friendly activity that every Texan should do at least once!
Even better, most of these fields are near popular urban areas, so there’s no excuse not to go out and see the beauty of these bright yellow flowers.

When is the best time to visit sunflower fields in Texas?
You can find sunflowers almost year round in Texas, but certain times of year tend to better.
Because sunflowers prefer warm weather and dry soils, sunflower fields are usually beautiful any time from about March to October.
Blooms are typically strongest from May to June, although commercial fields usually peak from mid-June to early July.

Sunflower Fields near Houston
Located just outside Houston, Dewberry Farms is a great destination for spring blooms. Their annual Spring Fest starts in either April or May and goes for an entire month. For $20 admission, you get access to 30+ attractions, food, music—and oh, 4 acres of sunflowers.
You’ll need to pay separately if you want to take a sunflower home. Dewberry’s pricing changes based on the season, but you can expect to pay $1 – $5 per bloom, which isn’t too bad.

Feel like picking a bouquet of sunflowers? On Saturdays and Sundays from September – November, you can do just that at P-6 Farms. It’s $3 per sunflower and you’ll need to stay within the farm’s picking limit. They ask that you don’t do full-on photography sessions or drone photography in the sunflower fields. You can snap a few quick selfies, but this sunflower field is for pickin’, not posin’.
You’ll spend $20+ for your ticket to P-6, which includes access to the various games, hayride, pig races, and other attractions at the farm.

Froberg’s Farm is best known for its succulent strawberries, but it also offers seasonal blackberry and citrus picking. If you visit during the Fall Festival, you can enjoy the farm’s 5-acre sunflower trail. It costs $2 to do the full trail and you’ll pay $1 per sunflower.
But the great thing about this farm is that it has plenty of other attractions, too! There’s a mining sluice, paintball gallery, and on-site bakery to keep your family entertained. It even does a nighttime corn maze in October, if you want to give yourself lifelong nightmares.
P.S. Froberg’s doesn’t allow professional photography or drones, so if you want to take photos, it just needs to be a quick selfie on your phone.

Sunflower Fields near Dallas-Forth Worth
I always looked forward to visiting Canton, Texas, in the summer when I was a kid. This town is definitely what I would call “peak Texas” and Yesterland Farms is one of the best attractions in town.
If you’re on the hunt for sunflowers, Yesterland just started growing sunflower fields back in 2020. It’s a relatively new thing for them, but it makes for an amazing photo op. You can’t pick the sunflowers, but you can snap as many selfies as you want.
The real perk of Yesterland is its attractions: they have a pumpkin patch, corn maze, petting zoo, fireworks, and even food stalls. It’s a touristy sort of place, but if you want to take some great pics and entertain the kiddos, Yesterland fits the bill.
Keep in mind that it can get pricey! Tickets are $22 – $42 per person depending on what you want to do at the farm.

Mainstay Farm, located just south of Fort Worth, is open from September – October 31 every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (weather permitting). Every year in late September you can snap gorgeous photos in their sunflower fields. The cool thing about Mainstay Farm is that it actually allows professional photography, so if you want really nice pics in the sunflower fields, make sure your photographer follows the farm’s rules.
Mainstay Farm is unique from the sunflower farms in Texas because it’s a big wine destination. You can sample a flight of wines or enjoy them by the glass or bottle. They even have a wine terrace!

Lone Star Family Farm
One visit to Lone Star Family Farm will get you to say “Yeehaw!” before the day is done. Their sunflower fields start blooming in late September, which is when the farm reopens for its annual Fall Festival. According to the website, your $16.50 admission gets you unlimited access to the sunflower fields where you can snap photos to your heart’s content. They don’t say anything about taking blooms home, so unless they say it’s okay to pick the sunflowers while you’re there, plan on leaving only with photos.
But there’s more here than flower fields. Lone Star Family Farm also has cotton fields, corn mazes (one is 8 acres!), a cow train, slides, a petting zoo, pig races, hayrides, and a pumpkin patch.

Sunflowers near Austin
Sweet Eats Fruit Farm
Sweet Eats Fruit Farm is unusual because it isn’t just open on weekends—it’s open every day of the week! This farm holds its annual Sunflower Festival for 10 days every September. It’s a narrow window of time, so if you want to see their 6-acre field with 35 varieties of sunflowers, you’d better act fast!
The other thing I appreciate about Sweet Eats Fruit Farm is that they have designated “selfie zones” in the field and even include photography props. Their wine slushies don’t hurt, either!

Robinson Family Farm
Located an hour north of Austin in Temple, the Robinson Family Farm opens seasonally for fall, Christmas, and Easter. If you want to see some sunflowers, you’ll have to move fast: the farm usually only offers access to its sunflower field for one weekend every year.
A $15 – $20 pass to the farm guarantees your entry as well as access to the sunflower field, pumpkin patch, hayride, corn maze, petting zoo, train, corn cannons, and a lot more. Keep in mind that “entry” doesn’t include picking! If you want to take a sunflower home, you’ll pay $3 per bloom.
Robinson Family Farm also has a chainsaw woodcarver and dog herding shows, so your family can definitely make a day out of visiting this place!

Sunflower Fields in West Texas
Maxwell’s Pumpkin Farm
Starting in mid-September, Maxwell’s Pumpkin Farm opens its doors to the public through October 31. “Pumpkin” may be in their name, but they have a pretty nice field of sunflowers, too! Your $16 ticket gets you access to the sunflower field, a ropes course, mazes, rides, and a lot more. Maxwell’s can’t guarantee blooms, so this is definitely a limited-time affair. They allow sunflower picking, so you can expect to pay a few bucks per bloom if you want to take some home with you.
If that isn’t exciting enough, you can also do ziplining, apple cannons, and paintball here for an extra fee.
