While there are more than a few fantastic u-pick flower farms in WNY, sunflower fields are a pretty rare find. By now you probably know about Sunflowers of Sanborn, the sunflower field in Niagara County that legit blew up a few years back when a family happened to plant sunflowers in a field and everyone in WNY made it their mission in life to take a pic in the field.
Well, big news fam! Did you know there are actually two other WNY sunflower fields, and the one in Clarence at Kelkenberg Farm offers tons more than just sunflower stalking.

The family operated farm not only offers u-pick sunflowers during peak season (August), but it’s open for educational tours, family visits, large events and group parties for all ages year round. Kelkenberg Farm is actually a real livestock and horse farm that has been welcoming farm visitors since 1980.

They are open during every season, including for pumpkin picking in the fall, sleigh rides in the winter, baby animals in the spring, Mother’s Day and Sunflower Field Day in the summer along with summer picnics.
Admission to the farm is $9 and includes seeing and touching all of the animals, pony rides for children, a hayride for the family to the sunflower patch, and other interactive activities on the farm. Visitors can add on a visit to the brand new bounce pad for $4/ages 4+ (toddlers and parents jump free). They also offer snacks and refreshments in their market and reservations are rain or shine.

Because of the Corona times we find ourself in, like other u-pick farms across the state Kelkenberg Farm is currently open by reservation only and admission is required to take a ride out to the sunflower patch and u-pick sunflowers.
To ensure proper social distancing, the total number of visitors allowed is currently limited and wearing a mask when you cannot maintain 6 ft distance from people outside of your group is recommended.

If you’re interested in picking your own sunflowers, of which Kelkenberg offers dozens of varieties – and let’s be honest, that’s clearly why you’ve landed on this article in the first place – u-pick flowers are $5/half dozen and $20 for a bucketful, including a steel pail. They also have a limited amount of pre-cut available in the market.
Happy sunflower stalking, WNY!
