Experience the Magical Sunflower Fields of Northern California

During the summertime in Northern California, you may have found yourself lucky to drive through Woodland, Davis or Dixon, where you can see the magical sunflower blooms that line Interstate 5 and Highway 80.

When the air is hot and the sun is shining, that’s the best time to see the sunflowers of NorCal. In June, they’re a little small. By August, they’re a little dried out. In July, they’re perfectly big and bright.

If you want to see these sunflowers, Muller Ranch is popular in Woodland and Pedrick Produce is popular in Dixon. The farms are on private property so please view from the road unless you receive permission from the owners.

Visit Yolo County put together this map to show you where you might be able to find some sunflowers in the area:

During this time of year, talented photographers flock to the fields to capture photos in front of the amazing background of seemingly endless sunflowers. Here are some of our favorite photos from the sunflower fields of NorCal:

Fbf. Certainly one of the highlights of the year is sunflower season. Can’t wait til next year! Looking forward to a weekend of playing in the snow. What are you looking forward to this weekend? Always a pleasure to go up to woodland and see the sunflowers (thanks to @californiafarmsandranches ).

Nothing says summer quite like a field of sunflowers 🌻 in bloom, and we love this brilliant shot from AAA Member Jing (@laughlaughjing). 🌻 Every July, swaths of Dixon and Davis, Calif., are aglow with thousands upon thousands of golden beauties, and many farms welcome visitors. 🌻⁠ .⁠ Where have you been lately?

My last day in the 707… Dear CA, I want you to know I love you, for 36 years of my life you were perfect for me… You gave me a home, a family, a business, and a way of life… This is the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and although I’ll be here to visit a lot, I’ll miss driving by your fields of sunflowers, eating your amazing food, and basking in your weather every day… Arizona won’t replace you. You did nothing wrong. You’ll always be home to me… But I must do what is best for my family and our future, and that means I have to part ways with you… I remember the day I found Solano county 8/2/02…with nothing more than a couple garbage bags of clothes and nothing to my name but good friends who helped me @pastorjaysmo and @smothermama It’s the little things that you do every day that all of a sudden stop…and you have to replace them with new things… I’m gonna miss this place
