Did you know the Ozarks are home to several sunflower fields? If you’re looking for a fun photo op or to take a bit of sunshine home with you, here are several places you can pick your own sunflowers.
7C's sunflower experience allows you to stroll the 2.5-acre field and take pictures at several open spaces. Tickets are $5 per adult and children 12 and under are free. Dates range from late August to early September. Later in the year, 7C’s will offer a u-pick season to take home even more sunflowers for $2 a stem.
