Sunflower Fields

Written by Rachel Gnagy

Imagine driving down a gravel road in rural Nebraska. On either side of the road you see pastures, cornfields, maybe some soy bean fields. Pretty typical scenery, right? Then you get to the top of the next hill and see golden sunflowers stretching far into the distance.

The first time I saw GreenCover Seed’s fields of sunflowers, I was amazed. They were so beautiful.

 The sunflower seeds will be harvested and pressed for oil. The oil can then be used for cooking, feeding animals, or even to fuel diesel engines. The remains of the seeds after being pressed will also be used for animal consumption.

 I love seeing fields of green, growing corn but there was something so cheery about seeing fields of sunflowers with their bright yellow ‘faces’.

The sunflowers have also been a popular location for some of our fall shoots.

  • This is awesome! When I lived in Western Nebraska, one of my favorite things to do was to drive out near Lake McConaughy where the massive sunflower fields were. There were always tourists gathered taking pictures and most had never seen anything like it! So beautiful!! They are my daughters favorite flowers to this day and she used them in her May (out of season!) wedding. Thanks for sharing!
