Sunflowers on TV

Farmer Ted and I were watching TV last night and a commercial for KS tourism came on.  The I hear Ted say, "That's my field!"  Sure enough, we made the cut.

Last summer, the KS department of tourism was out at our place and they had a drone with a video camera shooting some film.  We had no idea what they intended to do with the footage until we saw the commercial last night.  This is the long version and we are at 1 minute, 50 seconds in.  (All of the short versions I've seen end with our sunflowers.)  Pretty neat!  And I'm now a fan of this Logan Mize who is singing.  (Ted met him when they were filming last year.)

  3. Bryan, the sunflowers are usually blooming towards the latter part of August. I will do updates on this website and also on FaceBook under "Grinter Farms" as soon as we get them planted sometime in July.

  5. I am in Virginia and planning to go for a vacation in Kansas in Aug. Will visit your farm. Which is a better day to see the bloom this year, Aug 16 or 24? Thanks

  6. Did they get permission to use video of the sunflowers on the farm? If not you should let the tourism office know. An advertising agency was paid to shoot that video and while some might not make hay over it, it is considered a serious issue to not ask for permission

  7. How are the sunflowers looking right now? I want to bring my family out for pictures, but we are an hour away. So, I want to make sure we pick the right weekend to come out. Can't wait to see them!!! :)
