At the mention of Kansas, sunflowers typically come to mind. But Kansas has a handful of lovely lavender farms worth a visit as well! Lavender is known for its relaxing scent and is often put in bath products due to its soothing effects. Lavender Farms in Kansas provide the best views in late spring and early summer, often the month of June but sometimes later depending on the weather.
