There are a lot of sunflowers in Kansas, but North Dakota grows more than any other state, and the cooking oil and bird seed companies are grateful. Personally I just like to look at them, the plant not the seeds.
I do see that a lot of people will grow a small patch and at least one farm, in Newport, grows a small commercial crop of sunflowers. Click on photos to enlarge
