Once a crop of Sunflowers begin to turn brown, they are harvested using large machines called combines. If farmers leave them too long, birds will eat them! Combine harvesters simultaneously separate the seeds from the flower heads. The seed collection is then sent to sorting to remove any remaining chaff and other foreign material. The seeds can be further processed by roasting, dehydrating, adding salt, seasonings or even being candied.

There are two main types of sunflower seeds, those grown for snacks and those grown for oil. The snacking types are a bit larger and contain less oil. Yum!
