Full Bloom Is Over — Now What?

Posted 8/4/2017 8:35am by Brian Lau.

The past three weeks have been busy ones here on the farm as guests from across the country visit the sunflower maze. On Thursday, August 3, we ended our full bloom hours and returned to our regular store hours since the sunflowers have passed their peak. What does that mean for you? Can you still visit the maze? 

Above is a photo taken in the second planting of the maze Friday morning. As you can see, there is still a lot of color remaining, but the blooms are drooping and beginning to lose their petals.

 

With color remaining and great weather in the forecast, the maze will remain open for two more days (Friday, August 4 and Saturday, August 5). Please check our store page for hours of operation as they have been reduced from what they were. The wagon shuttle to and from the maze will continue Friday, but may or may not be running Saturday. There are many other tasks around the farm that need to be completed that require both the tractor and the tractor driver. Admission for the maze will remain the same ($3 per person with kids five and under free).

 

Beginning Sunday, August 6, the maze will be closed for the season. Our farm store is open year-round, though, so be sure to visit. We've received a new selection of products, including Wisconsin cheese!

Unless they are service animals, we do not allow pets in the maze.

Just heard about this, and we were planning our visit for tomorrow when I looked at the website! So sorry we missed it! Kids are getting ready to return to school, so,we were trying to get a day trip in before school.
