Sunflower Maze Sneak Peek

Posted 7/14/2017 8:00pm by Brian Lau.

We're excited to open our second sunflower maze this summer! We've been busy the past week preparing the maze, store, and farm for this year's season. Unfortunately, multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms created a muddy mess in the sunflower field, preventing us from mowing it as soon as we wanted and delaying other preparations around the farm.

In the meantime, the sunflowers continued to grow, and many of the buds in the first planting are either open or quickly developing yellow centers.

We've heard excitement and anticipation from a lot of people in the past month, and while the maze isn't in full bloom at this point, we wanted to give an opportunity to see the maze and enjoy the pleasant weather in the forecast for Saturday. Therefore, we will have the maze OPEN Saturday, July 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Central time for a sunflower maze "sneak peek." Many of the details remain the same, as you can find on our sunflower maze page. Keep in mind the ground is still soft, so wear shoes you wouldn't mind getting muddy if you visit.

The maze will be CLOSED Sunday, July 16, but we hope to begin our full bloom hours later that week. Keep checking social media for the latest.

We can't wait to see you, and we hope you enjoy your time on the farm!

Last year, the maze lasted almost two weeks, but we have planted an additional planting this year, so we could still have pretty blooms for photos and to enjoy through July. It will largely depend on the weather between now and then.

We do not allow pets in the maze unless they are service animals due to safety concerns for our visitors and animals.

If you have a doggie stroller and kept your dog in it can you bring your dog?

Unfortunately, no. We only allow service animals in the maze.
