L&A Family Farms: Home of the Sunflower Maze

Many people are familiar with corn mazes in the fall, but a summer sunflower maze is a new twist. In 2015, we planted a couple acres of sunflowers for bird seed. When the sunflowers were blooming, it was a beautiful site, and the idea of a sunflower maze was born.

If you are unfamiliar with outdoor ag mazes, you enter the maze at the starting point and wander your way through the paths looking for the exit. Don’t be surprised to find a few dead ends along the way.

The sunflower maze is dependent on Mother Nature, so be prepared. The paths could be muddy or dusty. The summer sun may make it hot and muggy. We suggest you bring bottled water and wear sun protection. Please be aware of the weather conditions while you are on the farm. If the weather becomes severe, we will close the maze until the threat passes.

Since this is a farm field, we recommend you wear closed toe shoes. If you are allergic to bee stings, exercise caution in the field because it will be full of pollinators while the sunflowers are in bloom.

 

Sunflowers are only in full bloom for a short period of time. They usually only last a week or two, depending on the weather. If you want to witness this spectacle, be prepared to act quickly! This is not the time to procrastinate.

Stay up to date on the latest developments by checking our social media accounts: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

  

OTHER DETAILS: 

- The admission fee to the maze is $5.00 per person.  Kids 5 and under are free.

- For the safety of our visitors and livestock, we do not allow pets in the maze unless they are service animals.

We hope your visit to our farm is a fun and memorable experience!

Gorgeous and they were fixing brats and hamburgers which were amazing. Homemade ice cream and flavored bottle drinks. Super friendly owners. This will definitely be a yearly event for us.
