The Summer of Sunflowers
Pick your own sunflowers!
**UPDATE: Our sunflower season will hopefully open early August and we expect to have sunflowers well into fall this year. We're running a few weeks behind due to all the rain we had in May and June which are our planting months.**
The middle of the month of July is usually when our sunflower fields begin to bloom. We plant over 30 varieties of "cutting" sunflowers on eight acres in successive crops to ensure at least six weeks of blooming flowers.
We also have one of the nation's only sunflower mazes! That's right, sunflower MAZE (maze is offered as an add-on to the general admission ticket - it is $3 per person). The sunflower maze only blooms for about two weeks starting in the middle of August ** THE 2018 SUNFLOWER MAZE has been postponed until the middle of September this year**.
Admission to the Summer of Sunflowers is $6 per person (under 2 are free). We also offer an unlimited re-entry Sun Pass for $10. Unlimited re-entry is a great option as the sunflower fields are always changing. No two days are alike in the picking fields! Sunflower maze tickets are offered at half price for Sun Pass holders.
Admission includes access to our huge Jump Pad, bounce house, two story slide, bubble stations, chalkboard message signs for photos, cornhole games, kids clubhouse play area and shaded picnic area.
Sunflowers are $1.50 per stem. We also have a meadow of cosmos for .50 cents per stem and we plant a garden of gladiolus, which are an excellent companion flower for sunflowers in a vase. Gladiolus are $1 per stem. NEW FOR 2018 are Liatris! Liatris flowers are $1 per stem.
Well behaved, leashed dogs are allowed anytime during our summer season. Dogs are not allowed during our spring season.
