Planning Your Visit

We look forward to your visit to our sunflower mazes and pick-your-own flower fields.

Bring your friends and family — it’s a great place to explore and enjoy the outdoors and nature.

Best Times of Day to Visit

  • Mornings and late afternoon-to-evenings are the best time to visit.
  • Sunsets are typically gorgeous! And if we’re lucky, we’ll have lightning bugs.

 

Transporting Your Flowers

  • If you’re not purchasing a collection vase or mason jar and purchasing flowers by the stem, you’ll need to bring a container & water to transport your flowers home.
  • AVOID leaving your flowers in the hot car! You will want to get your flowers inside and in fresh water so they can recover from the stress of being cut.
  • When your home, put them into fresh water immediately and place in a cool spot out of direct sunlight.
