Sunflower Maze(s) On The Way!

Posted 5/15/2018 10:00am by L&A Family Farms.

We're excited to be growing the sunflower maze once again in 2018, and we had so much fun last year that we have SIX different sections planned for this summer!

We were able to get in the field and plant the first section last Saturday (May 12), so it'll take approximately 60 days for those sunflowers to reach the blooming stage, pending weather conditions.

Our goal is to plant one of the remaining sections every two weeks, which will hopefully extend our season through most of the month of July and into August. Each section is roughly five acres, so they will be similar to last year's maze.

To stay up to date on the latest sunflower maze happenings and to keep track of when they'll be ready, be sure to visit our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages!

We will also be updating the maze timeline and providing additional information as it becomes available on the Sunflower Maze page.

Hi Erlinda, we're really glad that you are planning to visit us! Unfortunately though the sunflowers won't be in bloom until later in the year since we were only able to plant them recently. We are hoping that they will be blooming around the first week of July. If you would like to stay updated though, we like to keep everyone informed about the maze with posts on our face book page through out the year. Hope you can make it out to see us!

Shirley, Unfortunately we won't have a field of sunflowers in full bloom that weekend. There will be some left in our second section, but most of the field will be wilting. Our next section probably won't be ready until the middle of August. You can find a daily picture of the maze by visiting The Daily Briefing (top right-hand side of this page).
