When you Go

When you arrive at Dakeyene Farm, you will be given a map of the sunflower maze. Each year, the maze is a different shape. This year, it was a caterpillar!

As you wander the maze, there are a series of 10 questions that you can answer. Throughout the maze, there are poles with the answers to the questions on them.

Walk around the maze until you have discovered all the answers to the questions!

There is also a great observation tower, sometimes in the middle of the maze, that offers a great view.

It took us about 1.5 hours to complete the maze and to wander and enjoy the view.

Tips

It is very hot in the sunflower maze and there is no shade. Wear sunscreen, and definitely bring a hat. We saw a few people go in with umbrellas! They were thinking ahead!

Go later in the day when it isn’t so hot. They are open every Sunny day during the month of August from 10-7.

Wear good footwear. The maze is on the side of a slight hill and is a farm field. There are ruts and rocks. Dress properly. Strollers would not be easy to push.

Go several times in the season. If you can, it would be nice to go several times to see how the flowers grow and change throughout the season. last year, we went before any major rain, so the flowers hadn’t yet opened or grown very tall, but it was still just as fun!
