Welcome to Our Sunflower Field Maze & Patches
Come enjoy a walk through our 2-acre sunflower field maze or sneak off to one of our 6 different sunflower patches to take in the different varieties of sunflowers we planted. This is our 1st year for a sunflower field, and we are excited to open up our farm to you and your family to enjoy the fruits of our labor. We hope you enjoy your afternoon with us and make some great memories with your loved ones.
We look forward to your visit.

The maze will be open until 9/17. We planted branching varities so they keep blooming until 1st frost or are cut down.

Yes, we encourage it and hope you tag us on social media (#jkorchardfarm). We do have a professional photography policy though so if you are having a professional photographer come out to take your pictures, they will need to purchase a pass HERE.
*Professional photographers are anyone who makes a profit or charges a fee for the photos they take (people or scenery). OR will use the pictures in conjucntion with their business for online portfilios, even if photographing family members at no charge.
Business Tip: Be the type of customer you want to attract (i.e. honest and willing to pay for services, not cheap and a freebie seeker).
How long is your Sunflower maze?
Over a 1/4 mile long.
Is the Sunflower maze stroller and wheelchair friendly?
Yes. The maze paths are 6ft wide and have been mowed and rolled all season so they feel like a typical yard.
How tall are your Sunflowers this year?
We purposely planted shorter varities (3.5ft up to 5) ft. for a couple of reasons. One it makes the pictures awesome when you look like you are surrounded in a sea of sunflowers. Two parents have expressed during our pumpkin patch festival that they liked being able to see their kids when they are in the maze.
Is there off street parking?
Yes, there is parking in grassy areas behind the orchard. In the event of a lot of rain maze hours maybe cancelled due to risk of cars getting stuck.
Is there a public restroom?
Yes, we have a toilet trailer with flushable toilets and running water. Please note the trailer has stairs and is not wheelchair accessible.

We are an organic farm so naturally we lean more towards preventative and natural remedies to fight the flu like immune boosting super foods, having healthy gut bacteria, vitamins, regular exercise, proper hygiene practices, decreasing stress and getting out into nature to play in the dirt and sunshine. However, this is our beliefs and what we feel is best for us which may be different from your beliefs, so to ensure everyone feels safe and at ease we have the following practices in place:
The maze paths are 6ft wide with plenty of cutouts to easily achieve social distancing.
Restrooms available for handwashing.
Mask are not required however if you feel more at ease wearing one then by all means wear one. We just ask that you pay attention to how you feel because you will be outside the whole time in the elements... we don't want anyone passing out. Please note: mask bullying (on or off) will not be tolerated in any way! We feel strongly about this so if we witness this you will be asked to leave.
If you feel sick in anyway, please stay home.
