Maple Lawn Farms & Maple Lawn Winery
The farmers at Maple Lawn Farms planted 8-acres, or approximately 8 football fields of sunflowers. In one section, it’s planted full of the classic yellow sunflowers that will mature at about 5 feet tall.
In another 2 acres, visitors get to see 10-12 different varieties planted in display plots to show of each individual variety.
In “Land of the Giants,” towering sunflowers form adorable child-size structures. The sunflower structures are ALIVE in a sea of dwarf “Teddy Bear”sunflowers, which grow just 2-3 feet tall.
In “The Wilds” guests may pick their included sunflower, or pick their pre-purchased 6, 12, or 18 Sunflowers from a mixture of 28 different varieties! All different sizes and colors displayed in ornamental sunflowers.
Relax, get a bite to eat and even enjoy a glass of wine from Maple Lawn Winery under the enormous white tent and enjoy the lawn – all right in the middle of the Sunflower Fields!
The event is the 2nd annual Sunflower Festival for Maple Lawn Farms and was inspired by a trip over the winter to Buttonwood Farm in Connecticut.
“We followed the recommendations and planted at the right times,” says Matt Posey, farm manager at Maple Lawn Farms. “It’s agriculture. Our guests will have to be forgiving if the sunflowers don’t all cooperate, but when it happens, it should be a wonderful show.”
“Sunflowers are symbols of positive thoughts, feelings and create a happy atmosphere,” says Hugh McPherson, Maize Quest’s Mazemaster. “They connect with people, and we want people to connect with farming on a personal level.”
