One of my favorite activities to do in late summer/ early fall is going to the Sussex County Sunflower Maze. This sunflower maze is owned by a family farm in Sussex County New Jersey. The past two Septembers I have gone here with my boyfriend and it’s the cutest little place! They have two different mazes with a wide variety of sunflowers. They have the classic beautiful yellow sunflowers and deep red ones.
After being there twice, here are some tips about visiting this sunflower maze!
Make sure to go early in the season! This season, they were originally supposed to be open a few weekends into September. Due to hurricane Florence, they had to close early. Last summer, they stayed open an extra weekend and that’s how I was able to go. Even though it is great to go when it is a little cooler, if you want to make sure you get to the maze, definitely plan to go earlier in the season.
(They usually open at the beginning of August)
Wear boots or other shoes that you don’t mind getting mud on them! I know you are going to want to look cute for your Instagram but it could be muddy if it has rained recently.
Bring a friend! The sunflower maze is so much more fun with friends. Your friends can help take great pictures while you are there!
Make sure to buy a sunflower on your way out. They have beautiful big sunflowers for only a few bucks! Not only are they gorgeous but they help support a local family farm!
Overall, it is so incredibly peaceful and fun walking around a huge sunflower field! It’s only $10 per person! Please check out their Facebook page for updates and great photos of the sunflower maze!
