Its $5/adult to enter the fields, which includes 1 free flower.  Kids with adults are free.  We want families to make memories on the farm!  Extra flowers can be cut if youd like.  They are $2/flower or 6 flowers for $10. We will even wrap them up for you. 
We have multiple picnic tables or throw a blanket down and bring a lunch. 
We encourage you to take as many pictures as you can!! 
The fields are thirsty.  The lack of rain is causing a little delay, but its still BEAUTIFUL with lots of heads about to bloom.  
Wildflowers are still looking gorgeous too!
The corn maze is AWESOME this year!! There are stalks over 10 ft tall and lots of sunflowers mixed in.  We highly encourage you to check it out when youre here.

Here are some pictures of our Autumn Beauty sunflowers and wild flowers.  The yellow sunflowers are a little behind at this time - hopefully they will be nice and full in a few weeks.
