We’re having a lot of fun doing new things as a family this summer. We went blueberry picking a few weeks ago so we decided to spend one of the last few weekends of summer exploring the Sunflower Maze at Lyman Orchards in Middlefield, CT. I’m always looking for a good photo opportunity and the sunflower maze did not disappoint.
Being a girl who was born and raised in Connecticut, I’m a little embarrassed to say that I’ve never been to Lyman Orchards. The property is huge and there is a ton of things to do. They have the sunflower maze, pick your own fruits and vegetables, a country market, and golf. We’ll have to come back in the fall to see what other great things they offer.
The maze features 350,000 beautiful sunflowers. It’s definitely a sight that shouldn’t be missed. I was expecting an easy quick maze but the sunflower maze was legit. We definitely got lost and our little ones got tired from all of the walking but it was a beautiful.
The sunflower maze is open every day from July 27 – August 28, 2016 from 9 am – 5 pm (last admission is 4:30 pm). There are several family-friendly special events going on during the weekends. Check the Lyman Orchards website for details.
Tickets for the maze can be purchased online or at the farm. $1 from each admission goes toward Connecticut Children’s Medical Center Pediatric Cancer Unit.
Adults – $10, Junior (4-12) – $5, Ages 3 & Under – Free
TIP: Bring your Big Y card or coins and save money on admission. Save $1 with a silver card or coin. Save $2 with a gold coin.
I hope you get a chance to experience the beauty of the sunflower maze with your family this summer.
