Florida is known for its shimmering coastal beaches and crisp inland springs, but we Sunshine Staters often forget that there are some hidden inland gems that stand out. If you're wanting to challenge your brain in the most beautiful way, this Florida farm has a stunning yellow sunflower maze!
When we think Florida, we certainly don't think of farms, but Florida does have a few hidden gems that bring floral rural living to the Sunshine State. Sweetfield Farms in Masaryktown is one of the cutest little organic grown u-pick farms hidden away in the Florida countryside!
Every May they have their spring farm-fun season; With the month coming to a close we only have a few more visits left for this year's spring season to enjoy towering rows of yellow and green floral gems! The sunflowers on this farm get HUUUGE, and they're a beautiful bright yellow - like sunshine on a stem.
You can pick some sun topped stems for your BFF, boo, or own vase back home from the sunflower garden; or you can try to find your way out of the living labyrinth sunflower maze, with dense gatherings of sunflowers lining the paths - surrounding yourself with all of the sunshine vibes. Some of their sunflowers stand as tall as 10 feet!
Whichever way you decide to experience the farm, you'll be able to get some of the cutest shots of these big yellow bois!
Sweetfield also gathers produce such as banana peppers, basil, various types of squashes, cucumbers, and green tomatoes that will be for sale. You even have the option to go picking in the fields for your own. Availability of U-pick and Gathered produce will depend on how much was purchased and picked the following day.
The farm is only open on weekends, Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 4 pm to frolic the fields! The last admissions being allowed in at 3 pm. The only exception to their weekend only hours is the final day of their Spring Season. The season will come to a close on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27th - the final day to enjoy the spring maze and to pick your own goodies.
Admission into Sweetfield farms is really affordable at only $9.50 for adults and only $5 for kids aged 3-11; Admission also includes a lot of extras aside from the fields and produce. Your admission price includes the sunflower maze, the hayride, a visit with the animals, a duck race, free picnic area, web maze, and a free craft and play area.
The farm has food & drink vendors on site, including options such as lemonade (and wine!), kettle-corn, and pizza - so you can stop and grab a bite to eat after all of your farm-fun, or pack your own picnic to enjoy a picnic date on the farm with your boo. Purchased produce will be at additional cost. You can also purchase a produce launcher experience to get your frustrations out, get creative by painting a pot, hat, or stepping stone to take home, or animal feed to feed the animals during your farm meet and greet.
