Sweetfields Farm Sunflower Maze

Lisa Kessel (owner) with the girls.
What a great time we had on Ted and Lisa Kessel's Sweetfields Farm at the Sunflower Maze. We took our family for an adventure on the farm. It was a full day of fun. The farm is about 30 minutes north of Tampa in Masaryktown. The sunflowers were beautiful about 10-12 feet high covering about five acres of land.

This is the last weekend it is open June 2 and June 3. It may be open one more weekend depending how how good the sunflowers look.  

You will want to get there early before it starts to get hot. We got there around 10am and it was perfect weather. It is open from 10am to 5pm.
There is a lot to do. We started off with the storyteller.
He was fantastic!



We watched the pig races. Yes, real live pigs racing around the pen. Their names were Peanut, Butter and Jelly. I won’t tell you who won!

We did the sunflower maze. It took us about an hour to do because we got lost at the end of it. It really only takes about 15-20 minutes if you get it right. It was fun even though we got lost.

We fed the cows. We bought the homemade organic lemonade to refresh ourselves.  You can bring your own picnic lunch or you can buy lunch there. There are plenty of picnic benches.
We decided to take the hayride around the farm. We also had the girl's faces painted. This was $5 for both of them. The lady did a great job.

There are a few swings and a beautiful wood playhouse for the kids to climb on.
There is also a place where you can paint sunflower pots and stones. The painting will cost you between $3 -$5.  You can also plant your  own sunflower seed in a rolled up newspaper. This was free to do.

After all of this, we decide to go and pick some organic vegetables for dinner. Let me tell you, I have never seen such huge vegetables. The girls loved doing this. It was a lot of fun.

The vegetables were a dollar a piece. Well worth it!
Our day was so relaxing and calm. It was just a great way to spend time with the family outdoors. What a beautiful farm! We can’t wait to go in October for the corn maze!
