Explore the Sunflower and Corn Mazes of New Jersey! (2018)

When I see a sunflower field, it makes me happy! The brilliant colors of the flower and the thousands of seeds in the center create a delightful sight. Each summer season, farms around New Jersey bring these beautiful sights to you.

In August 2013, the owner of the Sussex County Sunflower Maze invited us to visit their great location. This was the first time we had ever been to a sunflower maze, and fell in love immediately.

Ever since that first visit, we have tried to share this fun season with as many people as we can. Below we've compiled a list of sunflower mazes and corn mazes to take you from summer fun into the fall festival season. We will update this list as we learn about more fun places for you to Get Outside! If you know of any to add, please let us know!

Please Note: Sunflowers usually bloom from mid August to the first frost. Depending on the weather the blooms may only last few a few weeks. Corn mazes may last much longer, offering a fun day of exploration into the fall season. Please plan accordingly.

Donaldson Farms

Hackettstown, Warren County, NJ

Sunflowers: Donaldson Farms is pleased to offer fun and picturesque tours of approximately 20 acres of Black-Oil Sunflowers that are planted throughout our farm during the late summer and early fall! The Black Oil sunflower seeds have very thin shells, easy for virtually all seed-eating birds to crack open, and the kernels within have a high-fat content, extremely valuable for birds, especially as food during migration and winter. They also attract more of a variety of bird species than other seed varieties. Visit our farm enjoy the bloom of acres and acres of sunflowers in and around our farm!

Corn Maze: 9-acres of fun that the kids will love! Put on your comfortable walking shoes and venture into our corn maze! It takes an average of 45 minutes to an hour complete. If kids surrender, just take an 'easy' exit! Donaldson Farms is pleased to share that 1 dollar from every entry into our corn maze this season will be donated to Tomorrows Childrens Fund!
