“ONE DAY FAMILY VACATION!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2013

Had heard about their Fall corn maze but then learned they do a SPRING sunflower maze, too! We were there on Sunday and spent about six hours "doing" things..

MAZE takes about an hour to do. They lady at entrance gives you a list of questions. If you answer a question yes, you go left and no goes right at the junction. There are junctions with no questions, so we took turns hitting dead ends and our laughter could be heard outside the maze.

STORYTELLER: He has a bench in front of him and when the bench fills up, he thrills you with good old fashion story telling, some of which he made up on the spot. Delightful old gentleman who enjoys his craft. I bought both of his CDs (not required) at $10/each.

SCAVENGER HUNT: Be sure to bring a camera along for this part. You have to take pics of the item to show when you get back to start point-approx 15 minutes-lots of running around and our family was the lucky team-We won a basket of fresh from the field green beans!

POTATO SACK RACE: We all remember this one-prize was bag of kettle corn.

WATER PUMP DUCK RACE: Clever old time water pumpers that push the duck to the other end of pvc pipe.

PIG RACE: The children cheer the pigs along

Lots of photo ops here with the cut out face for your child or you but a different one is where you lure the billy goat (see pics) to put his head through

There's a tree house, a hay ride, flower pot painting ($3) and much more to see and do.

The only food they sold were 2-Nathan Hot dogs, with chips and drink for $10-a bit pricy.
Pack a picnic, take bottle drinks, wear closed toe shoes and hat and have a wonderful time!

They have a list of what veggies and fruits are ready for picking. You pick it at one price or you can buy it at $1 more if they pick it and put it in barn (see pic)Never saw such a beautiful barn before.

$8.50 per adult

Check their site-Are in Masaryktown not Brooksville off Route 41

Warning: Bathrooms are Port-o-potties

“Amazing jewel in the middle of no where”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013 via mobile

Beautiful family owned farm. Down home and simple. We did the night time corn maze. A group of people were there with alcohol they snuck in making a lot of noise and doing something's that really shouldn't be done in public and the owner addressed it right away. Very professional. His daughter was there helping and was sweet and cute as can be. Such a fantastic place and well run. Can't wait for the night maze this year.

“Fun for ALL!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

My best friend and I went to the farm on 11/3/12, a trip we had planned for two months, attempting to fit it into our busy schedules. It was well worth the wait and planning. We arrived in the early afternoon; a time that seemed to be perfect with just the right number of people there. After paying our entry fee of $8.50 each, we entered through the barn. The hayride was just arriving from the corn maze so we were able to jump right on and make our way over to the maze. After receiving our instructions and clues, we began our journey through the maze. We were so disappointed in the "destruction" created by previous people, with the farm owners having to put up barriers of tape discouraging others from creating the same "shortcuts" in the maze. These previous people had basically trampled down large areas of the maze in order to find their way through without actually using the path created by the farm owners. This really saddened us because it ruins things for anyone who comes to the maze after this destruction has happened. We gave a lot of props to the owners who really tried to fix these areas without disrupting the flow of the maze.
After completing the maze, we walked around the farm to visit the various areas. Our first stop was to see Rosie Moo Moo, the farm's pregnant and very cute cow. Rosie is used as one of the clues in the maze, which helps kids and adults alike see the pairing of the maze with the farm's residents.
Next, we decided to go around to look at the fields of produce, or at least what was left. This also allowed us to take some pictures of various parts of the farm. We learned that nearly all of the animals on the farm are female, all except the roosters! We decided that the goats were the silliest of all the animals, with the three little potbellied pigs being the funniest. We watched the three little oinkers (Peanut, Butter and Jelly) race around the track for a best of three race. Yaaay for Butter who won two of the three races!
While we were there, we watched several pumpkin races, from visitors both young and old, and everyone seemed to enjoy this activity!
The farm has various food and drink available for purchase, as well as a limited supply of apple cider (this apple season has been particularly difficult for farmers nationwide).
All in all we had a wonderful time at the farm and have made plans to come back for the Sunflower Maze in the early summer months. We are also looking forward to coming back to pick some wonderful produce, most especially blackberries in June.
Should you want a place for the whole family to enjoy, you wont be disappointed in Sweetfields Farm!! (To give you an idea of what age(s) will enjoy the farm, my friend and I are in our late 40's!!)

Great Pumpkin Patch. Hayrides, Corn Maze and so much more for the little ones to do. Really feels like fall when you visit the farm.

Best place for hours to see pumpkins, mazes, animals, and hayrides. They even grill hamburgers and pulled pork for lunch. Cider and snacks too. Kids ran around for 2 hours loving this farm
