Rain hampered the opening at the Sunflower Maze at Beaver Farms, but some folks couldn’t wait to get into the fields, even if they got caught in the rain.

Spenser Cass, who along with Lucas Beaver, operates the seasonal farm favorite, says that even with limited hours and scattered showers as they opened for the season on Sunday afternoon, customers came out and didn’t seem to mind getting caught in the rain. It’s a joyful place.

For this second year of the maze, Beaver and Cass planted even more sunflowers in both the maze and You Pick fields.

Cass said they also made more special places for photo ops throughout the maze, with such things as hay bales, swings, a table setting, and archways.

You can pick your own sunflowers without going through the maze for a $2 You Pick admission fee, then $1 per flower. The farm will provide cutters.

Some cut arrangements will be available for sale this weekend.

Both cash and credit cards are accepted, though there is a $5 minimum to use a card plus 2% in tax.

The farm will also be selling their beef and watermelons on site.
