OTHER THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU VISIT:

Visit our Farm Store for lots of summer produce grown right here at the orchard including our award winning sweet corn.  We also have produce and items from local farms and artisans.

Visit our Cafe for lunch made with produce grown right here at the orchard.  We believe in fresh local ingredients, and a great farm experience.  See menu here (changes weekly).

IMPORTANT INFO:  

  • In the event that we get a lot of heavy rain the sunflower field can be muddy.
  • The sunflower trail is in an agricultural field.  The ground can be uneven in places.  There can also be mud if it has rained a lot. The paths are narrow and are not suitable for strollers.  Bees and other insects also love sunflowers so it is normal to have insects in the sunflower field as well…typically the bees are more interested in the flowers than the people…but those with severe bee allergies should be aware that there will be bees present.
  • The trail will be CLOSED if any RAIN (even light rain) or lightning.
  • No outside food is permitted at the farm but check out our Farm to Table Cafe for lunch.  They also have our famous apple cider slushies to enjoy.
  • For your safety, there is ABSOLUTELY NO ENTRY into the sunflower trail area (even just for photos) during any times that the trail is not open.  There are NO EXCEPTIONS to this policy.
  • NO PETS are permitted in the sunflower trail area or in any growing areas on the farm.  This area is considered a food production area by the USDA and no pets are permitted due to food safety regulations.
  • We’ve had lots of questions from professional photographers.  Yes, you are welcome to take photos, however, photos can be taken in the maze ONLY by those who have PAID ADMISSION and ONLY during the hours the maze is OPEN.  Photographers MUST also comply with policies listed in our photo policy….please read this for more info: https://www.indianapolisorchard.com/photo-policy/
