Important things to know:

  • The ground is farm group and can be uneven in places. The paths are narrow and are not suitable for strollers.
  • Pets are not permitted in the maze (or at the orchard in general) due to all the food safety regulations we must comply with.
  • We’ve had lots of questions from professional photographers, because of the crowds on sunflower fest Saturday no photo sessions are allowed on this day.  However, info is coming soon for those who want to book weekday times for photo shoots in the sunflower maze.  Here is a link to the photo policy for these types of things: https://www.indianapolisorchard.com/photo-policy/
