Description: Open seasonally August through October.
August: Plan a trip with family or friends to their 10 acre sunflower field. Walk 4 miles of sprawling paths as you take unforgettable pictures among 24 varieties of sunflowers. U-pick flowers may be purchased by the blossom or by packages that include a French bucket. You may also fill your own five gallon bucket for a fee. For your convenience, food and merchandise vendors will be on site Friday through Sunday, while Exploration Acres is open.
Mid September-October: Northwest Indiana's Largest Corn Maze, 18 acres with 8.8 miles of paths, has 5 mazes. Run through the straw bale maze, then visit the 18-acre corn maze with over 8 miles of twists and turns, test your skill at a pedal car race, fire a three-ear corn cannon salute or just dive into a mound of hay. Pick a pumpkin from the Pumpkin Patch and lunch at one of the open fire pits. Fun for the entire family. See website for exact days and times.
