Hendren Farm Market in Licking County, Ohio offers the perfect day out this fall with a field of sunflowers, two corn mazes and a fresh produce market!
I had heard about Hendren Farm Market from multiple friends who had visited this month! After so many recommendations, I was convinced to make a visit to pick sunflowers! What I didn’t know was that we would end up also doing a corn maze, playing on the playground and buying several components to tonight’s dinner!
Hendren Farm was closed during the fall of 2019 due to the crazy rainy season that year, but this year pumpkins are planted and the market is back with a new crop: Sunflowers!
Pick Your Own Sunflowers
5 acres of sunflowers are available for you to wander through, take photos and pick your own! Peak sunflower season is usually mid-August and they don’t last long so make plans to see these soon!
- Admission to the sunflower field is $5 per person an includes 1 stem.
- Kids ages 3 and under free.
- Additional stems are $1 each.
- You can bring bring your own cutter, but when we visited cutters were available to borrow.
- They recommend bringing a jar or bucket of water to store your sunflowers in on the way home.
- Last tickets are sold one hour before closing.
Run Through Corn Mazes
Two corn mazes are available, a shorter and a longer maze. The corn maze is $5/person (Or $3/person if you’re also purchasing entrance to the sunflower field.) Each maze has a game component to it, something to look for while you’re walking through (or getting lost in) the corn field!
We chose the shorter maze. There were 6 signposts to find and each one had a raised paw print to etch onto your paper. We have a habit of getting majorly lost in corn mazes and someone always has to pee. This time it was me. We did manage to find 5 out of the 6 though! 🙂
Play on the Playground
Kids will love this large wooden play structure with two tube slides, swings and more! Also on the property are plastic tubes to roll around in and a small hill to make it extra fun! There is no cost to play on the playground!
Shop for Produce at the Market
The produce market has sweet corn, tomatoes, zucchini, melons, fry pies, green beans, farmhouse decor and more! Outside the market, there is a large patio for seating. You can bring your own packed lunch if you’d like! Hand sanitizer is on every table!
