Frequently Asked Questions
Do you charge sales tax?
Florida Sales Tax will be added to all admission prices, gift shop sales, and food prices at time of purchase. Currently this is 7.5%.
Do you close for rain?
Sweet Season Farms Corn Maze and Fall Fun Festival is an all outdoor activity and subject to the weather. We can handle a little rain, but if it rains too much or begins to storm, we will close with little to no notice. Sometimes this is only for a few minutes or could be for the remainder of the day. Check our Facebook page for real-time updates on any weather related closures. We do not give refunds, but will give a rain voucher to return another day during the season if you have just arrived.
Do you give refunds if it starts to rain?
We do not offer refunds, but if your visit is rained out part way through, we are happy to offer you a rain ticket to come back on another day.
What age is the farm for? Do adults have to pay to come in?
One of the great things about Sweet Season Farms is the fact that it offers something that everyone, of all ages, can enjoy. From babies, all the way up to grandma and grandpa, our goal is to make sure everyone in your group leaves with memories to cherish. Thus, yes, anyone ages 3 and up pays farm admission.
How big is the corn maze?
The corn maze is cut into a field that is a 10 acres in size. The corn maze itself is roughly 8 acres.
How long does it take to get through the corn maze?
Well this, of course, depends on your choices. Our experience is that most people enjoy 30-45 minutes of getting lost and so we aim for that as the average time when creating the maze. Of course, we do have Corn Cops to help you if you are completely corn-fused. Don’t worry, we won’t leave you out there overnight!
We also have a very simple and short pathway - the Kiddie Maze - for the little ones who want the experience of the corn but primarily want to enjoy the other activities. And for 2021, we offer a walking trail around the border of the maze through the sunflowers for those who want a leisurely stroll or photos, without the fear of being lost!
What do you do with the corn at the end of the season?
Our corn and sunflowers are harvested each year for cattle feed. Unlike humans, cows eat the corn after it is good and dry, which means it is perfect for harvesting after the maze season.
Can I eat the corn?
Well, you could, but it would not taste very good. We ask that you do not pick the corn in the maze so that we can save it all for the cattle. The corn we plant for the maze is called field corn and more suited to cattle feed, so it is not as sweet and tender as the corn you are used to eating. We do sell roasted sweet corn at the farm during our festival and highly suggest purchasing it to eat instead.
Is there food available at the farm?
You better believe it! We serve a variety of food like hamburgers and fries, shish ka bobs, fresh roasted sweet corn, and lots of goodies. Or stop by the Sunflower Sweet Shoppe and Bakery walk up window for iced cold lemonade or sweet tea and a yummy treat! Bring your appetite!
Can I bring my own food to the farm?
Yes, you are welcome to bring your own picnic lunch, cupcakes, or whatever your group needs (no alcohol, please). We do not, however, have electrical capacity for crock pots or water pots, nor do we allow cooking on site.
I am a professional photographer. Can I bring clients out to your farm and take pictures?
We love the creativity of photography and have seen some wonderful pictures of families at our farm. We do allow you to take photos of your clients. Please see our photography page on the website for more details or email us at email@example.com
Can I bring my pet?
While we love animals, unfortunately we cannot allow pets at Sweet Season Farms. Service animals are always allowed.
Is the corn maze wheelchair/stroller accessible?
Many people bring wheelchairs and strollers through the corn maze and the other attractions. The ground tends to be uneven and bumpy in places, especially in the corn maze itself. With that being said, if you are up for the adventure, we say, “Come on out!”
Do you have bathrooms?
We do have port-a-potties all around the farm. We also have hand washing sinks available beside of them with soap and water and hand sanitizer located around the farm as well.
Do I have to go in the corn maze with my child?
Children 15 and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times in the maze and on the farm. You must be 16 years or older to go in the maze without parental supervision.
All farm rules must be followed:
Please stay on the pathways. Everyone who goes into our maze has eventually come out, so we promise there is a way out. Cutting through the rows won’t help–and if a corn cop catches you, it may just hurt!
No picking or throwing corn. We realize you can do more with corn than just eat it–why else would we be crazy enough to cut a maze into it? But throwing corn is still one thing we won't allow. If it hits someone, it hurts! If you have an uncontrollable urge to launch an ear of corn, please visit our Corn Cannon once you exit the maze.
No running. Please remember that this is not a race. Take your time and watch your step on the pathways. Walking through a cornfield is not like walking on a sidewalk. There are a few bumps along the way, we just don’t want you to be one of them.
No smoking. Smoking on Sweet Season Farms grounds is prohibited. Corn stalks and cigarettes are a bad combination.
No alcohol. This isn’t a field of hops! Sweet Season Farms provides good fun for all ages, including children. In consideration of all maze-goers, alcohol is not allowed on premises.
No littering. For your convenience, there are garbage cans all around the farm. Our corn cops will be hot on the trail of anyone caught littering.
No inappropriate language. Please be mindful of others and watch what you say. We know it can be a challenge in there (it was designed to be that way), but remember that no one likes to hear bad language and our corn has very sensitive ears.
Kiddie playground is for kids only. We know that adults are often kids at heart, however, the playground equipment is designed for the little ones only.
