Our weekend adventures seem that much sweeter this time of year, and New Jersey doesn’t disappoint when it comes to fun activities to do in summer. One of our late summer faves? Visiting the beautiful sunflower mazes and farms around New Jersey. We’ve rounded up a bunch of our favorite spots below (coordinated by county) to help make your planning easier. Be sure to bookmark this page as we update it throughout the season with new info that comes our way. We always recommend calling the sunflower farm on the morning of your visit to double-check opening times and confirm their sunflowers are in bloom. Don’t worry if you miss them, though—there’s plenty of other fun flowers and fruits to pick at most of these farms, too. Head over to The Best Pick Your Own guide to Pick Your Own Organic and Natural Farms In New Jersey for more PYO fun.
