From August 21 to September 19 (a week before Pumpkin Patch season), La Union Maze is giving you the opportunity to load up on lavender, gather Zinnias and stock up on sunflowers now in full bloom.

A variety of tomatoes and tomatillos are also (ahem) ripe for the picking.

The beautiful, locally grown flowers not only look amazing on your social media page, fresh flowers also brighten your home and are colorful mood-boosters and stress-reducers. And that’s not just my opinion, that’s science, baby.

How 'U-Pick Flowers and Tomatoes' Works

Time to visit will be by reservation only and scheduled the same way the farm sold pumpkins last fall. You go online, choose an available date and time and purchase your ticket(s).

Cost is $25 per vehicle (no more than 6 people per vehicle), which applies to your first $25 worth of flowers and/or tomatoes. If you go over, no worries, pay for it onsite. Reserve a U-Pick time HERE.

Days and Times

Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., August 21 through September 19.

What You Should Probably Bring with You

Bring your gardening gloves, garden shears, comfortable shoes, floppy gardening hat or baseball cap, water, and sunscreen if you burn easily.

Pets are not allowed at La Union Maze, with the exception of service dogs. Kids are optional.

What If I Want Flowers But I Don’t Want to Pick?

If you prefer not to get your hands dirty or are anti-floppy hat, you can buy tomatoes and flowers from the produce stand. There is no entrance fee for that.
