ABOUT DEEP ROOTS PRODUCE:
If you’re looking for a down-to-earth place to find farm fun around Grand Rapids, you need to check out Deep Roots.
You won’t find a bunch of ticketed activities at Deep Roots Produce (other than the corn maze), and we think that adds to its charm.
Find friendly goats, corn hole, picnic tables, great produce, and photo stations.
Fans say the sunflower fields are the best in the area. For the best pics, schedule an after-hours photo shoot ($35).
Photo ops galore!
Petting zoo with goats and alpacas.
Dramatic sunflower field maze.
Corn maze and themed maze nights.
Fall Activities at Deep Roots
Come see their dramatic 2.5 acre sunflower maze with 15 different varieties of sunflowers of all heights and colors.
You can walk the maze, take lots of cool photos with props along the way, or pick your own bunch of sunshine to take home.
The sunflowers are a paid attraction. Walking the maze and photo ops are $8/person during business hours or $35/party for sunset sessions (1 hr access after close).
U-Pick sunflower pricing is $1.50/bloom or $15/bucket. (Must use Deep Roots’ buckets to pick into but then you can transfer them to your own after picking or Deep Roots can wrap them for you.)
To maintain the beauty of the field, the farm will have specific spots where U-Pick is allowed. Please watch for blocked off sections at times.
2022’s maze design spells out “Deep Roots.”
Photographers will be allowed to take photos by scheduling time slots; check the Facebook page for more information.
This popular sunflower field destination is worth a trip for this alone, and they have so much more to offer visitors!
