About The Sunflowers

The sunflower festival is Bethanys passion... who is Bethany? She is the owner / operator of Quey's Maze Sunflower Festival! Bethany is a fourth generation Idaho farmer who took over her father's farm in 2020. Bethany’s father, Quey, started Quey’s Maze - Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch in 2007 and taught Bethany all about hosting agri-tourism events.

In 2019 Bethany planted a sunflower field for her enjoyment and had people stopping on the side of the road to take pictures and ask to walk through, or if they could buy the flowers. The potential was there for a commercial operation.

In 2020 Bethany planted a bigger patch and ran a small you-pick operation. With the passing of Quey in the Fall of 2020 Bethany took a break from sunflowers until August 2023 when she held the first official Sunflower Festival. With over 75 varieties of sunflowers on several acres of farm ground her vision of sharing joy through flowers was realized.

 
2024 is bigger and better so that more people enjoy the beauty and joy of sunflowers. New varieties, more flowers, more shade, more vendors, and more happy people will make your visit to this year's Sunflower Festival joyful. 


Bethany runs the 500 acre farm while managing the prepping, planting and growing of the sunflowers. The farm produces corn, silage, wheat, oats, barley, beans, sugar beats, mint, and hay. She is focused on healthy soil conservation and works with Desert Mountain Grass Fed Beef to pasture up to 500 head of cattle on her land. The cover crops hold the soil and feed the cattle. Recently Bethany started a new venture with her own herd of Japanese Tajima cows. 


One of Bethany's goals is to spread the joy of sunflowers to those in the community who are home bound or could use a little sunshine to brighten their day. Operation Sunflower was set up to invite the community to donate vases and to come pick sunflowers after the end of the festival then deliver them to the homebound. If you would like to be involved in Operation Sunflower this year, please bring your old vases to the sunflower festival to donate and follow us on Instagram or Facebook to be notified of our Operation Sunflower picking and delivering evening, once the Sunflower Festival has ended.
