Corn Maze

Are you ready to get lost? Try navigating this 15-acre labyrinth!

Mazes have been around for centuries but corn mazes are relatively new. Since 1993, they have gained worldwide popularity providing a source of healthy and wholesome entertainment for the entire family.

Our 2014 maze consists of three puzzles containing over 5 miles of winding pathways in a 15-acre field of corn, one of the largest in the the area.

Within each puzzle, there are checkpoints with a different shaped punch at each station. Guests track their progress through the maze by punching a card given to them at the entrance to the maze. Staff and maps are stationed throughout the maze to assist guests.

The popular game FSI, or Farm Scene Investigation, is back this year. Farmer Joe is missing. There was an accident, and it appears to be foul play. There are seven farm animal suspects that we need you to investigate. Collect the evidence to find the weapon, the suspect, and the location where the crime took place. You will find six location scenes within the corn maze. At each scene, you will find an animal, a weapon and a location to eliminate. Punch your card to keep track of your clues. But hurry. Help us solve the mystery and put the guilty farm animal behind bars and save Farmer Joe.

Pumpkin Patch 

The time of year is approaching when everyone is getting ready for the festive harvest season and no home decoration would be complete without a pumpkin or two.

Whether you’re hunting the perfect pumpkin to accompany some mums and hay or looking for the best jack-o-lantern host, we have all sizes and shapes to satisfy the pickiest of choosers.

The pumpkin patch is located adjacent to the corn maze this year so you can walk right out in the patch and pick your prize yourself!

This year’s crop should be ready around the second week in October.

Fun time for kids of all ages! A nice 20 minute hay ride, several mazes to go through, a nice play area for toddlers and younger kids, and a fun jumping pillow for kids of all ages! Add some good homemade goodies to the mix and some refreshments from the stand you have a wonderful way to spend a day or evening with your family! And springtime and summer is also great for other produce too! Always a favorite place for our family!
