Fall Farm Visits

Crazy about sunflower fields and cornmazes?

Then our Triple Play of Mazes & More is right for you! We have planted three 15-min one-way labyrinths around the farm for you to enjoy this summer and fall. Your maze pass also includes a choice of three activities to enjoy either at home or at the farm. Choose to make and take a real scarecrow, go gem mining at the Lost Lemon Mine, OR take home a gem mine kit to enjoy at home, OR pick out some pumpkins from our piles on bales inside spacious heated greenhouses! We appreciate your support during these challenging times.

Please note: the playgrounds, play-structures, train, petting farm, haunted house, gem mine, and other high-contact activities will remain closed for the season.
