Awesome corn maze! Fun for the whole family. The coupon hunt through the maze is really cute. I like the Chevy coupon, test drive a car and get a $25 walmart gift card! Only $7.50 for adults with group discount we got. Highly recommended!

This is a great place for families to get away from the hustle of the city. They have quite a few activities for children, including a tube slide, hay tunnels, sand box, trike riding, and hay rides. It's not a bad way to spend an afternoon.

Had the best experience here- loved the corn maze with the local business coupons to punch at different checkpoints- great incentive to navigate with intention! We also enjoyed collecting pumpkins from the maze and loved the food too! What an awesome place!

Up sale everything and had buses block the exit took 45 mins to get them out of the way so cars could finally leave and tried to voice complaint to employee and was told they were more concerned with taking care of the people coming in on buses because that's good money. Really??? Will not go back after paying my money for my family that as far as I know isn't any different than someone coming in on a bus. Completely disrespectful and lack of care. Plenty of other places to spend my money. Stoney creek farm is a bit farther but worth it after this experience

Great place for a fall family adventure! Fun activities for adults and children of all ages. Pumpkin patch, corn maze, fire pits, wagon rides, concessions, and loads of other fun activities! We go every year. Wouldn't miss it!
