Come get lost with us on our 10th Anniversary!
Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays: September 26 - October 26, 2014
Join us for a walk through our very own West Farm themed (2.8 miles) corn maze. We have a smaller (.3 mile) corn maze in the shape of a pumpkin for our smallest visitors. This pumpkin is a part of our field trip rotation! Our 6-acre corn maze has been designed, mapped, and cut by MazePlay of Firth, Idaho, using the latest GPS technology. You'll have to use your best map-reading skills to reach all checkpoints in the corn field!
We've once again included FSI: Farm Scene Investigation. 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 and the location where the crime took place. You will find six location scenes within the corn maze. At each location you will find an animal and a tool to eliminate as a suspect and a weapon. Punch your card to keep track of your clues. Solve the mystery, put those guilty farm animal behind bars, and save Farmer Joe.
Our good friends and fellow young farmers, The Wilson's, from Cotton Hills Farm in Lowrys, SC grow all our pumpkins. We are proud to support this family farm and know you agree that they grow the best pumpkins in the state! Please visit their website at www.cottonhillsfarm.com.
Children's Hay Bale Maze, Play Area, Covered Corn Kernel Box and The Tire Climb!
Our youngest visitors will love getting lost in the hay bale maze and playing in the hop ball park. We're especially happy about adding a second corn kernel box exclusively for our 2 and under visitors. The original one will still be available for our visitors of all ages. We also have The Tire Climb for kids of all ages from 1-99!
Have you seen any farm animals up close lately? Enjoy a visit with our cows, goats, pig, sheep and chickens. We can promise you the sights, sounds, and smells of a real farm!
Enjoy a relaxing hay ride around the perimeter of the corn maze and into the woods. You'll enjoy a slow ride on a real wagon, sitting on real hay, pulled by a real New Holland tractor. It may be your legs' favorite part of the day!
Visit Scarecrow Alley and vote for the best-dressed scarecrow. The scarecrows with the top three number of votes will take home prizes. If your school class or club, scout troop, church group, or any other organized group would like to enter a scarecrow in the contest, please click on the "Scarecrows" link above for more information.
Over the last few years, you've gotten good at the slingshot. So we had to make it harder. You get 3 tries for $2, with some pretty fabulous prizes on the line.
Snack Bar and Picnic Area
After tackling the maze, stop by our snack bar for some refreshing treats in our picnic area! We have everything to drink from soft drinks to juice boxes to bottled water and everything to eat from chips to trail mix to candy bars to candy, all at reasonable prices.
We are excited to announce that The Farmer's Wife, the West Farm Cafe & Market's Mobile Cafe, will be our food vendor this year. So come HUNGRY!!
