If you don’t mind a bit of a drive, this farm is worth the fun.

On weekends, the Pumpkin Grill is open, serving grilled corn, hot dogs, PB&J, drinks and chips.

With the maze in the shape of Texas, this year’s theme is Presidents – maze-goers will be looking for towns (that exist in the real state of Texas) whose name resembles a past President or Vice President. Start with a map, find each of the twelve towns and receive a “punch” for each town. Find them all to win a free soda or water. This is a complex maze that takes a bit of work and time to complete, but fun nonetheless.

 

Open Monday – Saturday except Wednesdays from 8:30am – 5:30pm, Sundays from 1pm – 5pm. CLOSED Wednesdays.

Admission is FREE. Just pay for the activities you wish to do, anywhere from $3.00 to $16.50.
