Thanks for a great season!
Posted 01 November 2016
That's all, folks!
The 2016 corn maze has now come to a close. It was an excellent season – albeit a slightly damp one – but we never let the rain dampen our spirits!
We saw a great turnout at the pumpkin patch, the haunted house, and of course the corn maze.
Thanks for everything
A big thank-you to everyone who visited the farm this season – we wouldn't be hear without your support.
And if you weren't able to make it this year, we'll be back in the Fall of 2017 with a new field of corn and a new maze – we hope to see you then.
In the meantime we'd also like to take a moment to highlight a few causes that mean a lot to us.
