Corn Maize and Pick your own Pumpkin Patch.
We are pleased to be partnering with United Farmer Veterans of Maine this year
Sandy River Farms will again be hosting an “Amazing Maize” on our ten acre corn field south of the farm at 755 Farmington Falls Road. The Maize is a series of paths cut into the cornfield and will provide ample fun for young and old. In addition to the maize, the annual “Pick your own Pumpkin” patch will be adjacent to the Maize field with an old-fashioned hayride between the two. We have thousands of pumpkins in all shapes and sizes...come and get your Jack-o-lantern for Halloween!
The 2016 Corn Maize celebrates the Maine chapter of United Farmer Veterans (http://www.facebook.com/UnitedFarmerVeterans/) which supports veterans who want to farm in Maine. Throughout the maize season, various veteran advocacy groups will be at the maize sharing the work they do to support the state of Maine and veterans in our communities. The York family is pleased to support farmer veterans this season. All active duty military and veterans will have free entry into the maze with their ID.
The Corn Maize will cost $8.00 for adults and children over age 10 and $4.00 for children younger than 10. Children under 3 will be free.
Cost also includes parking, a free hayride, petting zoo of farm animals, an obstacle course and corn box. New this year will be a moon bounce for the younger set. Back again this year will be Ox Cart rides each day from 11-2.
Credit cards WILL BE accepted. Cash or local checks are also accepted.
The Maize will be open from 10-4 on weekends in October. Opening day is October 1st and the Maize will close on October 30th.
