2015 Corn Maize and Pick your own Pumpkin Patch
Open weekends in October through the 31st
Haunted Maize on October 29-31, 5-9pm hosted by New Sharon Fire Dept.
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 2015 Corn Maize celebrates Franklin County 4-H clubs and the role that 4-H plays in supporting agricultural communities like ours. Come out and support the 4-H program! Throughout the maze season, local 4-Hers will be leading demonstrations about their 4-H projects. As past 4-H members and leaders, the York family is pleased to support this important organization.
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. Back again this year will be Ox Cart rides each day from 11-2.
Credit cards WILL BE accepted this year for the first time. Cash or local checks are also accepted.
The Maize will be open from 10-4 on weekends in October. Opening day is October 3rd and the Maize will close on Halloween, October 31st.
The New Sharon Fire Department will again host a Haunted Maze from 5-9pm on Thursday, October 29; Friday the 30th and Saturday the 31st. New this year will be a small fireworks display at 9:00 on Halloween.
