2014 Corn Maize and Pick your own Pumpkin Patch
Building on our success for the past five years, Sandy River Farms will again be hosting an “Amazing Maize” on a 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 2014 Corn Maize highlights the Franklin County Animal Shelter which has been providing temporary care and shelter to stray, homeless and abandoned animals since 1974. The York family is pleased to support this important non-profit organization in the Farmington community.
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 a free hayride, petting zoo of farm animals, an obstacle course and corn box. Credit cards are not accepted. Cash or local checks will be accepted.
The Maize will be open from 10-4 on weekends starting the last weekend in September (27 & 28) through the last weekend in October (25 & 26).
The Maize will close on rainy days. Check the website for last minute rain closures.
No pets or alcohol are allowed in the Maize.
Other fun activities include a corn box for the little ones to play in (think sand box with corn), an obstacle course for kids to run and play on and a food concession stand with homemade goodies as well as hamburgers, hot dogs and fries for a “picnic in the cornfield.” Pumpkins will cost 35¢ per pound.
The eight car "Cow Train" will be available again this year. Rides are $2.00 per person for young or old alike.
