Fun at The Farmstead

With the arrival of October, we had been looking forward to visiting The Farmstead, and last week turned out to be an ideal time to visit! The Farmstead is well-known in our area for its themed corn mazes. games, activities, pumpkin patch and oh-so-yummy goodies!

Summer has been taking its sweet time letting autumn make an entrance, which has been pretty wonderful in my opinion! Don’t get me wrong, I dearly love autumn — all the gorgeous colors, the cooler weather, baking while the rain drizzles down, but with outdoor activities that included a corn maze, pony rides, a grain train that takes you for a very scenic ride throughout a very large pumpkin patch and a potato sack slide,  I welcomed the 70° temperatures, sunshine and vibrant blue skies with open arms! It was kind of a summery-autumn blend of weather perfection!

We spent a relaxing afternoon enjoying everything The Farmstead had to offer, and what is especially impressive is the intricately-detailed corn mazes that they design each year! This years theme was Peter Pan and Tinkerbell, and let me say that even though maps are readily available, I’m so thankful my husband was there to take over the map and lead us! I’m pretty sure I would have had us lost even with a map in my hand, but it was all great fun!

Heading to the mazes!

It was a-maze-ing!

I believe the photo above was taken somewhere inside Peter Pan’s shoe? It was a little hard to tell, and after a while, I couldn’t help myself with all the corny puns. My family knew they would be coming sooner or later!

“Where are we? I’m corn-fused.”

“Doesn’t the sky look a-maze-ing?”

After the maze, we headed back to even more attractions that included the Bee-line (zip line), the potato sack slide, and the girls making “snow angels” in one of many corn boxes!

Our fun-filled afternoon was topped off with Brookie’s Cookies and ice-cream from the Cookie Creamery.

So delicious, and did I mention the cookies are baked right there and served fresh out of the oven?!
