Corn and Hay Mazes

Even if it is only a degree or two cooler, we are loving the fact that it is (sort of) showing signs that fall is upon us.  One of our favorite things to do in the fall is visit the corn mazes around the area.  My son is a maze aficionado.  He loves them and can find the way out like a rat following the smell of the cheese at the end of the maze!  Here are a few of the corn mazes in our area.

As always, we recommend that you follow the links or call ahead for more information and to confirm dates and times.

Sweet Seasons Corn Maze, Milton, Florida – This was probably the most challenging maze that we visited last year.  Sweet Seasons Farm puts on quite a show and you could spend all day visiting.  The Grand Opening is September 25th and they will be open each Saturday and Sunday from then until their closing day, October 31.  Their attractions include the maze, a corn cannon, the cow train, a hayride and a playground.  This year they are adding a mini hay bale maze and you can purchase Scout patches if you finish the maze!  Before you go, make sure you print the coupon!  Read our 2009 review of the Sweet Seasons Corn maze.

Maizing Family Farm, Elberta, AL – We enjoyed this maze last year because we were lucky to be there at a time when it was not crowded so the kids were able to wander through the maze on their own after we went through it together.  Their opening day is October 1 and they will continue through the month until October 31.  Their attractions include the maze, a corn cannon, a playground, tractor drawn wagon rides, and animals.  This year they will also have a sunflower “sea” as well as an ornamental corn and gourd patch.  See our 2009 review of the Maizing Family Farm Corn Maze.

Dixon Primary’s Haystackular, Pace, FL – The PTO of Dixon Primary is putting on the first annual Haystackular Hay Maze.  Opening day will be October 1 and the maze will continue through the month.  There will be different events, fall activities and food available. 

Magnolia Corn Maze, Magnolia Springs, AL –  Opening day is September 25th and the maze will continue through October 31.  There will be different activities including trick or treating, a haunted maze, and a food drive throughout the month.  Other activities include the cow train, corn cannon and games.

Seward Farms, Lucedale, MS – This trip clocks in at about 1-1.5 hours depending on where you live but this corn maze comes recommended by a friend so I wanted to add it to the list.  This appears to be the longest running maze in our area as it opens September 11 and stays open through November 6.  Activities include the maze, Animal Farm Alley, hayrides, a corn cannon, a U-pick Wildflower Patch, and more.
