Time For An Amazing Corn Maze

Fall is my favorite time of year, especially here in New England.  One of our favorite fall family traditions is visiting local corn mazes.  They are a special way for the entire family to experience a sense of adventure in the great outdoors!  Finding your way through cleverly shaped paths surrounded by towering stalks makes for a surreal experience. 

Lyman Orchards Corn Maze
As a Mom, I love that some education has been thrown in the mix.  Tasks like finding an "extraordinary legend" at Preston Farms or learning about the history of ice cream at the Fort Hill Farms keeps things interesting. 
Celebrate the UCONN Women's Basketball Team with a tribute to their outstanding two-season record at Lyman Orchards!  Foster Family Farm's is keeping it interesting by featuring over 4-miles of Egyptian Adventure Corn Maze trails.  

Want to support cancer research?  Plasko Farms donates a portion of it's corn maze ticket sales! 
St. Vincent's "Swim Across the Sound" cancer prevention and education programs benefit from your admission. 

There is something for everyone in the family!

Check out our list below of local corn mazes.  If you are lucky, you'll also find scarecrows, pumpkins, apple picking and maybe even a hay ride!
