“This festival has something for everyone,” according to, which lauded Pumpkin Daze’s hayrides. Each ticket grants unlimited all-day access to these attractions and nearly a dozen others. Upon entry, families can load their kids into a Red Rider wagon and explore the 300-acre property, which contains a 10-acre corn maze, a hayride course, a pumpkin patch, and grounds for playing games. Visitors are welcome to bring leashed pets to a handful of areas, and can leave and return freely throughout the course of one day.

Abbey Farms of Marmion Abbey

For more than 50 years, the monks of Marmion Abbey have tended 300 acres of farmland. They started with Christmas trees, and now maintain 120 acres of pines, spruces, and firs that smell exactly like car freshener. On the remaining acres, they tend pumpkin vines and corn mazes, interspersing these areas with scenic groves.

Throughout the year, the monks open their land to the public. In the autumn, they host Pumpkin Daze, a harvest festival with tractor wagon rides and a petting zoo. Around mid-November, they grant access to their tree farm, supplying visitors with rental saws for you-cut trees and bellowing "Timber!" just like Paul Bunyan did when he fell into bed at night. The monks stock their farm store with family-friendly products from local artists and handcrafted goods that complement the season, such as caramel apples in the fall.

Customer Reviews

Great place! Our kids loved it.

For the past few year, my two children and 4 of our neighbor children have made Abbey Farms an annual outing before Halloween. The kids ask me about it each year and always look forward to going. It is a fun day of running around and playing. A highlight of the season.
