Upon entry, families can load their kids into a Red Rider wagon and explore the 300-acre property, which contains two corn mazes, a tractor wagon course, a pumpkin patch, grounds for playing games, a craft barn, and numerous other activities added for the 2013 festival. Visitors are welcome to bring leashed pets to a handful of areas, and can leave and return freely throughout the course of one day. The festival runs from Saturday, September 21, through Sunday, October 27.

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.

Great place to go with the kids --- added a ton of activities since our last visit. Had a blast, slides and animals, new bouncy fun, animals, new store --- great afternoon. We will go back! Only suggestion is better bathroom facilities, port a pots are kind of gross. Not that theirs were dirty but port a pot dirty you know.
