A recently discovered alternative to the indoors, going “outside” offers adventurous explorers exposure to things such as wind, sunshine, and the naturally occurring mazes found in cornfields. Leave the indoors with today’s Groupon to Clodbuster Farms in Kernersville. Choose between the following options:
- For $6, you get corn maze admission for two (a $12 value).
- For $10, you get corn maze admissions and a hayride for two (a $20 value). Hayrides are by appointment only.<p>
At Clodbuster Farms, families delight in an array of autumnal amusements ranging from pumpkin picking to classic games of horseshoes and corn toss. Maze explorers test their inner navigation systems by plotting routes through twisting, turning, and towering husks relying only on their sense of direction and mysterious whispers borne by errant Iowa winds. Friday and Saturday evenings invite visitors to stalk the stalks with flashlights for a spookier experience (bring from home or rent for $1), and campfires awaits to reward those liberated from the labyrinth with toasted marshmallows and roasted hot dogs. Harvest-goers looking for a leisurely ride around the fifth-generation family farm can hit the hay in a hay ride, before capping the fall festivities by perusing the pumpkin patch for a perfect carving candidate priced according to its size and signing ability.
Five generations of the Sells family have tilled the land, including Clodbuster Farms’ current owner, Zane Sells, who hopes to continue that tradition well into the future. The farm hosts a pick-your-own strawberry patch, seasonal produce, and greenhouse tomatoes. The farm’s store stocks everything from its own products to locally made jelly, pickles, and honey, in addition to feed for picky animals that also prefer locally sourced fodder. At the end of the year, the Sells family puts on a fall celebration, inviting guests to take a spin on the hayride, find their way through the corn maze, and tell spooky stories by the campfire. The crisp fall weather and the changing colors of the farm scenery make the perfect backdrop for guests to stock up on pumpkins, play a round of corn hole, and roast marshmallows for s’mores.
