Green Hand Farm Park is a fully functional farm and garden center that opens its grounds to the public every fall for family fun. Guests can visit the park throughout the fall to maneuver through an intricate 7.5-acre corn maze, whose pathways uncover clues, secret puzzles, and warring colonies of lost explorers. Maze hours are extended until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights for flashlight nights, during which guests can prowl the maze in a more dramatically lit fashion. After escaping the maze, visitors can peruse a wholesome menu of other activities, including a mini corn maze, a straw maze, a verdant garden center, and a farmers' market. On the way out, each duo gets a small pumpkin to take home as a keepsake or to claim as a dependent on tax forms.
Green Hand Farm Park
Every fall, as the leaves turn orange and the air becomes crisp, owners David and Patricia Hand open up a portion of their operating farm to the general public. Aptly named the Green Hand Farm Park, the agricultural attraction features an 8-acre corn maze that challenges families, students, and other groups to work together to find their way out. The labyrinth takes on a new theme each year and features facts and clues hidden throughout the maze. This year’s theme celebrates the 50th anniversary of the classic television special "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown." Guests can explore the maze, take a hayride out to the pumpkin patch, bounce around on the jumbo jumper, ride the "redneck roller coaster" cow train, at zombies with paintball guns, face off in archery tag, and more. At night, brave visitors can explore the maze and groups can cook hot dogs and s'mores over the campfire.
