During its annual fall festival, the scarecrow huggers at Grim's Greenhouse & Farm Market treat visitors to an all-out fall sprawl with a 6-acre irrigated corn maze and a bevy of other autumn attractions. Gleeful families and dogged crop-circle investigators can rifle through Grim's corn maze, where the twisting and turning stalks reach eight feet in height and hints for navigation can be had by correctly answering trivia questions along the way. Fresh edibles such as jellies, preserves, and sweet corn beckon hungry visitors from the farm stand, and thousands of pumpkins, all grown on a bed of straw, sweetly beg passersby to give them a face. A quintet of mini pumpkins or gourds can be toted home for use as seasonal paperweights or custom Barbie helmets.
After soaking up the latest gourd gossip, festival attendees can be whisked away by other outdoor merriments, including a nighttime flashlight maze, adorable barnyard animals, and a water-balloon slingshot operated by adorable barnyard animals. Night invites maze masters to navigate the corn confusion on Friday and Saturday evenings using nothing but flashlights, and a $100 prize goes to the guest who can correctly guess the number of seeds inside the farm stand's giant pumpkin (counting occurs on October 30). Check out the calendar for specific festival hours on each day in October.
Grim’s Greenhouse & Farm Market
Since 1939, three generations of the Grim family have nurtured stalks of wheat, corn, and oats, and raised more than 3,000 chickens, on their picturesque farm. Now operating 10 greenhouses, each fall, they open up the premises to the public for activities including hayrides and a pick-your-own apple orchard, where guests can choose from varieties ranging from honey crisp to autumn galas.
During the farm’s Fall Festival, which runs from September 8th to November 4th, the grounds buzz with additional delights. Visitors can wend their way through a 6-acre corn maze during the daylight hours, or bring flashlights at night for an authentic taste of farming before the sun was invented. Alternatively, they can select their favorite gourd from the thousands that populate the pumpkin patch, or sample homemade apple cider donuts, apple cider slushies, or pumpkin ice cream.
