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 Howell Farm Corn Maze in Lambertville. The maze runs until October 31 and is open on Saturday from noon to 8 p.m., Sunday from noon to 4 p.m., and Friday, October 21, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. All guests must exit within one hour after closing. Choose between the following options:
- For $8, you get two corn-maze admissions (up to a $16 value).
- For $15, you get four corn-maze admissions (up to a $32 value).
Howell Farm Corn Maze welcomes wayfarers with 2 miles of twists, turns, and heart-wrenching dead-ends in a corn maze that blends theater, games, and a thrilling labyrinth. Dynamic duos and fearless foursomes enter the pig-themed attraction and attempt to stave off disorientation during a trip through the stalk-lined corridors. Four acres of fields await corn cartographers as music plays and groups race over a bridge, under a tower, and desperately search for trails of breadcrumbs. Augment navigational adventures with the maze’s built-in games, interacting in a life-size board complete with hidden clues, a Maze Master, and audience participation during theatrical interludes.
Though not included in today’s Groupon, autumnal activities welcome guests who have escaped from the farm's corn clutches. Traverse a courtyard filled with hayrides, a pumpkin patch, and a smaller hay-bale maze calibrated for kiddie explorers and people who like to traverse mazes on their bellies.
Howell Living History Farm is a Facility of the Mercer County Park Commission.

Howell Farm Corn Maze
Howell Farm spins an agricultural story stretching back more than 250 years to the site's initial settlement in the 1730s. Within that time, the land has changed hands from many different families; the years have found it transformed from a grain farm to a dairy farm, with various incarnations in between. Today, it enjoys a spot on the National Register of Historic Places, and it invites visitors to travel back in time to experience a taste of what farm life was like in the years between 1890 and 1910.
Depending on the time of year, guests may get to help plant or harvest crops, or shell and grind corn inside the 1800s barn before baking it into cornbread. Visitors often get to help care for the animals, learn to make soap, or churn fresh butter and ice cream––all using authentic, turn-of-the-century methods. Admission is free, but during autumn the farm raises funds by charging admission to a miles-long corn maze that challenges families and friends to navigate winding paths and resist the urge to butter and season their surroundings.
