Throughout late September and October, visitors navigate miles of winding vegetation in Howell Farm's wildlife-themed corn maze. The maze takes the shape of an owl. Labyrinthine cornstalks hide games and theatrical performances throughout, mixing music and visitor-participation activities into the trek. After finding a way out of the maze, guests are welcome to get lost at Howell Farm, which offers free admission. See the corn maze's available dates and hours.

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.
