At Maan Farms, families grab a bale on hayrides; visit goats, rabbits, and other resident livestock; and cavort their way through other autumn sights such as the corn maze and pumpkin patch. The hayride departs at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., and 5 p.m. to take up to four riders on a leisurely tour of the farm; the Critter Corral petting zoo brings farm animals and humans together to snack on sunflower seeds and gossip about reptiles. Youngsters can take their imaginations for a spin at the Kidz Corral’s sandbox and farm-themed playground. Papa Jo’s A-maze-ing Mazes give families a chance to frolic through a corn maze, sunflower labyrinth, or tangled rope maze, and offer nocturnal merriment with bring-your-own-flashlight nights on October 20–22 and 24–29 until 9 p.m. After a stop at the grounds’ bird sanctuary, visitors can saunter up to Maan’s lookout spot to behold a majestic 360-degree view of the valley below.
Perambulating parties can stave off autumnal shivers with balmy cups of hot chocolate. To cap things off, visitors can test-drive the Cinderella-model carriages at the pumpkin patch before scooping up their own 10-pound mock basketball to take home and employ in backyard Headless Horseman installations.
Maan Farms Country Experience & Estate Winery
Though it started as a small berry stand in 1977, Maan Farms Country Experience & Estate Winery has spent the last three decades expanding, accommodating, and providing its community with a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of urban living. One constant during that time, however, has been the family's dedication to producing fresh edibles, from juicy berries picked during the summer, to the crisp vegetables and sweet corn that spread across tables in the fall. Today, those are also supplemented by fermented produce: wines, made from the farm's own berries and sold by experts who always have a pairing suggestion on hand.
While visiting the farm, guests can utilize those wholesome treats as fuel to explore the property's collection of activities, including the Critter Corral, where pigs, bunnies, and ducks elicit wonder by munching scoops of food. A bird sanctuary, a patch of pumpkins ranging from 10 to 100 pounds, a country kitchen baking homemade pies and meals, a panoramic view of the valley, and a trio of mazes—including Papa Joe's corn maze—round out the lineup of agricultural attractions, which group tours, birthday parties, and campers can take advantage of at various times throughout the year.
