Operated by the same family for more than 100 years, Mitcham Farm boasts autumn-centric activities such as a 7-acre corn maze, a tractor-led hayride, and a petting zoo. Lead a bold expedition through 2.5 miles of maze-like corn fields trimmed into zoo animals, including an elephant, a panda, and a cubist interpretation of a boa constrictor. Children can bond with gregarious goats, slide elbow-first down a mammoth mountain slide, or hone aiming skills with the corn cannon.
Tractor-pulled hayrides through the farm showcase fields of crops as well as the countryside’s indigenous bounce house. Click here for the farm’s hours of operation from Friday, September 16, 2011 to Sunday, November 6, 2011. Farm-goers younger than 3 need not pay for entrance. Pack a picnic to sate autumnal appetites, or explore the harvest-ready pumpkin patch, where fresh-baked pumpkin pies are rumored to sprout in the moonlight.
