According to local legend, each night a ghost walks the railroad tracks from Washington Township to Mount Olive. Light in hand, the specter—known as the Hookerman of Long Valley—searches tirelessly for a limb he lost while working the railroad. This spooky legend takes center stage at Ort Farms' 2012 corn maze, in which visitors wind through 8 acres of twists and turns. After emerging from the labyrinth, guests can board a hayride and tour the farm grounds. See Fall Festival hours here. Entrance to the festival is free, and on weekends, visitors can also ride ponies, trains, and monster trucks for an additional fee.
The Fine Print
About Ort Farms
Each Fall, as the leaves begin to change in scenic Long Valley, big green John Deere tractors can be seen pulling hayrides of families out to their pumpkin patch to pick pumpkins off the vine. Giggles and laughs can be heard of visitors who find their way through the twists and turns of the 8 acre corn maze. The fall festival also offers farm animals to pet and feed, a tractor playset and hay pyramid for visitors. Their farm stand is open daily and has a wide selection of fresh produce, local apples, apple cider, decorations and delicious home baked pies and apple cider donuts. On the weekends in October, visitors can also enjoy pony rides, train rides and monster truck rides. The 2018 Corn Maze is a "Salute" to Active and Veteran Military personnel. Ort Farms is proud to be working with two special veterans resources, including Operation Chillout and The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society.
