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 corn fields. Leave the indoors with today's Groupon: for $8, you get two corn maze and hayride combo passes at Ramsey’s Farm, located in Wilmington (a $16 value). Weather permitting, Ramsey’s Farm is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through October 31, when it closes at 3 p.m.
Ramsey’s Farm is Delaware’s most aesthetically ascendant pumpkin-dotted prairie, welcoming seasonal family outings and Halloween spirit-summoning sessions. Your Groupon is good for admission for two to the autumnal expanse. Once inside, browse the more-than-10-acre pumpkin patch for a perfectly ovoid jack-o’-lantern canvas, or try to collect all eight different varieties of pumpkin that the farm offers, which, once arranged in a perfect half-circle, reveal the answers to the following evening’s Jeopardy episode. After you’ve found the perfect combination of holiday gourds, hop onto a human-moving tractor for a halcyon hayride through the scenic Brandywine River Valley. Next, test your spatial senses and biological compass with a trip through an eight-acre corn maze, replete with in-maze educational opportunities that cover modern farming, local agriculture, and the hibernation schedules of the area's anthropomorphic mole population. Tykes looking to conquer something other than confusingly arranged cornstalks can explore a bale maze for hay-strewn, investigative excitement.
Ramsey’s Farm is maintained by a close coterie of family members and friends, so it’s great for fall family outings, first dates with a naturally burnt-sienna backdrop, and pumpkin-enhanced friendship-strengthening sessions.
