A 5-acre corn maze entangles guests of Schwallier’s Country Basket in a pirate-themed exploration. For about 45 minutes, intrepid adventurers journey amid skyscraping corn towers, solving riddles with clues tucked into the corn. After unearthing every twist, turn, and secret dimension of the maze, emboldened travellers hop aboard the tractor-pulled cow train, a small wagon that traverses the length of Schwallier’s orchard, following the scent of the apple-blossom air just like a real cow through the expanse’s 15 varieties of apple trees. To satisfy pomaceous cravings, guests can munch on a quarter of a peck of apples each, sinking teeth into golden-pink honeycrisps before a salty bag of popcorn satisfies any lingering corn curiosities.

Schwallier’s Country Basket

Founded in 1989 as a roadside produce stand, the family-owned Schwallier’s Country Basket has since expanded into a full-grown farm market filled with autumnal attractions. Clues based around an annual theme are hidden within the corn maze, which guests of all ages navigate under the watchful eye of safety enforcers. Upon emerging from the labyrinth, visitors can pedal down the tricycle path, tour the grounds on a guided wagon ride, or greet a baby goat at the animal barn. A gated kids area also entices youngsters with attractions such as duck races and a straw mountain swarmed with prospectors trying to spin it into gold.

Elsewhere, raspberries, pumpkins, and more than 15 varieties of apples await picking in the farm's fields and patches. An onsite store also stocks various fall goodies, such as apple cider, indian corn, and homemade pies alongside crafts, toys, and fall-themed decorations.
