We are making changes due to COVID-19 to provide a safe location to have fun on the farm this fall.  Our new guidelines include:

     • Face masks are required by state mandate for these activities - Hayride, Field of Fright, Kids' Fun Barn, Paintball, the Exit Store & at all outdoor areas if you are not socially distanced from others.

     • Purchase tickets online to save $$ & make your visit at admissions quicker!  Admission tickets purchased at the farm will be $2 more per ticket than those purchased online.

     • The paths in the corn maze and Field of Fright are wider this year to help with social distancing.

     • There will be additional hand washing units & many hand sanitizer stations at activities.

     • Frequent cleaning of activities & the facilities will take place.

     • Hayrides to the u-pick pumpkin patch will have limited, social distanced seating and will run on a schedule.  Reserved, timed tickets for this will be sold at admissions on the farm. The hayride will not be included in the Combo admission this year.  Face masks required.

     • A virtual line app will be used at the Field of Fright.  Tickets to the Field of Fright must be purchased online.

     • Employee health screenings & temp checks will be in place.

We are depending on you to do your part too!

     • We are requesting that guests only visit when healthy.

     • Please wear face masks per our guidelines.

     • We are requesting that guests keep 6ft between their group and others.

Let's work together to PLAY SAFE!

Hope to see you at The MAiZE this fall!
