The two-acre corn maze at Edge of Town Farm Market made its debut in 2021 and was a smash hit. The maze – accessible via hayride wagons from the market – opens for this year’s season Saturday, Sept. 17.
“This is our second year and we’ve built the maze a little bit bigger – and a little bit harder,” said Edge of Town Farm Market owner Jason Poth.
The maze will be open to the public Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through October. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and Sunday, Sept. 18 Thereafter, it will be open 12-6 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Starting Oct. 9 – when the full moon reaches its peak – the maze will be open through midnight Fridays and Saturdays, with an added attraction on Saturday nights.
“We’ll have actors, dressed up and hiding throughout the maze, jumping out and scaring people,” Poth said.
After visiting the maze – which has built-in emergency exits, just in case – visitors will be treated to a stop at the pumpkin patch where they can pick their own pumpkins. The standard orange pumpkin is available, as are the miniature white “baby boo,” the tiny “jack be little,” and the striped “spark” pumpkins, among others.
The hayride and corn maze experience cost $10 per person. Once back at Edge of Town Farm Market, visitors can shop for haybales, cornstalks, mums, apples, peppers tomatoes and seasonal baked goods, among other items. As always, the market sells grass-fed beef and bison and other year-round specialties.
The corn maze is also available for private bookings of school classrooms and clubs. As the season progresses, Poth will incorporate some seasonal trivia to help guide the group’s way through the maze.
The Edge of Town Farm Market is located at 1165 Anmoore Road next to U Haul.
