Good Old Fashioned Down on the Farm Fall Fun

pumpkin patch

Make memories and find good clean country fun down on the farm!

Find special activities such as losing yourself in a corn maze, picking out your favorite pumpkin in the pumpkin patch or going on a hayride. Help with the farm chores, visit the animals or fill your weekend with a farm stay mini vacation.
Shop for Fall items like mums, fresh apples and cider, gourds and Indian corn. Don't forget the miniature pumpkins — an all-time kid favorite.

Navigate the corn mazes as Ards Farm and Kohl’s Stony Hill Tree Farm

  • Ards Farm has been a family-owned and -operated business for over 25 years. They began as a Farm Market. Since then, it has evolved, with the help of the next generation Ard's family, to include full-service catering, a farm-to-table restaurant and a Fall season destination with a newly designed corn maze, hayrides and pumpkin patch.
  • In the fall Kohl’s Stony Hill Tree Farm offers a Corn Maze with 4 miles of trails and several games to do inside the maze. Outside of the maze find over twenty cool and challenging life-sized family lawn games.  Head to the Pumpkin Patch to pick your own pumpkin for Jack ‘o lantern carving and fall decorating. Then shoot half ears of corn at talking targets with the Corn Cannon. See how good your aim is or you can challenge your friends for a little competition. Then try pumpkin chunking.  Our Pumpkin Chunking slingshot can hurl pumpkins amazing distances while you try to hit targets in the field. Finish an afternoon of fun with a leisurely hayride on back country roads and through a historic covered bridge.
