Fall gives New Englanders the opportunity to look at things we often take for granted in a new light! Trees begin to stop us in our path with beautiful foliage and dairy farms turn into autumn wonderlands.
All year long we can thank dairy farms for helping to preserve the open spaces we
know and love in our region, but in the fall, these farms are especially stunning.
My favorite part about this time of year is how several New England dairy farms open their doors to the public for age-old traditions like pumpkin picking and successfully conquering a corn maze,
New England dairy farms make for a quintessential trip this time of year with fields filled with pumpkins, barns stocked with all things apple, and live animals onsite. No matter your age – heading to a corn maze is a yearly rite of passage for New Englanders. When I was growing up, visiting farms to tackle the corn maze with my family was always a fun adventure!
Corn Mazes Worth Visiting AT New England Dairy Farms
Hunt Farm | 207 Daniel Shays Hwy, Orange, MA
The Hunt Farm Corn Maze is the maze we decided to tackle this past weekend, as you can see from the images above and below! While visiting we couldn’t help but stop at their pumpkin farmhouse, across the way from their dairy farm, to stock up on pumpkins of all shapes and sizes. Not only does this corn maze have a pumpkin patch nearby but they also have a petting zoo, food stand, and cider donuts! So mark your calendars and head to Orange, MA to take on their “Mega Stega”
dinosaur maze now through November 3rd.
Fort Hill Farms Corn Maze Adventure | 260 Quaddick Rd, Thompson, CT
Through October 31st visitors can tour this seven-acre corn maze! Fort Hill Farms is great for kids and adults alike. The farm offers both an educational experience and mini-maze for children and adult-only flashlight nights for those who seek adventure under a starry sky. Visitors can also pick pumpkins at the patch!
Sweet Pea Farm and the House of Hayes Corn Maze | 151 East St, North Granby, CT
The House of Hayes Corn Maze is a riddle game that works your brain and body! Throughout the maze, participants must answer a riddle to figure out the right way to go. Answer it wrong and you might end up going in circles! Once you get through the corn maze, head to the onsite farmstand for fresh milk and cheese. The last day to visit this season is October 31st.
Percy Farm Corn Maze | 2919 Mountain Rd, Stowe, VT
Percy Farm is the perfect day trip for leaf-peeping because the farm is located in beautiful foliage-lined Stowe, Vermont. This farm has every New England family-fun activity – a corn maze, baby goats and calves to feed, and unique scarecrows. Visitors can purchase some sugar-shack-made Percy family maple syrup too!
Crescent Farm | 140 Willow Avenue, Bradford, MA
Cresent Farm is home to a 15 acre corn maze that takes teamwork and memory skills. While the maze is open for family-fun all week long, grab your friends Friday through Sunday evening for the Starlight Maze – just be sure to bring your own flashlight! The last day to visit this season is October 31st.
Escobar’s Highland Farm Corn Maze | 255 Middle Rd, Portsmouth, RI
Escobar’s Highland Farm corn maze covers 8 acres. Visitors can pick a fresh pumpkin from the patch to carve a spooky jack-o-lantern – dressing their doorstep with Halloween flair! Hayride tours of the dairy farm are available on weekends for just $4. Escobar’s Highland farm corn maze is cash only and runs through November 3rd.

We hope this post inspired you to call up your crew and pile into the car this weekend for a corn maze run. I promise it’s one of the most fun seasonal activities New England has to offer. Plus, the weather is too gorgeous this time of year to stay inside!
