Fall Maze and More
The happy fall-fun-family part of Ken’s Produce and Garden Center is Ken’s Korny Corn Maze. The state’s “First and Longest Running Corn Maze” covers six acres and provides visitors with a walking path of 2-1/2 miles… assuming you don’t get lost a bit and walk further.
The corn maze is flanked by pumpkins, a corn tunnel, farm animals, and other activities for children. Enjoy a day out on the farm, walk the corn maze, and let the kids jump in the hay a bit.
Ken’s Korny Corn Maze and courtyard activities — all 10 acres of them — are opening Saturday, September 21, 2019 and will remain open through October and part of November. Be sure to check the days and hours the farm is open. Corn maze information is available at www.kenskornycornmaze.com.
Special event days in 2019 include the Hero Weekend recognizing fire, EMS, military, and veterans (September 27-29, 2019); Scout Day (October 12, 2019), and Pet Weekend (November 8-9, 2019).
Food is available for purchase at the farm, and picnic tables are available.

The farm will close for the season at the end of Pet Weekend, November 9, 2019.
