The Farm at The Children’s Home is hosting a family fun festival called “The Home Maze and Pumpkin Patch” to be held every weekend from September 19 through November 1.

This inaugural event offers an entire day of fall activities, including a pumpkin patch, a cow train, a pumpkin chucker that launches pumpkins and apples at a speed of up to 90 miles an hour, food truck concessions, photo cutouts, a parent hangout, a toddler hay maze, and a sorghum maze that is cut in the shape of The Children’s Home logo.

“This unique maze that covers six and a half acres promises to challenge adventure seekers of all ages.  We have two trails, one longer and one short for our younger patrons,” said Shannon English, The Farm business director.

The sorghum used in the maze is free of genetically modified organisms and is a sustainable choice for The Farm, as it will be used to feed the cows throughout the winter.

The Home Maze and Pumpkin Patch will be held on Saturdays, 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. and Sundays, noon-6 p.m. Cost of admission is $10 for adults and kids 12 and older; $7 for seniors and kids ages 4-11, and free for kids 3 and under.

The Farm also offers group admission on weekdays by reservation only, Wednesday-Friday, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Group admission is $5 per person; or $8 per person with a small pumpkin included. For more information, The Farm website is
