The 2017 Marini Farm Corn Maze is yeti themed this year! This is not your typical corn maze; it is both educational and interactive. There are over 18 stations strategically placed throughout the maze with answers to a game sheet that you will be given before entering.We don't give you clues...you need to find your way out on your own! You will be able to track your progress through the maze by the amount of answers you find on your game sheet. A finished game sheet is a finished maze! Average time to complete the corn maze is 1.5 hours — so put on your sturdy shoes or sneakers and come enjoy the experience! For our youngest adventurers, we also have a 1 acre/20 minute "mini maze".
Explore an amazing island home to deer, foxes, osprey, and other magnificent creatures. Once home to generations of the Choate family and later a retreat for Cornelius and Mine Crane Choate Island, Choate Island remains a magical place boasting miles of walking trails, historic buildings, and breathtaking views of Essex Bay. The day's festivities include optional walks, talks, a children's treasure hunt, and refreshments. Park at Crane Beach, catch the shuttle at the boat dock, and your adventure begins.
Witness the rhythms and relics of New England's oldest working farm. Walk along bucolic meadows, planted fields, and see our grazing cattle before visiting the historic buildings.
