Come to Marini Farm for a fun journey through our corn maze! The theme of 2019's maze is 'Exploring America'. 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".
You are invited to Appleton Farm's very own Pumpkin Trail! Enjoy this self-guided, non-scary event for children of all ages. Don your favorite costume and explore the farm by following over 100 lighted pumpkins. Once you're done, stop at the carriage barn for some smores with your favorite barnyard animals!
