Come to Marini Farm for a fun journey through our corn maze! 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.

A finished game sheet is a finished maze!
Pizza Picnics at Appleton Farms features pizza baked in our wood fire oven, made fresh by hand when you order!
