Keep in mind, many farms, pumpkin patches, corn mazes and Haunted Houses are trying to cope with rapidly changing state COVID requirements: ALWAYS see their own website, Facebook page or call them before you go.

NOTE: Many of the farms are dropping their websites and switching to Facebook pages - but they don't tell anyone, including search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo or us, or redirect their website,  thus breaking all links to them. If a link is broken please click the "click here to report a broken link or blank page" so we can find the replacement link! Thanks!
