maze, spook house, or hayride. There is usually a small fee for the mazes (of

A visitor writes on October 03, 2013: "My
husband and I visited Yesterland Farm in Canton, TX for the first
time last year with our 3 year old daughter. We loved the experience
and our daughter still talks about her visit to the 'pumpkin patch'.
The corn maze was so much fun and we had a blast picking out our
pumpkins for the season. I would totally recommend this farm as a
fun outing for families. We are definitely planning to visit
Yesterland Farm again this year. We may have to visit during
Christmas time too. I saw that they have special events planned for
that time of year as well. We found out about Yesterland Farm on
your website last year and really appreciate the information. Thank
