Farmland Adventures is OPEN with a new corn maze design + loads of fun for the kids

Farmland Adventures, our favorite pumpkin patch in Northwest Arkansas, is officially OPEN on Fridays and Saturdays (and Thursdays in October).

They open on Fridays at 1 p.m. and Saturday mornings at 9 a.m.

Farmland — who sponsors our Fall Family Fun Guide — is so much more than just a pumpkin patch, though. There’s the Giant Corn Maze, pony rides, private campfires for groups, a kids’ play area, pig races, a petting farm, fields with wildflowers and a cotton patch, a big rope spider web, a tire play area, human foosball, pony rides, pedal karts, wagon rides and more!

They also have birthday party options!

Heads-up, mamas: This year they have 3 “Mother’s Day Out” events on September 20th, September 26th, and October 2nd. They’ll be open from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on those dates with all the regular attractions available, except pig races. {There also won’t be a concession stand, so you might want to bring lunch or a snack.} Cost is $6 per person for anyone 3 and over.

And before we forget, here’s a coupon to use for SEPTEMBER to save $2 off regular admission (you can print it out or show it on your phone):

Of course, one of the biggest attractions at Farmland Adventures is the big corn maze. In the 9-acre maze you’ll find twisting pathways, questions and answers, and picture rubbings. The maze is great for family bonding and team building because you’re lost and must work through the challenge together. And then you get to share the victory together.

The 2018 Corn Maze theme is “Island Adventure”. Explore the exotic islands of Polynesia. Hawaii, New Zealand, and Easter Island, which form the corners of a triangle encompassing 1,000 unique and beautiful Pacific gems. This year’s maze design includes a volcano, natives, flowers, straw hut, palm trees, and sun.

There’s also a smaller Mini Maze, hidden within the Giant Corn Maze. At approximately 1 acre, this maze is great for younger explorers not quite ready for the Giant Corn Maze. Older participants can experience both mazes. Also, be sure to click here to read about Flashlight Nights, a totally unique experience in the maze.

Here are the top things you need to know before you go:

  • The wagon ride closes at dark
  • The large corn maze entrance closes one hour before farm closing
  • Pumpkins are an additional charge and can be purchased at the red building before you leave
  • Campfires are for groups and must be reserved in advance (Fees apply)
  • Please leave your pet at home (Only A.D.A. registered service dogs are allowed)
  • No tobacco, e-cigarettes, or alcohol are allowed at the farm
  • You’re going to have FUN!

Farmland Adventures is also a great place for fall farm photos. You can bring your own camera and snap all the pictures you want — or you can bring a professional photographer with you. {If you call ahead, they might already have one scheduled.} The photo opportunities are all around you, from beautiful scenery to peeking out from the fun wooden photo boards like these:
