Get Lost This Fall at the Garner Farms Corn Maze


Can you believe how quickly the time flies? It seemed like only yesterday we were getting hyped up for summer and now we are suddenly finding ourselves winding down on the season of flip-flop days and 100 degree weather. But there's no reason to be sad! The autumn season brings just as many wonderful things along with it, especially on the coast. We start seeing the leaves turn orange, red, and yellow, the air gets a little crisper, and the sky gets this beautiful gold tinge around sunset.

Something else that always comes to mind when thinking about the fall weather, is something a little more fun: pumpkin patches and corn mazes! When the corn is in season, and the stalks are taller than you are, it’s time to start looking for a place that puts on a corn maze. Likewise, during this season when it’s "pumpkin everything” from coffee flavors to pie, picking pumpkins is an activity that everyone wants in on.

Luckily, Garner Farms in Newport is a great place where you can experience both!

The Corn Maze

Through the rest of this autumn season, Garner Farms invites families and groups of all ages to have fun finding their way through their 5 acre corn field maze. Hours of operation vary, but the maze is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays until dark with the entrance closing an hour prior to nightfall so that people have plenty of time to find their way through. The admission fee is minimal for all the fun that you are sure to have and it includes admittance to the Family Fun Center as well.

The Family Fun Center includes a mini maze for the little ones out of hay bales, a corn kernel pit, a fossil pit, a tire mountain, pumpkin chucker, games, and more! It’s seriously just a really fun time for people of all ages to enjoy.

Bonus: If you want to get a head start on what the maze is like, then you can check out this video that highlights the whole maze!

The Pumpkin Patch

Who doesn’t love the thrill of the search when it comes to finding the perfect pumpkin? Every year, I revert to my childhood once again as I find the pumpkin that will be the brilliant orange canvas for that year’s jack-o-lantern masterpiece.

Garner Farms will be opening their U-Pick Pumpkin Patch until the end of September, but that will give you just enough time to plan what sort of ghoulish grin you will be putting on your pumpkin so that you can find just the right one. Or, if you’re looking for something a little craftier, you can check out our Pinterest page for some fun décor ideas so that you can take a little bit of the beach back home with you to commemorate your coastal vacation.

Garner Farms is a great, family-oriented place that offers amazingly fresh seasonal produce (produce that can be used in your favorite fall recipes!), beautiful flowers and plants, and more! Get lost (haha, see what I did there?) in all the fun this fall with the corn maze, U-Pick pumpkin patch, hayrides, and the Family Fun Center. You don’t want to miss out on this!
