March Farm Corn Maze
There was a time in Connecticut when a farm was just that—a farm. Fields were tilled, planted and harvested, cows were milked and eggs were gathered. Today, farmers still engage in all the hard work of raising crops but the marketing of those crops has turned agriculture into entertainment for customers.
It is fall now, the season of bounty, and visitors to the March Farm in Bethlehem can plan a full day of fun while purchasing or picking fresh fruit and vegetables. At the same time, they can enjoy features such as the Corn Maze—crafted on a Wizard of Oz theme this year—the Ben March Memorial Celebration on October 18th with its Corn Hole Tournament, fall activities, live music, refreshments by The Mobile Pub and food from the Hilltop Snack Shack and Frankies.
Children can visit the 30,000-square-foot play yard with its tricycle track, farm-themed playhouses, hay bale hills, climbing walls and the like while at the Pondside Animal Yard they can learn about the animals. Pony Rides are available adjacent to the Farm Play Area Saturday and Sunday’s from 11-5PM.
To guarantee a time slot for the Corn Maze, patrons can pre-register online and pay $6 in advance (be sure to bring your receipt). Tickets purchased on site are $7. Corn Maze tickets for the weekend go on sale Monday. The Corn Maze is open on Saturdays and Sundays.
Because of COVID-19, the farm is not busing people from the lower lot to the hilltop. Those not feeling well should stay home. Face masks are required, even in the field, and social distancing will be maintained. No pets permitted other than service dogs.
