Pick Your Own

We’ve been commercially growing fruit on the same land overlooking the Connecticut River for more than a century.

  • Apples (through late Oct)
  • Peaches/Nectarines (through late Sept)
  • Pears (through late Sept)

Corn Maze

Take a stroll through our 2021 Corn Maze—while you’re also strolling down memory lane! This year, the theme is 1970s rock ‘n roll. (You heard right!) It was the decade of big-hair bands and heavy metal (plus lots and lots of air guitar!). The Maze will be a “blast from the past” to a highly influential period if you lived through it—and just tons of fun for everyone else.

During your visit, you’ll experience several musical genres reflective of the decade and learn trivia about them all. As you and your family navigate one mile of paths across four acres and hundreds of decision points, you’ll come
upon ten posts that coincide with ten multiple-choice questions on a visitor’s “passport”—as well as unveil the top song from each year. If you provide the correct answers, you’ll be directed to continue on the right path; otherwise, you’ll get lost (which can be even more fun!). The passports have multiple themes, so you can choose the one that most interests you.

The average time to navigate the entire Maze is 30 to 40 minutes. (Don’t worry: There will be Maze Monitors stationed throughout the Maze, just in case you need assistance.)
