Hudson Valley Corn Maze Craze Is Strong
If you like getting lost without a GPS, maybe you should spend some time in one of the intricate corn maze's the Hudson Valley has to offer.
Our region is home to lots of farming and that mean A LOT of cornfields. Some of the local orchards have gone all our to set up a corn maze that will have you screaming "Get me outta here!" Not because they are really scary, but after a while you just want to get back to the cider donut stand.
These are just of few of the best corn mazes in the area. Taylor and I went through the huge maze at Barton Orchards. Every year they outdo themselves with a new and exciting design. According to the Mommy Poppins website, the Barton maze has a special theme this year.
"Law Enforcement: 300 Years of the Duchess County Sheriff Department" theme is no different. In fact, the 2017 maze is even bigger this year. Families can work together to play games in the maze, answering questions and finding pictures to make your way out.
We were in there for what seemed like a long time, so here is the sped up version of our walk inside the Barton Orchard Corn Maze.
Some of the other places to get A-Mazed are: Kesicke Farm in Rhinebeck. I took my daughters there when they were younger and it's great for little kids. Lots of fun things to do and they have a petting zoo. Hurd's Family Farm in Modena is also excellent for younger children.
If you're looking for something a bit more frightening, try the Headless Horseman in Ulster Park. Their Dark Harvest Corn Maze is recommended for those age 13 and up. It's so scary that children under 8 are prohibited.
Those are just a few of the corn mazes in the Mid Hudson Valley. There are lots of great farms around here and you really can't go wrong by visiting any of them. What is your favorite? Who has the best Corn Maze in the area? Please leave your comments on our Facebook page.
