It is October which means it is time for our annual trip to the pumpkin patch to enjoy the corn maze and pick the best pumpkins we can find. This year we had an absolutely gorgeous day to enjoy the Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch at Oakes Farm in Corryton, TN. This is our favorite pumpkin patch to visit because it never disappoints and there are a lot of activities to enjoy.
Our first stop was the corn maze which has the theme of “It’s Football time in Tennessee!” I think this is my favorite design yet. While the corn wasn’t as high this year (thanks to mother nature), it was still high enough to give us over an hour of fun exploring.
The Farm Scene Investigation (FSI) is a hit with my kids. You must traverse the corn maze to find 7 clues to lead you to find out who took the farmer. While you have a map, none of the clue locations are listed which makes it a little more difficult, but a whole lot of fun.
This year we stopped and enjoyed a fun game of corn hole after our adventure in the corn maze. (I’m not exactly sure who won!)
The rat racers are a must stop. My kids keep getting taller, but they still love to race in the tubes!
After enjoying some of the other 25 activities at the farm, we rounded out our day with a hayride to the pumpkin patch. My kids always race around to find the biggest and the best pumpkin in their eyes. They rode back in the wagon with smiles on there faces holding their treasures.
If you are looking for a Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch to visit in East Tennessee, I highly recommend Oakes Farm. Admission is $10.95 11 & Up $8.95 3-10 2 & under are free. This admission includes the corn maze and 25 activities on the “back 40″ plus hayride & flashlight maze. Add a pumpkin for $5.
