Fall is nearly here and with it comes memories of apples and pumpkins, trick-or-treating, hayrides and of course, Elwood Orchards’ famous corn maze! Sprawling across more than 8 acres of Londonderry farmland, this is surely a sight to be seen. Grab the kids and their favorite wagon to ride along in for this fun fall event.
During the month of June, the Elwood Orchards farmers prepared the annual corn maze by planting nearly 400,000 seeds. Since then, the crop has grown tremendously, with the cornstalks reaching up to fourteen feet tall! There’s only one way out of Elwood Orchards’ corn maze, with plenty of twists, turns and dead ends to keep you wondering.
Corn mazes are a fun way for people to enjoy the harvest season while supporting local farmers, who can use the money generated from the corn maze to reinvest in the following year’s crops. Tickets are only $7 per person, and children 5 and under get in free. Elwood Orchards is located at 54 Elwood Road in Londonderry and open seven days a week. Beginning in October, Elwood Orchards will open the corn maze on Friday and Saturday night for a spooky good time!
