Howell Living History Farm’s Famous Corn Maze Reopens October 2
New Jersey’s longest-running corn maze re-opens in Hopewell Township on October 2. Advance tickets are strongly recommended by visiting https://www.howellfarm.org/corn-maze. The 250-year-old Howell Farm re-creates a 4-acre maze each year that is a thrill for local residents and visitors alike. Other fall festivities related to the maze are two miles of walking paths with a maze master tower, a history bridge, maze games, and more. Tickets are $10 for ages 10 and up and $8 for children ages 5-9.
The theme of the 2021 corn maze is “Creatures of the Vernal Pool,” a nod to local aquatic wildlife of the Delaware River. Visitors can also expect a courtyard with pumpkins, food tent, and hayrides, all of which are certain to get everyone into the Halloween spirit!
A facility of the Mercer County Park Commission, Howell brings the history of traditional farming practices into the present. Dedicated to preserving and educating the public about heritage farming techniques from the early 1900s, the facility is both a working farm and a source of fun and inspiration. Seasonal public events include ice harvesting, maple sugaring, sheep shearing, threshing, hayrides, the corn maze, music, dancing, and homemade ice cream.
While the farm is technically located in Lambertville, the GPS address is 17 Valley Road in Hopewell Township. For questions, call (609) 737-3299 or visit www.howellfarm.org.
