BUZZZZZZZ….BUZZZZZZZ….BUZZZZZZZZ!!!!!!! Who are the most important bugs in the world?? Pollinators!! Without them we’d surely starve!! Come to the Clark Farms Pollinator maze and learn all about them and what you can do to help them. We’ve got over two miles of trails in our family-friendly, interactive corn maze. And, in case you really get lost (or just need a little help!), we have a smartphone app which will guide you out of the maze too.
In addition to our corn maze, we can’t forget to mention our awesome hayride as well. But there is still more… from corn cannons to our petting zoo, make sure to get Clark Farms on your calendar this fall. It’s a great place for kids to get lost playing while the adults take a break from all of the excitement.
So come to South County and spend a day in the country creating memories with your family at the Corn Maze Yankee Magazine named “Best in New England.”
Come Get Lost
Clark Farms Matunuck has tons of fun activities for kids and parents alike. It’s fall so that means our fall festival is in full swing, there’s lots of extra stuff to do besides our normal summer and spring offerings. Admission is $12.50 per person for everything but mining bags and animal food. This year we have even more attractions than ever, including a new children’s zipline, brand new corn cannons, strategy mazes, and more! Come on by, grab a treat at Clark’s Canteen and check out some of these great activities:
Our giant Corn Maze is a family favorite! This year our theme is The Pollinators! Our maze is fun for all ages. It includes an educational scavenger hunt that is best suited for children from 3-15 years old. We had thousands of people find their way through last year; and the reviews were incredible. You’ve got to try it yourself!
All day Saturday and Sunday we have hay rides leaving regularly to take tours through the woods to see our interpretation of pollinators real and imagined. No New England autumn is complete without a hay ride, so after you’ve found your way out of the maze, hop on board our wagon and get ready for some more fun.
That’s right, corn cannons. Test your shootin’ ability by firing real ears of corn across the farm. This year you have to PROTECT THE POLLINATORS! You have got to try this. Kids and adults of all ages love it!
Down at the farm there are some folks who’d like to meet you, from Tito and Seed (the donkeys), to Buttercup, and Begonia (the goats). The petting zoo is an instant hit with the kids.
Clark Farms Matunuck has hit the mother lode! Who will be next to strike it rich? The mine at Maze Mountain is an instant hit with the kids. Grab a bag of mining rough, priced from $5 for a small gemstone bag to $10 for the large fossil bag and experience the excitement of panning for your very own treasure!
Running straight through the heart of our mining mountain, this 30 foot slide is fun for everyone, don’t be surprised if you find yourself taking turn after turn.
Pedal Powered Go-Karts
Race around our professionally designed track in our pedal powered go-karts. We have large and small sizes so adults and kids can get in on the action.
Take a minute to cool off and a learn about our local environment in the Ecology House. There are educational displays, a fish pond, and who knows, maybe you’ll see one of our frogs relaxing on a lily pad.
Corn Pit, Hop Dots, Straw Maze, and Sandbox
The young ones always have a blast with this. The corn pit is just like a sandbox but filled entirely with corn kernels. Jump on in and build corn castles or corn angels. Our hop dots game is a great diversion, jump from stone to stone and try to find a safe path across. We also have a standard sand box complete with toys for our really young guests and those who didn’t get to spend enough time at the beach this past summer.
Think our maze is fun during the day? Try it at night! Under the huge autumn moon, with just your flashlight for illumination, you’re guaranteed to have a blast. Oh, and the kids will love it too!
Every Saturday night from October 6th through October 27th, we have campfires with s’mores, hot cider, and hot chocolate til 9PM (weather permitting).
We’re also a great location for educational school field trips, picnics, and other group outings. Bring the kids down to check it out!
