Geisler Farms

Geisler Farms Corn Maze and logo

Spend a weekend enjoying Growing Family Fun at Geisler Farms through October 30! Navigate your way through the 10-acre corn maze. (That’s big enough to fit 7.5 football fields inside of it.) When finished, enjoy 15 other activities including the Big Slide, Jump Pad, rubber duck races, pedal karts, trikes for tykes, tractor tire swings, hamster rolls, and yard games! An ADA hayrack offers rides, weather permitting. Going with a group of 10 or more? Reserve one of three fire pits to roast s’mores. Check out the gift shop inside the Red Shed and pick from dozens of pumpkins at the pumpkin patch. Before you go, snap a picture next to the area’s biggest pumpkin. Standing eight feet tall, it’s hard to miss!
