Speaking on Business: Farmstead Corn Maze and Pumpkin Festival
The Farmstead Corn Maze and Pumpkin Festival is one of the largest fall festivals in Idaho with thousands who attend every year.
This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
Jim Lowe grew up farming and ranching but didn’t have a family farm to return to. After getting his degree in Ag Business, he loved the idea of creating an agritourism operation. With his wife, Hillary, they opened Farmstead Corn Maze and Pumpkin Festival in Meridian in 1997 as Idaho’s first full corn maze, and today this fall festival is one of the largest in Idaho with thousands who attend every year and 200 seasonal workers helping put the event on.
The Farmstead Corn Maze and Pumpkin Festival offers something for everyone. From the traditional corn maze, themed “Famous Potatoes” this year, to a pumpkin patch, hayrides, pig races and pumpkin tetherball, this is a great way to celebrate fall, farm style. If you like to compete, there’s games like Corn Hole, Apple Blasters and Barnyard Ball. On Friday nights, they have fireworks and if you’re up for a scare, you won’t want to miss Field of Screams, the haunted corn maze. There’s also nightly marshmallow roasts around the fire pit.
The Farmstead Corn Maze and Pumpkin Festival supports education and offers field trips for school kids of all ages, programs for kids to earn free passes and school fundraiser nights. The festival is open Monday through Saturday through Nov. 3
