Farmer Jim’s Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze is an educational agritoursim venture that showcases a working farm. Owned and operated by Jim and Lynn Newman, a visit to Farmer Jim’s is fun for not only families but for school and church groups as well.
The 2015 corn maze at Farmer Jim’s pays homage to Mont Helena, the 1896 home located on Old Highway 61 between Rolling Fork and Anguilla. Visitors to Farmer Jim’s can navigate the corn maze, pick their own pumpkin, and find lots of family friendly fun. In addition to the large maze there is a smaller kiddie maze, and corn filled pools for the little ones.
Not only do they grow the traditional orange pumpkins, but also a large variety of gourds and heirloom pumpkins.
The Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze is open October 1-October 31. On the weekends it is open to the public (Saturdays 9 -6; Sundays 2-6). Weekdays are reserved for groups and reservations are required.
On the evening of October 24 (after the Bear Affair), brave adventurers may want to experience the Haunted Corn Maze. This will take place from 9 p.m. until midnight and requires advance reservations.
