The Homestead Chicks Greet the Public and Pose for Photos

One of the most popular activities each maze season is the opportunity to meet many of the animals up close. The chicks are fun for people to hold and photograph. Small children espcially enjoy this interaction with these little critters.

Hayride. Here we go!

Another group takes off on a Homestead Animal Farm hayride. We have several vintage tractors, this one is a 1949 IH McCormick Farmall Model M, that are used to pull the hayride wagons. Mark Harmann drives this group through the "I Spy" trail. The ride lasts about 15 to 20 minutes and winds through the farm, fields, and woods. The "I Spy" hayride is one of the favorite activities during the fall public maze season. You can play the "I Spy" game, where you try to find a list of items placed along the trail, as you ride along.

The Homestead Maze Season is Well Underway

We are off and running with our public fall maze season once again this year. Despite the overcast skies we did a brisk business this last weekend continuing our big start to the annual multi-weekend event. If you haven't stopped by already there is still time to take in the maze, hayrides, pumpkins, Homestead hand-crafted cutting boards and butcher blocks, caramel apples, and visit with all the farm animals. There's no need for reservations during the weekend maze events. Here's the fall public maze info page. And below are some photos of this last weekend's action.
