Take a Moonlit Stroll Through NY’s Longest Running Corn Maze
Long Acre Farms is a 4th generation farm that planted its roots in Western New York in the 1920’s. Milking cows and raising crops was the way of life for the first two generations of the Lawrence family. 1983 was the year the business started to diversify by offering sweet corn for sale at a small road side table. Since then, they've grown massively by adding more locally grown produce in their farm market, offering tours for schools, gifts, ice cream, children's play areas, live music events, a wood fired pizza oven and more.
They opened their Amazing Maize maze back in 1998, which makes it the longest running corn maze in New York. This fall, you can experience the farm and the maze for yourself with their famous, specialty Moonlight Maze. It's a family-friendly experience that isn't scary. Just don't forget your flashlight.
Tickets are available for $15 per person ages 13+ Friday and Saturday evenings from 5 to 9 pm. Children 4 and under are free, ages 5 to 12 are $13. You can get tickets for September 25th, 26th, October 2nd, 3rd, 9th, 10th, 16th, 17th, 23rd, 24th, and 30th.
Participants must enter the maze by 9 pm, and they close it at 11. To limit guests standing in line, the farm is asking that you enter the maze during your timed ticket slot.
Get to Long Acres Farm early and grab a wood-fired pizza, dinner from the grill and a glass of wine before tackling the maze. You can celebrate your escape with an refreshing ice-cream treat.
