The summer weather is still lingering, but the leaves are finally beginning to change! Cool breezes are coming, and we’re ready. It’s the time of year when we start pulling out our favorite family recipes and decorations. The apples and pumpkins are ripening, and local farm markets are bringing out their caramel apples and fresh pumpkin pie.

Here in Wisconsin, the corn is turning golden, and we’re getting excited for one of our favorite traditions: the corn maze. We’ve put together a list of our favorite corn mazes and farm markets around Madison, Wisconsin, so you and your family can join the fun!

 

1. Schuster’s Farm in Deerfield

Visit Schuster’s Farm for the corn maze, pumpkin patch, and barnyard fun!

Navigate the corn maze by day or by night! Grab some friends for Flashlight Nights—bring your own flashlight or pick up a glowstick at the ticket booth for $1.

Schuster’s Farm has a corn maze experience for all ages and skill levels. There are two mazes: the small maze and the large maze. The small maze is perfect for kids or those who want a more relaxing experience, and the large maze is perfect for anyone who wants a more difficult challenge.

Another great addition to your fall fun experience is the Schuster’s Farm hayride! You and your crew can take in the beauty of the fall colors and explore the farm in style.

Schuster’s Farm has more than 35 different varieties of pumpkins and gourds, so you’re sure to find the right one for your fall decorations! They also have pumpkin carving kits, and the staff will even help carry your treasures to your vehicle.

Want to try out some new fall activities? Schuster’s Farm has you covered. You can check out the Corn Pit, the Tire Maze, the Spider Web, the Haunted Forest, Noah’s Ark, Bunnytown, the Jumping Pillow, and more unique activities.

2. Eugster’s Farm Market in Stoughton

Hitch a wagon ride, explore a corn maze, and enjoy the apple orchard and the pumpkin patch! Eugster’s Farm Market has two corn mazes: the challenging 8-acre corn maze and the 2-acre maze for kids.

Hunt for the perfect pumpkin in the patch, and use the pumpkin washing station to make sure you’re only taking home the pumpkins, not the dirt!

Eugster’s Fall Festival is in full swing! First on their list of activities is the 15-acre petting farm. Kids can learn all about farm animals, bottle feed goats, feed the ducks and fish, and use the old-fashioned water pump!

Stop by the Milk House Bakery for their famous caramel apples, apple cider donuts, pies, coffee, and sandwiches.

The U-Pick Apple Orchard is open as long as yields last! Fill up a bag with as many apples as you can—all varieties are only $2 per pound.

Want a little spooky October family fun? Start your Halloween by stepping into the Screamy Scary Silo (a maze built into the silo with blacklights and spooky music) or the 3D Haunted House (which is perfectly family friendly).

Can’t make Fall Festival? Not to worry, Eugster’s Farm Market is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. six days a week.

3. Treinen Farm in Lodi

Treinen Farm has one of the most impressive corn maze designs we’ve ever seen—so impressive that USA Today named the Treinen Farm corn maze one of America’s top 10 corn mazes!

There are different challenges for you to choose from, including maps with missing pieces and secret locations to find within the maze. Check out their amazing past designs!

Fill up a wagon with selections from more than 25 pumpkin varieties. The pumpkin patches cover more than 18 acres, so you’re sure to find the perfect pick!

Treinen Farm has many other unique attractions like giant board games, barnyard animals, and more. The area is beautiful, so pack a picnic, grab friends and family, and walk through the scenic countryside.

4. Creek Bed Country Farmacy in Poynette

Creek Bed Country Farmacy is home to Wisconsin’s largest corn maze—this winding corn maze spans 18 acres! You can navigate over six miles of maze trails and play their trivia game too! Not quite up to the challenge? Don’t worry, there’s also a 2-acre maze.

Creek Bed Country Farmacy has lots of amusing games like Pumpkin Bowling, Human Hamster Wheels, the Cat and Mouse Game, and Giant Checkers. Other features on the farm are the 75-foot Gunny Sack Slide, the Culvert Swing, Steer Roping, and Wooden Play Structures.

After all those activities, you’ll be pretty hungry, so make sure to stop by the Eat Shack for hot, tasty barbecue, homemade mac and cheese, barbecue pulled pork fries, fresh buttermilk biscuits, caramel apples, and vanilla ice cream.

5. Country Bumpkin Farm Market in Wisconsin Dells

The Country Bumpkin Farm Market is the place to go for fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables. Their 2.5-acre corn maze involves educational trivia for kids to enjoy. The maze takes about 30 minutes to complete and is perfect for kids.

The County Bumpkin Farm Market works to farm sustainably and organically. Their goal is to make a fun space to create family memories, and the Lil’ Bumpkin Petting Farm and Play Village will have kids asking to visit again.

Lil’ Bumpkin Petting Farm and Play Village has a whole make-believe village, complete with a farmhouse, school, church, miner’s shack, and log cabin. You can feel like a kid again as you enter this unique farm.

Goats, donkeys, chickens, ducks, peacocks, and alpacas roam peacefully around the petting zoo, ready for attention and treats. Other activities include pedal kart races, the tractor slide, tug-of-war, a zip line, the wooden play train, the obstacle course, and lots more.

 

Fall fades as quickly as it arrives, so head out to a corn maze while they’re still here! Gather your friends and family to enjoy the fall fun and beautiful weather as long as it lasts. You will carry the memories of these golden autumn days for a long time.
