Corn Mazes and Pumpkin Patches

Kohls Stony Hill Tree Farm Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch
3319 Mexico Rd, Milton PA

Kohls Stony Hill Tree Farm has all the iconic fall fun you either experienced as a kid or wished you had! Hayrides are starting September 14 and continuing through November 4. The star of the show is the corn maze, which covers a 7-acre lot with over 3 miles of trails. Try the shorter one if you aren’t excited about exploring the long course. Two things to remember: first, purchase a pass in advance, and second, bring a flashlight if you are coming after dark. Challenge your friends and family! Your pass to the corn maze also gives you access to the Giant Lawn Games set up right next to the maze.

Along with the hayrides and the maze, you can buy tickets to test your skill with the Corn Cannon and the Pumpkin Chunkin. With the Corn Cannon, you shoot half ears of corn at targets, while the Pumpkin Chunkin is a giant slingshot for hurling pumpkins. You can buy single or multiple shots at either. Finally, stroll through the patch, and pick pumpkins for carving or decoration to bring home.

And, since Kohls IS a Christmas Tree Farm, stop in the Christmas store, and get an early start on your holiday shopping.
