Corn Maze Information

Gather your flock and hatch your plan of escape to find your way out of New Jersey’s longest running corn maze.  Hidden in the 4 acres of our 2015 “Don’t be Chicken” maze are clues to help you complete your gameboard.   Ten of these clues are puzzle pieces that form a map of the maze and will help you find your way to Victory Bridge.  Collect these puzzle pieces and complete the trivia challenges on your gameboard.   If you’re not an expert on chicken trivia, you can find the answers to these challenges hidden in the maze as well.  Once your team crosses Victory Bridge, compare your time to those on our scoreboard to see where you fall in the pecking order.

If you’re the competitive type, bring your friends or neighbors for some friendly competition.   Whoever makes it out first can relax, listen to the music, pick out a pumpkin, take a hayride, have something to eat, and enjoy the activities in the courtyard (including several new additions for 2015).

This year, we're teaming up with the Hopewell Valley Arts Council and our sponsors to bring you the first annual aMAZing Pumpkin Carve.  See 50 pumpkins carved by local artists on display at the maze October 9th - 11th.

Due to inclement weather and field conditions the Howell Farm Corn Maze and aMAZing Pumpkin Carve will not be opening on Friday, October 9.
