Interested in enjoying some family fun this October and November? Head over to Hammack Farms in Bonifay for an afternoon or evening of corn maze fun and fall treats.
Hammack Farms is owned and operated by Ryan and Aimee Hammack, who recently took over the 52 acre planted pine forest and converted the land. Ryan, a third generation farmer also farms 400 acres of row crops and cattle.
5.3 acres is now a corn maze for everyone to enjoy. The corn will eventually feed the cattle on the farm, and additional crops of cotton, peanuts, and soybeans will be planted for education.
“We want to educate children on where our food comes from,” said Ryan.
The corn maze isn’t the only fun at Hammack Farms. There is a pumpkin patch with a variety of assorted sizes and colors the children can purchase and decorate, a mini hay bale maze, corn box for kids 7 and under, a tractor train for smaller children, hay ride, farm animal zoo, and a playground.
Other items available are novelty pumpkins, gourds, dried cornstalks, and mum plants. A concession will be open with hot dogs, boiled peanuts, popcorn, soft drinks, apples, and baked goods. Hot chocolate, coffee, and smores will be available during the cooler weather.
Hammack will be open every Friday from 5 – 10 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. from October 10 – November 9. There will be a short day from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Oct. 4.
