While you're at the farm, you can also feed goats and sheep, and find your way out of the 5-acre corn maze. It costs $6 a person to take part in the maze, according to the website. There is also a children's maze that is $2 per child. There is also an opportunity to pick your own flowers with a mix of perennials and zinnias, to make a bouquet for $10.
