Glen Ray’s Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch is new this year. The farm and ranch have been around for a very long time, but this is the first time they decided to host a Fall gathering. The pumpkin patch is named for Grandpa Glen Ray Larsen who lived and supported agriculture his whole life in Utah. He was often seen driving around Spanish Fork in his “Eet Beef” truck, which is now on display at the Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch. His family has created this pumpkin patch in his memory.
We had a great time on Glen Ray’s farm. We started by winding our way through the corn maze. As you enter the corn maze, you will see a sign about the “Corn Fairy.” The Corn Fairy idea came from their Grandpa Glen who used to get up at dawn to sneak bags of corn from his farm onto his neighbor’s porches without being caught. He lovingly became known as the Corn Fairy.
Now you can try to find all 10 Corn Fairies that are hidden throughout the maze and earn a treat. We actually found our way out of the maze three different times, but we had to go back in to try and find all the Corn Fairies. Our boys were determined. We ended up only finding most of them, but they were nice and still let us have a treat. There is also a Haunted Corn Maze, but it is only open on Fridays and Saturdays.
The pumpkin patch had some really fun activities for the kids to do as well. There are huge slides, including one that slides into the large corn pit they have. You can climb on the tower of hay bales, or play games like Connect Four. There is also an area just for the little ones with a smaller corn pit, and a little kiddie coral where they can ride stick horses around the barrels.
Watch for all of the fun places to take photos. There are quite a few. Make sure to take a ride on the tractor barrel ride, too. Our boys said it was fun, but super bumpy.
We had fun looking at the farm animals while we visited Glen Ray’s Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch. Some of the goats were nice and let us pet them, and the horse would eat right out of our hands. We always love seeing the animals.
There is a huge pumpkin patch where you can go out and pick your own pumpkin. This was our boys’ favorite thing, especially when the farmer handed them the cutters to go cut their own pumpkin. We found some beautiful orange pumpkins to take home and carve this year for Halloween.
Glen Ray’s Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch reminded us of Jaker’s in Springville. It is a little smaller, but it was nice to have a little smaller crowd when we visited. There was still plenty to do, and the price wasn’t too bad. It’s $4 to do everything except the corn mazes, which is perfect for young kids. If you want to add the corn maze, it bumps the price to $8. The corn maze was fun, and my kids spent over an hour searching for the Corn Fairies, so it was probably worth that cost. If you add a trip through the haunted corn maze, it raises the price to $15, but once again that is only available on Friday and Saturday.
We recommend Glen Ray’s Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch. The farm was not busy, and we almost had the whole place to ourselves. We had a ton of fun with all of the different activities. We also love supporting local farmers who are working hard. Definitely add this to your list of pumpkin patches to try.
