Looking to get lost in a corn maze, cuddle goats or pick your own fruit?

Look no further — here’s the info you need on our favorite farm festivals. We’ll add to this list throughout the season. 


:: Pick Your Own Apples: Blueberry Thrill Farm has a wide variety of apples that ripen from late August to mid October. Pick a peck for $15 — thats 11 pounds. A half peck is $8. Get there from Southern Pines in about an hour and a half.

:: Kalawi Farms: It’s still hot enough to enjoy handmade ice cream. Eat it in a corn maze or on a hayride at Kalawi Farms, and let the kids enjoy a giant barrel slide built into a hill, or a miniature barrel train. A “blob” jump pillow has recently been added to the kids’ area. Prices vary per activity. Info.

:: Ken’s Korny Corn Maze: If you’re into getting lost, this is home to North Carolina’s first and longest-running maze. Find it in Garner, about an hour’s drive. Info. 

:: Gross Farms, Sanford: A 15-acre corn maze, you-pick pumpkin patch and produce barn are just a few of the offerings. Info.

:: Fall Horse Farm Tour: Get an inside look at six local horse farms, and see equine demonstrations. Proceeds benefit the Prancing Horse Center for Therapeutic Horsemanship. Info.
