Fleitz Pumpkin Farm is the perfect place to spend a fall day. It is an affordable, fun day out for all the family! Read on to find out more…
The History Of Fleitz Pumpkin Farm
In 1991. Paul Fleitz wanted to give pumpkin farming a try. That first year the farm grew half an acre of pumpkins and sold them from their front yard. In 1993, Paul created a maze from a snow fence, tying a corn stalk on both sides of all the slats. This resulted in the first corn maze in the area, and it is possible it started the corn maze mania!
In 1999, the tiny maze was expanded to cover over 6 acres of land, with two mazes, one of one acre and one of five acres.
In 2000, the snack shop was opened.

One-Acre Corn Maze
The 1-acre corn maze is perfect for visitors who come to the farm and want to challenge themselves. As it is an acre (1/2 size of a soccer pitch), you cannot get too lost in this maze. This maze is perfect for the younger farm visitors. It takes around 12 minutes to complete this maze.
Five-Acre Corn Maze
The 5-acre is a unique maze with a 15-foot tower from the top of which visitors can see the entire maze from a ‘bird’s eye view’. There are also ten stops within the maze and each stop gives visitors a fun fact about the farm.
There are maps available in the maze so that visitors do not get too lost! A great challenge for visitors is ticking off all 10 stops whilst inside the maze.
A gentle wander around the maze can take up to 30 minutes. If you are after the challenge of finding all the 10 stops, then it can take over an hour.
A popular attraction at the farm is the Hayrides. This ride is incredibly relaxing. Visitors can observe the orchards, the cornfields, and the entire pumpkin patch.
A Pumpkin Farm with all the bells and whistles. A maze, pumpkins galore, and delicious food. The cider and pumpkin donuts are delicious but the donut dogs are AMAZING. So light and crispy filled with a top quality dog or maybe cheese. Got mine with the maple dip a perfect combination. Friendly service is a plus.Jeffrey R. (Yelp)
