It's pumpkin patch and corn maze time!
Today, Oct. 1 is the first day that Enumclaw's Thomasson Family Farm is in operation to start the fall celebration, and this year, Darigold has partnered with them to bring a 216,000-square-foot corn maze to the South Sound through the month.
According to a Darigold press release, this year’s maze spells out the word “Farmalicious” and raise awareness for Darigold as a unique, farmer-owned business.
A visit to the Thomasson farm wouldn't be complete without a stop in the pumpkin patch to take one of those bright orange orbs home with you. And kids won't want to miss the Kids Korral activity area that features everthing from riding a tractor train, playing in the corn box, navigating the hay maze to trying learning about working on a farm.
Special activities, in association with Darigold, are planned for the weekends of October 13 & 14 and October 20 & 21. Attendees on those days will receive a goodie bag chock-full of Farmalicious goodness, and Darigold will also set-up a sample booth featuring some of its most popular products.
Thomasson Family Farm is located at 38223 236th Avenue SE in Enumclaw. Operation hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. from Oct. 1 to Oct. 31. The nighttime corn maze is open to the public on Oct. 26 and Oct. 27 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Admission ranges from $6 to $7.50. Visit www.thomassonfamilyfarm.com for more information.
