Frederick County Maryland is one of the largest counties land mass wise east of the Mississippi River and is rich with agriculture history. Autumn brings many opportunities for family fun like pumpkin picking, hay rides and corn mazes on local farms through out Frederick County. 

Summer’s Farm

For over 20 years, Summers Farm has become a popular destination for fall fun in Frederick County. Their Taylor Swift corn maze garnered national attention in 2015 when it caught the eye of the Today Show on NBC.

 

With over 45 fun activities, the farm is the perfect place for family fun, corporate outings, field trips, Scout outings etc..! They offer a ton of special event days; like heroes day and teacher appreciation day, and they even have fireworks and live music on certain days in October. If you do not want to partake in the entire festival experience and just want to pick your own pumpkin, that’s ok too. You can take a free wagon ride to the pumpkin patch! There’s no admission charge to pick your own. Pumpkins are sold by the pound and you pay for what you pick!

Hi Buzz- I love it!!!! Seeing some of the pumpkin farms in this month's posts makes me want to find one as large and as much fun as this one!!!   The one we used to go to in Palm Beach County was fun but nothing like this one.

October is such a fun month for that kind of farm activities, Buzz. Today, a friend of mine and I are going to visit Apple Hill, about 40 miles from Sacramento.  I'll post pictures when we return.

Hello Buzz - I learned a bit more(admittedly my previous knowledge was rather limited) about Frederick County Maryland.  Fun times of all kinds definitely seem to be on the 'playlist'.

The corn maze is pretty cool.  I have seen that they do that in my area as well.

Buzz,  now this is a place I could let my inner child out to play and have a wonderful time doing it.  I've never been to a corn maze. While not on my bucket list, if ever the opportunity presented, I would be all over it.

Good morning Buzz - I love reading about the farms and it is so great they they have fall activities.  You don't get to see as many silos today.  That is why I loved the picture.

How fun! You scored some great photos. I must tell you I would get lost in the corn maze; my sense of direction is non-existent.
