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!

Hello Roy and now that is one maze for people to get lost in.  I have never been in a maze like that!

LOVE all of this. Corn mazes used to be a tradition in my family...we went every year. Have not done one in several years though. I really should suggest we bring back that tradition!

It's fun to see these places come alive at this time of year.  We enjoyed one back in Canada a few years ago and the grandkids had a blast.
