There’s something phenomenal about haunting and being haunted in the elements at Halloween e.g., yard haunts, haunted hayrides, pumpkin patches and corn mazes. Sure indoor haunts are great and have many advantages, but given the option, I’d take a harvest moon, a nip in the air, and a couple zombies chasing me through a field of dried-up cornstalks any
day night. Fortunately, thanks to the good folks at Larson’s Farm, that option is available. Well, it’s available if you live in Connecticut; if not, most major farming communities throughout the country have variations on the haunted hayride and/or corn maze.
In my neck of the woods, we have Wagner’s Farms in Corrales, New Mexico (near Albuquerque) that hosts a corn maze every year. Wagner’s is the same location where I purchase the stalks for my haunt. They carve up the maze and I haul away the “debris.” So, if you’ve got a hankering to be haunted in the great outdoors this fall, check your local listings, I’m sure there’s a farm with a corpse or two basking in the moonlight and waiting on your arrival.
