Larson’s Haunted Corn Maze

July 7th, 2009 by John Wolfe

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.

    Oh…that puts me SOOOOO in the Halloween mood. Unfortunately, in Phoenix, it doesn’t feel like Halloween until January, but I like to turn the air conditioner up and darken the house and watch scary movies at least. I miss old-fashioned Halloweens. We have corn mazes here, but you wear shorts and sandals–just not the same. I hope this year you get pictures of it the event for your blog. Looks like a blast! Okay, now you’ve done it–I’m in the mood to put on the movie “Halloween” just to hear the creepy music in the background while I’m writing my horror novel.

    If you click on the link for the “maize” it states that “There will be no maize for 2008″. What about 2009? Did they stop doing the maize altogether? Thats a shame if they did. Maizes take me back to Children of the corn and scare the crap outta me!

    autumnforest,

    Glad I could be of assistance. ;) I wish you all the best with your novel! Please keep me updated on your progress.

    Evilpotpourri,

    I saw that too and I’m not sure what’s going on for 2009. I’d think they would want to let people know the status this year as they probably have already planted the corn. I’ll keep checking back and see what the word is for Halloween ’09.

    Pete,

    Awesome! Thank you so much. I appreciate your kind words as well as the link love.
