Glen Ray’s Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch is one of our favorite Fall traditions. The farm and ranch have been around for a very long time, and they recently added a fun fall event. The pumpkin patch is named for Grandpa Glen Ray Larsen who lived and supported agriculture his whole life in Utah. He was often seen driving around Spanish Fork in his “Eet Beef” truck, which is now on display at the Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch. His family has created this pumpkin patch in his memory.
We had a great time on Glen Ray’s farm. We started by winding our way through the corn maze. As you enter the corn maze, you will see a sign about the “Corn Fairy.” The Corn Fairy idea came from their Grandpa Glen who used to get up at dawn to sneak bags of corn from his farm onto his neighbor’s porches without being caught. He lovingly became known as the Corn Fairy.
Corn Fairies are hidden throughout the maze. We actually found our way out of the maze three different times, but we had to go back in to try and find all the Corn Fairies. Our boys were determined to find them all, but we ended up finding most of them. There is also a Haunted Corn Maze, but it is only open on Fridays and Saturdays.
The pumpkin patch has some really fun activities for the kids to do as well. There are huge slides, and a huge corn pit. You can climb on the tower of hay bales, or play fun yard games like Connect Four and Nine Square. Make sure to visit the Kiddie Coral that is set aside for little ones. This spot has a smaller corn pit, and a little kiddie coral where they can ride stick horses around the barrels.
Watch for all of the fun places to take photos. There are quite a few cute cut outs to pose in, as well as pumpkin displays. Make sure to take a ride on the tractor barrel ride, too. Our boys said it was fun, but super bumpy.
We had fun looking at the farm animals while we visited Glen Ray’s Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch. Some of the goats were nice and let us pet them, and the horse would eat right out of our hands. We always love seeing the animals.
There is a huge pumpkin patch where you can go out and pick your own pumpkin. This was our boys’ favorite thing, especially when the farmer handed them the cutters to go cut their own pumpkin. We found some beautiful orange pumpkins to take home and carve this year for Halloween. Glen Ray’s grows a huge variety of pumpkins, and everyone enjoyed checking out the unique colors and shapes of the pumpkins.
Glen Ray’s Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch reminded us of Jaker’s in Springville. It is a little smaller, but it was nice to have a little smaller crowd when we visited. There was still plenty to do, and we spent a few hours playing and having fun. For current prices, check out Glen Ray’s Corn Maze website.
We recommend Glen Ray’s Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch to everyone. The farm was not busy, and we almost had the whole place to ourselves. We had a ton of fun with all of the different activities. We also love supporting local farmers who are working hard. Definitely add this to your list of pumpkin patches to try.
Tips for Families
- Location: 1750 W 8000 S in Spanish Fork
- Check their website for current dates and hours.
- The property is mostly flat and would be accessible for strollers and wheel chairs, although it might be bumpy.
- Bring snacks and water because you will be there a while. They have a few fun food options like mini donuts. We like to buy a bucket of donuts to eat while we walk around and play.
- Wear sunscreen. There is no shade available.
- Wear tennis shoes. It’s not fun walking around the farm with flip flops.
