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.
There are actually three different mazes. A short one with fun farm animals to find. A medium sized one with the Corn fairies. And a difficult one, which we did not attempt! Our boys are always determined to find them all, and if you do make sure to take a photo with each one and take it to the snack shack for a treat. 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. This year they added a fun jumping pad, and a basketball game. We always spend a ton of time playing at all the games.
Make sure to visit the Kiddie Coral that is set aside for little ones. There are some animals to see, as well as a cute little kiddie coral where they can ride stick horses asround 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.
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.
We really like Glen Ray’s Corn Maaze and Pumpkin Patch. 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. For other Fall activities in Utah, check out our list of favorites.
