2. Lapoint Corn Maze, Pumpkin Patch and Farm Yard Fun Park is on the same working farm that's been lovingly worked by our Harrison/Nyberg family for over 100 years! We have grown alfalfa, corn, and oats along with cattle (both dairy and beef), hogs, horses, sheep and maybe even a few pygmy goats, plus chickens and a few other birds.
We also have a GIANT garden and provide local, fresh veggies to farmers' markets, individuals, and local stores. Lapoint Sweet Corn is famous for its flavor and freshness!!!
The 2021 season is our SIXTH YEAR putting on a corn maze because it's SO much fun - we have fun here, and you will too!
The maze is HUGE - and is actually four mazes in one! All are accessible to strollers and wheelchairs.
- two big mazes
- a kids' maze, and
- the Field of Fear (haunted maze)
We hope your family will join our family and GET LOST!
