2023 Corn Maze Features Ice Cream at Moulton Farm, Meredith NH

September 23, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Starting September 23, have fun getting lost, picking pumpkins, and enjoying local food

For their 21st annual corn maze, the Moulton Farm team was inspired by the farm’s history and the newest attraction at the lakes region farm. The 2023 design is a giant ice cream cones and ice cream scoops celebrating the farm’s ice cream stand and food truck launch earlier this year.

“The idea came about at a farm team meeting during which we ate a fair amount of our ice cream,” admits John Moulton with a laugh. “But it, like our ice cream, ties into my family’s history of running this farm.”

Moulton’s family has farmed at the Meredith location for over 130 years. His father ran it as a dairy farm for years. “I think my father would be pleased that our ice cream benefits our farm as well as another small business started by a fourth generation farmer and a family run dairy farm that supplies the milk for our ice cream.”

As for the corn maze’s ice cream cone design, Moulton and the team at the farm aren’t giving any clues about the solution for getting through the maze. “Let’s just say ice cream isn’t the only thing that will make your brain freeze!” jokes Wes Thomas, who has been working at the farm since he was 14 and designing their mazes since 2007. “It’s a sweet design sure to get you turned around.”

The maze will open on Saturday, September 23. Visitors can enjoy pumpkin hunting, either in the farm’s “pick your own” pumpkin patch or from among the pre-picked pumpkins grown at the farm, and there are other reasons to visit.

Wagon rides will be offered on most weekends and are free. Live music is also happening on select Saturdays and Sundays. Fall displays and games will make for good pictures, and the farm’s garden center will feature items to use for decorating.

Food featuring produce grown at the farm and Moulton Farm ice cream will be available from the farm’s food truck. Other classic fall favorites will be available at the Cider Bellies Doughnut stand and at the farm’s market including apple crisp, freshly baked pies and whoopie pies in several flavors made in the farm’s kitchen and bakery. Yankee Magazine called Moulton Farm’s whoopie pies “the best in New England.”

Moulton Farm’s corn maze opens September 23 and will be open 7 days a week starting at 8 am. The last admission to the maze is one hour before the farm closes. Admission costs $10 per person with a special $6 rate for each child between 6 years and 3 years of age. Children under 3 years old are free.
