FAQ

Accessibility: Bloomsbury Farm is handicapped accessible. The corn maze, and most farm attractions, however, are on unpaved farm ground. Wheel chairs, strollers and wagons can be brought on premises and are able to complete the corn maze, but the ground (like any farm) can be bumpy, and sometimes even muddy, in spots. Please use your own discretion.

Restrooms: Bloomsbury Farm has permanent, handicapped accessible restrooms, with diaper-changing stations in both the men’s and women’s restrooms.

Money: Bloomsbury Farm accepts cash, debit cards, credit cards (Mastercard, Visa, and Discover) and checks. Our cash registers are not equipped, however, to accept chickens, corn, or your children as payment. We also have an ATM on site for your convenience.

Pets: We do not allow pets, due to insurance reasons. Thank you for your cooperation!

Weather: Extreme, unforeseen weather can force us to close at any time. Please call ahead if you plan to visit on a rainy/stormy day to see if we will be open. No refunds will be given due to crummy weather during your visit. Please plan ahead.

Attire: Because we operate in September and October, we recommend being prepared for cool weather. We also recommend wearing closed-toe shoes or sneakers. Remember that you will be in a farm atmosphere and should dress appropriately for the best experience.

Busy Times: Keep in mind that weekends are our busiest times. You may want to plan your outing on weekdays or on Saturday mornings if you are looking for a smaller crowd.

Is the Farm open during the summer? During the summer, the Farm is open by appointment only and for Special Events that we host. We are a great facility for hosting Birthday Parties, Anniversary Parties, Weddings & Receptions, Graduation Parties, etc. during the summer. Check out our Calendar of Events to see what Events we have coming up!  We also offer School Tours during the spring and summer for Daycares and Elementaries.

Are there refunds if guests leave due to rain? No, but you can check with the ticket booth before you leave Bloomsbury to see if they will give you a rain ticket or discount voucher, allowing you to return on a future date. Can groups bring their own food? Yes, as long as it is kept in our picnic area. Though we do sell lots of yummy food onsite, you are welcome to bring your own as well. We have a large cement area near our concession stand, with picnic tables that are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Additionally, we do have private barns that can be reserved for groups or parties. Check out our Group Events page for more details on this.

What age group is Bloomsbury most appropriate for? One of the great things about Bloomsbury is the fact that it offers something that everyone, of all ages, can enjoy. From babies, all the way up to grandma and grandpa, our goal is to make sure everyone in your group leaves with memories to cherish.

How big is the Corn Maze? The Corn Maze is cut into 10 acres of corn. It contains over 2 miles of twisting and turning paths to challenge folks of all ages.

How long does it take to get through the maze? It all depends on many wrong turns you take. The average person will finish the Corn Maze within one hour. The Kid’s Maze is shorter and should only take about 15 minutes to navigate. Some people have taken a lot longer and a few a bit quicker.

Will I get lost in the Corn Maze? We hope so! It’s designed to be that way. While everyone does get lost to different degrees, we have designed the maze to be an interactive activity that makes a trip inside the maze more than just a walk through some corn. At various points throughout the maze, there will be signs offering you ways to get clues as to which way to turn.

How do you make the maze? We plant the whole field in the spring and then cut out the design when the corn plants are still fairly short. The design is created on a computer and then transferred into the cornfield.

Can I eat the corn? You could, but it would not taste very good. The variety of corn that we grow is used as feed for animals or as a raw product at manufacturing plants.
