I have impossibly high standards when it comes to pumpkin patches. Basically, they define Fall for me, and since Fall is my favorite season, that’s a tall order. Unfair, I know, but I make no apologies. With those ivory tower standards in mind, I am happy to report that Andelin Family Farm is as close as you can come to perfection in the Reno area.
The list of enjoyment at Andelin Family Farms goes on and on. There’s a preschooler garden where young kids can practice gardening. There’s lassoing practice, bean bag tossing, hay bale climbing fun. But by far, my most favorite item are the corn mazes. There are two. The smaller 1/2 acre children’s maze has corn at 4.5 feel tall (tall enough to confuse the kids, but short enough that parents can see them wandering about). The Nevada Proud Corn Maze is 4.5 acres of tall corn and this year features the young adult version of the hunt for the pie stealing animal. Called “The Farm Scene Investigation”, Farmer Joe is once again in trouble. He’s missing, and foul play is expected. It’s likely some farm animal kidnapped him, and it’s up to you to find out who. You need to find six hidden places within the larger maze to help answer the riddle of the missing farmer.
*Pony and Horse rides (on Saturdays, holidays and school break days) for $4.00 per ride.
Corn Maze Admission Price is $4.00 when purchased as an add-on to the pumpkin patch admission or $6.00 as a separate activity without pumpkin patch admission. Children under 3 are free to the corn maze. Our corn maze this year is themed Nevada Proud for the 150th birthday of the state of Nevada
