Swank Farms' Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch


Every October, Swank Farms opens its gates to the public for its annual Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch.  Located on San Felipe Road, just past the north end of the Hollister Airport, the annual event has something for everyone of all ages, from a huge jumping pillow for the tots to a petting corral, pedal karts, pumpkin toss, pig races, pick-your-own pumpkins, and more.

The piece de résistance is the Maniac Maze. Every year, Bonnie Swank designs a new amazing corn maze to challenge the young and old. This year, the theme is Alien Invasion, which goes along with Swank Farms' spooky haunted Terror in the Corn. The Maniac Maze is open during the day all this week until November 1. If you want to try the maze at night, it's open on Halloween night. It may be also open on Friday and Saturday. Given them a call to make sure -- 831-637-4704. 

Today, I'm linking up with Monday Mellow Yellows. To see other mellow yellow posts, please click here.

The pigs flashed by so quickly, my camera caught nothing but their dust.

    1. The goats were my favorite things at the farm. If they were open year-round, I'd probably stop by often just to say hello to the guys and gals.
