Are dogs allowed? – Yes for dog owners we have the Bark Park available for off-leash play, otherwise dogs are required on leash and not allowed in the maze.
Is there a Pumpkin Patch and Maze this year? – Every year the Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze are moved to different fields on the farm because after the crop has finished nutrients in the soil are depleted and need time to replenish. Smith Rock Ranch will always have a pumpkin patch and corn maze but they will be in different places, either on the west side of the farm, or the far east side past the animal house.
What if I have extra tokens? – The tokens may be used as credit towards your pumpkin purchase. When at the cashier they will check in everything and give you a total, then you may turn in however many tokens you have to take money off of your purchase then you would pay the rest as usual. You can also save your extra tokens and use them during the next October season.
How can I beat the lines? – We get a high amount of attendance in on the weekends because that is the only time all of the activities are open, however the earlier weekends are usually slower. Lines are also smaller in the morning, although activities and token sales will not start until after the opening time. If it’s to early to get your pumpkin then you could explore the activities early in the month and come back during our weekday hours later in the month to pick your pumpkins.
Where do I buy tokens? – Tokens can be purchased at the SRR Bank(yellow western building near parking lot), at the Harvest Market(big old barn near corral), or on very busy weekends a second ticket booth is opened near the Barnyard Golf Course.
What are tokens? – Tokens are $3.00 each and are used to do the activities so that staff does not need to keep change on hand and so the activities can operate smoother and more efficiently. The design on each token pertains to a past maze theme.
Where do I pay for pumpkins? – On weekdays pumpkins are purchased at the Harvest Market(old wood barn near the corral), and must be brought up to the Market and paid for before 6pm. On weekends pumpkins are purchased at the Weigh-n-Pay(usually set up under tents), or the Harvest Market.
How much are pumpkins? – Pumpkins out in the u-pick patch and in the big bins out in front of the Harvest Market are .30¢1b.
Why are the activities only open weekends? – Due to very low staff availability and other farm operations it is not feasible for us to have activities running all the time.
Is the maze haunted? – No. Individuals in the corn maze should not use their time in the maze to scare others especially at night because it is dangerous to both parties due to the sharp dry cornstalks, uneven ground, and diminished light.
