IMG_6190

Strom's Farm Guelph Ontario

Just on the outskirts of the city of Guelph, you can find a fantastic family farm for some great fall fun with your family.  Strom’s Farm is a 2nd generation family farm currently owned by Channing and Amy Strom.  From the details of all the activities to the owner’s walking around and engaging with the visitors, you can definitely feel the love and pride of ownership as you spend time at Strom’s.  It is truly  a fantastic place and and that is why we wanted to share with you why our family loved it so much.  Strom’s Farm definitely deserves a visit from your family!

Harvest Fun Activities run every Weekend thru Oct. 27 where you can enjoy the 6 acre corn maze, tile, rope, cedar and straw maze, wagon rides, pedal carts, corn trail, sand pile, pumpkin chuckin’, puppet show and homegrown popcorn!

Upon arrival we looked around and thought that we wouldn’t be there for long as at first glance there didn’t look like there was that much to do.  Boy were we wrong!!  When you go, plan to spend hours there as there is so much to do and see!

Unleash the kids from the van and they went running off in different directions to go have some fun.  We reeled them back in and the FUN began…

Pumpkin Chuckin’

Slingshotting gourds sound like fun?  Oh yes it is!  Safety goggles on and we were ready to launch gourds into the field to try and hit the targets.

This show will have the kids laughing, cheering and clapping.  The show takes place 3 times per day for your enjoyment so you can watch it more than once while you enjoy a little rest and some popcorn.

A-Mazing Mazes

Heading into the 6 acre corn maze you are given a word find and your mission is to go into the maze and find all the clue boxes which contains the words you need to circle. You are also given a map to find the clues and good luck wishes.  Really how challenging could this be?  HA I had no idea.  This maze is huge and very well laid out but I still managed to get lost and turned around a few times.  I think we were probably in there twisting and turning for a good hour.  A total blast though and a must do when you visit Strom’s.

Made it out of the corn maze and ready for your next challenge?  Next you can move on to the Tile Maze, Rope Maze or Straw Maze.

The Straw Maze looks easy until you read the main rule…You can ONLY turn right in the maze!

The Kids loved the Rope Maze and did it over and over again to see who could do it the quickest!

The Tile Maze was my brain teaser for the day.  I stood there for 20 mins with a bunch of adults trying to figure it out.  I am happy to say that I did finally figure it out and then headed off to find my family as they had taken off long before!  I could share the secret with you but I think it’s more fun for you to figure it out for yourself when you go.  Good luck! :-)

Also be sure to save some time for the sand pile, pedal carts, Spiral maze, wagon ride and of course to take some pictures!

 Feeling Hungry?

All the fun made us hungry so we headed over to grab some hot dogs and fries from the food barn.  You can also get sausages, homemade pizza and homegrown popcorn to nibble on. Oh and we dare you to go into the bakery and NOT buy something!  The smells that welcome you when you walk into the bakery will make you salivate.  We tried their apple crisps, butter tarts and a pumpkin pie and they were all delicious.
