Family-Friendly Fall Activities Pay Off
Each fall Knollbrook Farm in Goshen, Ind., offers outdoor activities for visitors of all ages. The family dairy farm grows corn, soybeans, and alfalfa hay but has made a name for itself with zany activities, including a pumpkin slingshot, jump pad, petting zoo, corn maze, Super Mega Slide, cow train ride, and more.
Owners John and Cynthia Adam are first-generation dairy farmers. While they started their dairy operation with 13 cows in 1998, they now manage a herd of 130. These days the entire family gets involved with farm work, including the Adamís five children.
Every fall, Knollbrook Farm opens up to the public for opportunities for education and play. The farmís famous corn maze contains more than five miles of pathways within a 12-acre field. Within it are 12 posts that contain clues for a mystery maze, the theme of which changes year to year. Past themes have included the Revolutionary War and Bible trivia. The maze itself is geared for all ages and includes plenty of exits around the perimeter in case little ones need a break.
Another highlight is a 50-ft. Super Mega Slide, a ride where kids can reach speeds of 20 miles per hour sliding down on inner tubes.
