It started with a love of fresh corn and a single acre.
Begun in 1978 by Channing’s Mom and Dad, this second-generation farm has grown to 75 acres including a six-acre corn maze where kids of all ages try to find their way, and corporate teams overcome obstacles to achieve their mission. The design changes every year, themed around a charity.
Channing and Amy call themselves “freshness fanatics”. Let’s start with corn. It’s never more than two hours off the stalk and only the top cob is picked for total farm freshness. There’s a Shuckin’ Shack so you can leave with just the corn. You can go online and rent their pot and burner for a party. Strom’s also grows popcorn you can pick in the fall, dry, and then watch it pop off the cob in your microwave.
“We offer a quality product and a genuine experience,” says Amy. That goes for everything they do. Come fall, their farmyard is filled with 7,000 pumpkins, as well as thousands of gourds and cornstalks for decorating. It’s when Harvest Fun kicks in, featuring a host of family activities such as Pumpkin Chuckin’, wagon rides, pedal carts and the challenge of unique mazes.
With the advent of the sweet corn season, the bakery opens to handmade pies with pumpkin grown on the farm and fruit from local growers. And pizza, with corn salsa of course, is available on weekends.
On-Farm Market daily, Aug 1 to Oct 31, 9:30 am to 6 pm. Harvest Fun, weekends, Sept 22 to Oct 28, 9:30 am to 6 pm. Nightly corn maze, Oct 17 to Oct 31, 6 to 9 pm, excluding Sundays.
