The annual corn maze and pumpkin patch will return through Oct. 31 at Darnell Farms in Bryson City.


Visit the farm for some old-fashioned fun. Walk through the corn maze ($12 admission), enjoy a hayride ($18 admission) and visit the huge six-acre pumpkin patch, where you and your family choose your perfect Jack O’ Lantern. Prices vary by size.

There will also be food trucks, farm stand, apples and fall decor onsite. For more information, go to
