Bob's Corn & Pumpkin Farm
We got into the fall spirit over the weekend and decided to head to Snohomish to check out Bob's Corn & Pumpkin Farm. We arrived shortly after 11 to throngs of families enjoying everything Bob's had to offer—a kiddie corn maze, rope maze, an apple cannon, two pumpkin patches, and a regular corn maze. There was food everywhere: pumpkin donuts, coffee, warm cider, fresh corn on the cob...the atmosphere was almost carnival or fair-like.
Our first stop was coffee, and then off to pumpkin patch #1 to get our bearings and get away from the crowds. We wandered around a bit, sipping coffee and pointing out "good pumpkins" to each other, once coffees were finished we decided it was time to head to the corn maze. In the time it took us to drink our coffees and wander the first pumpkin patch, the size of the crowds had easily doubled! We decided to grab some cider to sip through out the maze, mostly because we didn't want to head back into the crowd once we'd finished the maze and picked pumpkins.
The maze ended up taking nearly two hours to complete—we tried not to rely on the map but ended up using it for the last 2/3 of the maze because we kept getting turned around or stuck going through the same section. It was fun passing by people just as lost as we were and hearing groups trying to navigate "by the sun." After the maze, we picked out a few pumpkins and headed to Red Hook Brewery in Woodinville for some lunch before making the drive back home.
