Ackerman Farm

Arriving at the farm

The gang

Life is very good!!!!

Headed to the maze

Getting started! The goal was to find 16 letters that spell a secret message-if you decide to do the corn maze know this: it is really a challenge!!!!!

I couldn't help thinking about Children of the Corn while we were in here!

The 3 that didn't make it 'til the end. They were hot/tired/thirsty so Fiona and Ella (who HAD to figure out the message) went with Derek to find the remaining clues.
What was the secret message???? You'll have to head over and do the maze to find out :)

I think we have found the best kept secret near Morton!! We visited Ackerman Farm this weekend and WOW it was awesome!! It is small enough to still have that personal touch (we met Farmer John the owner) but big enough to offer lots to do for a variety of ages (which translates into even the 11 year old had fun!). I was so impressed at the fair prices of their products! Even their gift shop items (which are adorable!!) were reasonable. We did do the corn maze (about $23 for the 7 of us) and purchased 9 pumpkins and 3 gourds ($27) so our grand total for this field trip was $50!! Now for a family of seven, we think that is great!! The majority of their pumpkins are 3 for $10 and they are HUGE!! We also chose some really cool, funky gourds and some little, bitty gourds that are so cute. If you are looking for a really nice place to spend the afternoon take the drive over to Morton-it really is worth it!

Thanks Farmer John!!
