Edgewater Farms celebrating fourth year
September 21, 2022
Edgewater Farms will open their doors for the fourth year on September 23. Many residents of Broadwater County and the surrounding areas have made this a fall tradition and co-owner Nancy Davis says that is what they hoped to create. "We want a place that children can spend 3 to 4 hours and not want to leave," Davis says, "A place that families can spend time together and never run out things to keep their interest."
This year, opening weekend is going to be larger than in previous years. If you purchase an entrance ticket on Friday the 23rd, you receive a free ticket to come back Saturday the 24th. There will be door prizes every hour and a vendor fair Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The new bakery will be open making the famous chocolate chip cookies for the Sweet Shop and the Grill and this year there will also be a featured cookie of the week!
This year, the corn maze theme is "Keeping it Rural" and the maze contains a tractor, the words of the theme, a farmer and even a pig! The jumping pillow, giant slide, games and corn pit will make an appearance once again as well as additional games. New this year will be a scavenger hunt for attendees. "There will be clues found throughout the farm," Davis says, "When children find all the clues, they will receive a small prize!"
The maze is open Fridays from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. throughout their season and Davis says they are always looking for interested employees that want to have a great time while working. A special event for October 29th is also planned as well as apple shooting, hayrides and simply spending time in a beautiful location. Admission prices have remained the same this year at $10 a person (age 4 and older) and the admission is good for the day!
Nancy Davis says she enjoys running the maze and watching families enjoying time together. Davis ran a maze in 2001 and says even though times have changed the purpose of the maze remains the same, "to allow families a place to go and a place to build traditions." You can join the fun starting Friday September 23, 2022 at 4 p.m. The location is 6 miles south of Townsend at 8410 Hwy 287.
