Tolmachoff Farms - Pumpkin Days and Corn Maze

We recently visited the Pumpkin Days and Corn Maze at Tolmachoff Farms in Glendale. Yes, we realize that Glendale is not in the east valley, but we figured it might  be worth the drive if we had enough fun (and we did). Both of our sets of kiddos had a grand time in the mini corn maze, riding a pony, shooting the tomato cannon, playing on the playground, petting the animals, and so much more. One especially neat feature the children loved were the corn boxes.  Think sand box, but with corn instead. They all laid down and made "corn angels."  It was great. The farm offers two corn mazes: the mini maze which takes about 10 minutes, and the six acre family maze that takes about an hour. The hour long maze sounded really fun as it involves a map and a search, but we opted for the shorter maze due to the warmth of the day.


We really liked Tolmachoff Farms and believe that it is worth the drive to Glendale. The east valley has many of its own fall-themed attractions, but many of them are too small or too crowded. This farm seemed to be perfectly in the middle. The staff was very friendly, the farm was clean and pleasant, the atmosphere was peaceful and fun, and the activities were numerous.

The family-friendly farm turns into AZ Field of Screams at night. Our kiddos are a little too young for scary but if yours aren't then you might want to check it out.

Overall, we had a great time and would recommend Tolmachoff Farms to your family.
