It’s time for Fordyce Farm’s Haunted Corn Maze. We are open Thursday nights till 9:00pm with no monsters, only $5 for adults and $4:00 six to twelve. Friday and Saturday nights we are open till 10:00 with monsters galore, $10:00 a head. Hopefully you’ll keep your head!
Pumpkins, we got fields full of em, big, medium, pie pumpkins, orange, white, and warted. Cornstalks, gourds, straw bales; we got em too.
We offer entertainment; a hay fort, indoor hay maze coloring station, animals and hay rides (when available and on weekends), and of course, our AWESOME corn maze.
Our corn maze is navigated by answering questions: at each branch in the path, there is a sign with questions; take the path you think is the right answer. It’s lots of fun and you might even learn a thing or two. Our theme this year is Ghosts.
We have apples galore, fall produce, strawberries, and, as always, the best baked goods, ice cream, and milkshakes. Time to eat!
There is NO CHARGE to enter our pumpkin patch, no charge for any of our entertainment, except the corn maze, which is $5.00 for adults, $4.00 six to twelve, and under six free .
Our store is open 9 to 6, Thursdays our corn maze is available till 9pm so our customers can go through in the dark. Friday and Saturday our corn maze is haunted dusk till 10:00pm. Sundays we are open noon till six.
Apple season is here and they are ripe and ready for the picking. All the apples we grow are $.75 a pound u-pick and $1.25 at our store. These are excellent apples for storing, baking, and eating ou of hand.
Now available: Enterprise, Liberty, Karmajin, and Gold Rush.
Here is an unusual fruit: quince is shaped like a pear, has fuzzy skin like a peach, and has yellow flesh that turns pink when cooked.
Quince is quite hard when raw so is usually eaten cooked. The flavor is tart like a lemon but distinctively unique.
We use this fruit many different ways. When frying potatoes we add a little quince for flavor and tang. We cook roast pork with quince and onions. We also cook it with water, sugar, cinnamon, and cloves. Because quince is very high in pectin, this cooks to a marmalade that we use for quince tart or on top of cheese cake.
quince are available u-pick for $.75 a pound or at our store for $1.25.
Yes it’s true! We have an abundance of seascape strawberries, which is an ever bearing variety. They are bigger then hoods and almost just as sweet. The best part about them is they continue bearing until mid October! They are available for u-pick and already picked in our store. They are $1.25 a lb u-pick and $32 a crate already picked.
Black currants are now available u-pick. Black currants are among the most nutritious of all fruits, packed with vitamins, anti-oxidants, and even iron. Blueberries are pretty good for you, too, and guess what?
The blueberries are already ripe and ready to pick (and available in our store). Plus:
Gooseberries! Don't you need more gooseberries in your life? I know I do. We offer red gooseberries which are crunchy like a green grape and sweet enough to eat out of hand. The flavor is something like a kiwi.
We offer many different varieties of blooming perennials and roses. Our perennials have all been tested in our own gardens and are excellent performers and reliably hardy. Our roses are grown on their own roots, unlike the bare-root roses sold in stores which are grafted. this makes our roses more reliably hardy.
We offer tomatoes, both modern short-season and heirloom varieties.
Love our strawberries? We sell the plants, along with current, gooseberries, raspberries, and blackberries..
Prices: gallon perennials, $8.00, 2 gallon, $14.00. Gallon roses, 11.00, 2 gallon 19.00. Fruiting plants are $5.00. These are really good prices!
Monday through Saturday, 9:00 to 6:00, we are open for the 2018 season with already-picked Seascape strawberries. U-pick Hood strawberries will begin Wednesday May 30th. Also available: baked goods, produce, blooming perennials, and roses.
Its the last week of July but only the middle of the Blueberry season. There are LOTS and LOTS of blueberries ripe and ready to pick. Raspberries are done for now and the Kotatas wont last much longer. Triple crown blackberries have just begun, along with our first apples and plums. Blueberries are a long-season crop and good picking should be available til mid August.
Hood strawberries are still availabe u-pick, but are no longer available in our store. Amazingly, strawberries will return in August through October with Seascape everbearing strawberries which are pretty delicious. Raspberries and BLACK CURRANTS are now availble u-pick.
Amazingly, our corn maze is still standing...Read More

And they should win prizes: Triple Crown blackberries are large, sweet, mild in flavor, and very easy to pick as they are THORNLESS! Triple Crowns season usually runs the month of August, but, like all other fruits this year, are about two weeks early. Peak season is here now and I expect Triple Crowns to be available till mid August.
Well, lots of them, anyway! Freestone peaches are now availble...Read More
Summer baking season is here.Read More
Ever seen these? They are black currants. They are NOT delicious to eat out of hand, but make absolutely superior juice and jellies...Read More
I love being able to offer unusual fruits to my customers. And what are these beautiful things? Pink currants! they look like jewellery, don't they?
Red currants (which we also offer) are very tart. Pink currants are light and sweet in flavor; something like pink champagne.
Then, maybe some pies. These beauties are apple/blackberry. I make more of these than any other variety because they are very popular and because I only use fresh fruit and apples are always available fresh.
We know have u-pick blueberries, kotota blackberries, black currants, and raspberries. They are all $1.25 a lb and are also available already picked at our store.
