Bishop's Orchards | Connecticut

One of the few commercial farms that remains of Guilford’s agricultural heritage, Bishop’s Orchards continues a tradition that dates back over 150 years to the original 52-acre farm that the family’s great-great-grandfather Walter purchased in 1871. Their goal has remained the same through all the years to provide their customers with the freshest, best-quality farm products possible, grown with integrity and concern for our environment. Enjoy a variety of activities, foods, u-pick options, and fun!

Are you willing to go to Nightmare Acres? We hope you’ll be brave enough, because this Utah farm is where you go to have nightmares, NOT sweet dreams! Get lost in the vast, bone-chilling maze with your friends and family, but BEWARE - even the most spirited of adventurers rarely make it through.

This one may be for the older school-age kids. As if one haunted house isn't enough, this farm has FIVE just to keep you afraid all night long! Choose from ChainSaw Mayhem, the UNDEAD, the Mouth of Madness and more. For the real die-hards, we dare you to then go into the largest corn maze in Phoenix, Arizona. We're scared already.
