Corn Maze
When people visit the Growing Family Fun Corn Maze in September and October, they are provided with a map and instructions on the maze activity. Our maze has two entrances on the north side of the field and two emergency exits on the east and west sides. There is no single way in and out of the maze. When we have dry conditions, the maze paths are smooth enough for wheelchairs and strollers.

Hidden inside the 10-acre cornfield are 20 fence posts. Each fence post is numbered and has a unique paper punch chained to it. When a fence post is found, guests punch the matching box on their maps. It takes guests, on average, 20 minutes to an hour to complete the maze. When all of the posts are found, guests show us their maps and receive a coupon for a free slice of Casey’s homemade-to-go pizza.

Fun Zone
With the purchase of a corn maze admission, guests automatically receive access to the Fun Zone. The Fun Zone features 20 family friendly outdoor activities for children and adults to enjoy. The activities include the giant slide, jump pad, swings, a tractor tire swing, rubber duck races, patio maze, table maze, pedal karts, tricycles, hamster roll, corn bin, and corn hole toss game. We also feature two farmer built ADA-accessible hayracks.

Red Shed
The Red Shed at Geisler Farms is the hub of all farm activity. Inside you may pay for admission to the Corn Maze and Fun Zone. You will also find ADA-accessible restrooms, concessions, tables and chairs, Iowa-made soy candles, homemade jams, honey and frozen Emma Krumbee take and bake pies and apple crisp.

Group Visits
If your group of corn maze enthusiasts would like to use a firepit and have a hayride together, we offer advance group reservations. Otherwise any group may visit on the weekend without a reservation. We offer three firepits for group reservation. Please see our Groups page for details.

Pumpkins 

Geisler Farms is passionate about pumpkins. Nothing says fall like a sea of orange pumpkins on a green lawn. Our pumpkin patch is conveniently located next to the parking lot on the west side of the barn. Pumpkins are sold on Saturdays and Sundays. There is no admission charged to visit the pumpkins. We do not have a wagon ride to our pumpkins. During the week, we harvest pumpkins from our 10-acre field and move them to our patch.  During the peak in October, there are thousands of pumpkins to select from.

You may borrow one of our yellow wagons and select the perfect jack o’lanterns. Before you complete your purchase, there are other fall decorations to select from including straw, corn shocks, Indian corn, heirloom pumpkins, squash and mini pumpkins. We have a weigh and pay station at the barn. We accept cash, credit and debit cards.
