I’m gonna call it now: Corn Pits are gonna be the new Pumpkin Spice.
Next fall, all you’re gonna hear about is CORN PITS.
I didn’t even know what a corn pit was until this month. I somehow failed my two older children. I feel like I need to write them letters of apology.
(Dear Kids, I’m super sorry for denying you what appears to be the greatest joy of Childhood. Love, Your Terrible Mama.)
Imagine a sand box. But with dried corn kernels. That, my friends, is a corn pit. Babystar played in the corn pit at Lawyer’s Winterbrook Farms for a LITERAL HOUR and then went back for more. (As reported by my husband, because I wasn’t there for this particular trip. The two of them spent $17 for admission and $7.50 for food.) Babystar talked about the corn pit for two weeks. In a row. Without stopping. Ever. So we all went back to the farm. ($37 admission plus $9 for three cups of hay pellets plus $23.50 for human food.)
Lawyer’s Winterbrook Farms is legit. Too bad it is one hundred hours away from our house. It was worth it, though. Babystar got to reunite with her beloved corn pit. I got to commune with goats. (I love goats. When I grow up I want to live with some goat friends. That is a serious life goal.)
HEY GOATS HEY!! (And sheep. I know.)
Winterbrook Farm has other awesome stuff. Apparently the Corn Maze is one of the coolest in the area, but the toddler wasn’t having it.
We played on a giant slide and climbed some huge haystacks. We rode a tiny train and raced in potato sacks. We played the most absurdly awesome racing game ever, with rubber ducks and water pumps and it sounds ridiculous but I kind of want one at my house now.
WE MOSTLY HUNG OUT IN THE CORN PIT THO.
RAISING BABYSTAR: $21,968.93

Get some goats. They’re super fun (though trimming their hooves is decidedly un-fun). Also, the corn pit looks amazing. Wonder how much it would cost to recreate it….
Corn pits are everywhere this year! I don’t think I’ve ever seen them before and I grew up in Iowa but like every pumpkin patch within 100 miles of where I live seems to have one this year.

HAHA! Corn pits are all around here, too. I wouldn’t let me kids play in them… Usually I see them in crummy-looking barns, and all I can imagine are bugs in there … especially ticks, because this is a high tick area. But that’s probably unfounded; I’m just a bit of an “icky, no!” girl inside. 😦
Those duck race things are cool! I know what you’re talking about!
Bugs in corn is not unfounded. But I’d let my kid play in it anyway. They aren’t biting bugs.
Kiddie pool plus 20 bags of corn. Ans go!
Never seen one, but that does look fun!
That looks fun! I wish we had one here in the Philippines!
Love it!! CORN PITS! My kids love them too so I made a corn pit in our sandbox this fall! It was a blast!
WOW that is awesome! I had never even heard of a corn pit but if I had a yard, I would have a corn pit!!
This looks like so much fun! Heck, I would totally be in there with my kids lol!
