They have lots of fun things to do including a hay ride, a kid’s cow train, a kids hay maze and a hay jump and more!  The hay ride takes you on a tour of the largest family owned certified organic farm in Maryland.

 Hayrides Corn Maze near Baltimore Anne Arundel County

The biggest draw in the Fall for  Maryland Sunrise Farm is the HUGE corn maze (Does that make it a Maize Maze?)   You can wander around in the maze for 20 minutes or hours.  There are so many twists and turns you can get really turned around!  They even have flags you can carry and raise if you get too lost.

There are “passport stations” throughout the maze that line up with questionnaire’s that are provided when you pay.  The answers tell you which way to go, get ‘em wrong and you may get lost! 


There are also totem stations throughout where you can do crayon rubbings.  Head to the totem board to find out what they mean.

Bridget, it looks like a great time was had by all.  When Liam was younger we used to go on a hay ride up here with the Cub Scouts, and then a bonfire afterwards.  This looks way more fun!!

Great photos of Sydney especially the sheepish one. What a lucky little girl to have you for her mom. So many fun things to do with a fun little girl. Thanks for sharing.
