That’s the year that Snohomish farmer Mark Craven bought his grandfather’s decades-old dairy farm and converted it into an autumn wonderland of corn mazes and pumpkin patches. He’s been doing the fall festivities ever since – attracting annual visitors and inviting them to make family traditions into the second and third generations.
Mark Craven still cuts corn mazes the way he always has – from a grid that’s in his mind. He doesn’t use a GPS.
The Craven Farm is one hundred percent family-friendly – no zombies, ghouls, or bumps in the night here. Instead, you can expect a petting zoo, “fair food” concessions (kettle corn and corn dogs, anyone?), and photo ops with scarecrows.
This year Craven Farms has an advantage over other venues. It has plenty of acreage and good circulation of air. Social distancing will be relatively easy for folks coming out to celebrate fall fun at the base of Lord Hill in the Snohomish River Valley. Masks are, of course, required.
Grab your camera and expect to find the best pumpkins! You won't be disappointed.
