ABOUT "Tweite's Pumpkin Patch"
Tweite’s Family Farm is celebrating 26 years of family fun and entertainment. Plan a trip to this year’s bigger and better adventures with Tweite’s Family Farm. Enjoy our award winning Theme Park, 12-Acre Corn Maze, and Pumpkin Patch! Teacher’s start planning your Fall Educational Field Trips to our Farm. This year we have teamed up with Spookley the Square Pumpkin, a unique pumpkin that delivers a special message of kindness and tolerance.
Tweite’s Family Farm is located in Byron, Minnesota, just a short drive from Rochester.
Our amazingly large 12 acre corn field is an adventure in itself! Be prepared to GET LOST as you venture your way through the corn maze field. Before you enter the maze, you will first see a video where your group will receive a game sheet, a pencil and crayon, and MAIZE-O-VISION secret decoder glasses if you prefer (MAIZE-O-VISION glasses are an additional charge of $1.50). This video will explain how to play several games in the maze, how to navigate your way through the maze, and most importantly, the rules of the maze.
CornMaze7This year’s Maze: THE DARK AGES wait to be explored by knights and ladies. Learn the customs and life in medieval Europe in the Age of Chivalry.
There are several “Maze Masters” inside and around the maze at all times. Whether you need help finding a clue to find your next station, or you are just plain LOST, our Maze Masters are there to help!
While in the maze, you will complete the questions and answers, find the picture rubbings, and decode the secret word! A trip to Tweite’s Corn Maze is more than just a “walk in the stalks.” There so much to do, you may forget you’re LOST! Our corn maze features a new theme every year. So if you’ve mastered the maze one year, come back the next for an all-new maze design!
Our maze has no lights, that’s right, no lights! For a totally different maze experience, visit us at night on September 27th and October 11th, but be sure to bring your flashlight, or they can be purchased or rented!
How long does the maze take to complete?
Good question! Well, it depends on how determined you are to complete all the questions and answers and rubbing stations, to decode the secret word. The average time of completion is approximately 2 hours. If you are going into the maze to see if you can find your way out, it could take anywhere from 20 minutes to next week! This is why we have our very helpful Maze Masters standing by to guide you through if need be.
Is our Maze Haunted?
No, our maze is not haunted. Many families with little ones come out to enjoy a nice fall day or evening at Tweite’s Family Farm, so no scary stuff here!
* All tickets are final, last person to enter the maze 1 ½ hours before posted closing time*
