We have pumpkins for eating — and pumpkins for carving — and pumpkins for painting — and pumpkins just to look at! Visit the Pumpkin Patch and wander around until you have found the perfect pumpkins to take home. Kids -- paint your pumpkins here at the farm! We have a special place for pumpkin painting! It's a Cotton Pickin' Good Time From bolls to blue jeans! Find out what we mean by saying that "we're in high cotton"! We plant our cotton in early summer and it's ready for picking about mid-October. You are invited to try your hand at it, if you'd like! The MAiZE at Southern Belle Farm is seven acres of fun! It's where getting lost can be so much fun! Getting lost in a corn maze can be fun for the whole family! This Georgia farm has a seven acre cornfield with a unique image stamped right into it, with winding paths, dead ends and wrong turns all for you to navigate! Believe it or not, it's the kids who usually have the best sense of direction! The maze is the perfect activity for kids and kids-at-heart! Bring the whole family. Come with your church group or make the corn maze a corporate outing, or scouting event. Or just come out and enjoy the maze with all of the other folks who are getting lost and enjoying the countryside and harvest season on the farm! After sundown, you'll want a flashlight to make your way through the rustling stalks of corn. And the closer it gets to Halloween,the more likely you are to encounter a few ghosts or spooks lurking here and there.
