October is the best time of year for all fall activities. There is pumpkin patches, corn mazes, hay rides and apple picking. Grim’s Orchard and Family Farms has that and so much more.

Grim’s was officially opened in 1989 by owners Dale, Naomi and Josh. In 1997 they opened the first corn maze to the Lehigh Valley region. They had the pick your own pumpkin, straw maze, corn boxes and other activities. Later they added the pick your own apples.

Grim’s corn maze is one of the main activities to do. Every year they change the shape and create a different design. Within the corn maze there are questions you need to answer about the design to make your way to the end. It is a fun activity so do with your friends and family. At night they also do a haunted maze for people looking for a fright.

Apple picking is a popular thing to do at Grim’s. They have 11 different types of apples you can pick. They also have pick your own pumpkins. The best part of Halloween is getting to carve a pumpkin. They have a huge area to grow their pumpkins at and there are a lot of pumpkins to pick from.

Not only does Grim’s offer the normal fall activities like picking a pumpkin and a corn maze, but they also have apple shooting, paintball and a whole play area for kids. The apple shooting and paintball is fun for everyone. They have areas set up to shoot the apples/paintballs at different festive objects. In the play area for kids they have activities like corn hole, ladder golf, a caterpillar slide, pedal karts, sand pit, a hay mountain and so much more.

Don’t wait till it’s too late to enjoy all these fun fall activities!
