We are a working vegetable farm with about 300 acres in cultivation. At Black Island Farms, we grow carrots, onions, cabbage, corn, pumpkins, squash, and gourds. Please come and visit us at our farm stand or bring your family to the farm this fall—and our family will be here to welcome you!
Come hungry and enjoy farm-fresh goodies from our market. Visit our Corn Maze, Farm Hayride, and Nightmare Acres, or the Haunted Barn—if you dare! You’ll also love our Animal Alley, Bonfires, Cow Train, Grain Shoot Slide, Straw Mountain, Pig Races, Corn Box, Bounce House, Pumpkin Patch, and much more.
Black Island Farms is a great place to visit with a group of any kind and size. Birthday parties, scout troops, sports teams, church groups, and many more visit us each year. We do our best to make your visit to the farm an enjoyable one. Teachers: book your field trip now because fun and learning go together when your students visit Black Island Farms
We love Black Island Farms! We have been coming here for years. I have seen others complain about the prices, but you get what you pay for. They are really quite cheap compared to other mazes. There is so much fun to be had, so much to do. They have 3 different mazes, a hay ride to the pumpkin patch where you get to pick your own pumpkin (included in price) as well as slides and swings, turkey and pig races. I highly recommend bringing your family out here!!!!
The best part about it is that it’s open Sundays (literally the only patch that is!). But even with it being the only one that’s open, it wasn’t overcrowded at 2PM (in fact, the tractor ride and two smaller slides didn’t even have lines). There’s parking on both the West and East sides of the street, but the maze and everything are on the West side. When you first walk into the gates, there are ticketing booths to the South and the Hayride line to the West. Buy your tickets first before going to the Hayride. Once past the ticketing booths, there is a small “farmer’s market” with several types of squash. Then comes The Courtyard, a big open field surrounded by pens of animals (calves, turkeys, pigs, goats, chickens/roosters, geese), a Turkey Race track, Piglet Race track, tire swings, three sizes of slides (slick plastic sheets overlaying haystacks or the largest is a big tube 2.5 stories up), a barrel tractor ride (adults under 250lbs can ride, too!), a corn kernel “sandbox,” and one little food truck. There’s live music by the food truck, which was kind of unfortunate placement in that ordering was made more difficult by the loud music. The food is a bit overpriced and my chicken tenders were still cold in the middle, but it was palatable. The Corn Maze is fun, though by this last weekend there were well-worn “shortcuts” from people just walking between the stalks, so it wasn’t as challenging. Overall, we had fun and my toddler nephews loved it, so we have made note to go back again next year! Maybe we’ll try to the Hayride because it looked fun (and it’s not a bad deal since it comes with a pumpkin that you pick out on the ride).
I was surprised at how much fun this place was to spend our Halloween. There was hardly anyone here. We played endlessly on the slides, loved the little train (we went twice), and had so much fun we didn’t even get time to go in the corn Maze. The hamburgers were DELICIOUS which I wasn’t expecting. We hung around the bonfire after dark and were very happy we spent our day at BIF.
