Frequently Asked Questions

When will the Corn Maze open?  

After much thought and consideration, we've decided to take a break at Kelley Farms for the Fall 2015 season. We will miss your smiling faces! We hope to see you down the road though -- 2016 isn't that far away. For the full note from our family, visit the homepage. 

What is "Canines in the Corn Maze"? 
You've been telling us how much you'd love to bring your doggies out to Kelley Farms. For years, this has been the most common request. For the first time ever, we're going to host "Canines in the Corn Maze" on Saturday, November 1st, from 10am - 3pm. You'll be able to bring your canine companions with you as you navigate 10 acres of amazing fun. Canine admissions will be a minimum donation of $3 each, benefitting the Lexington Humane Society. (You're welcome to donate more if you'd like -- they do great work in helping to save homeless animals across the Bluegrass.) Human admissions will be the same as they normally are on Saturday at this time. All dogs must be well behaved, and must remain on a leash at all times. They'll be able to enjoy the corn maze and most common areas. The hay ride will not be available to canines, in the interest of their safety. As always, operation of the farm is weather-dependent. Right now, the forecast looks pretty good for Saturday, November 1st. Let's hope it stays that way! Have additional quesitons? Feel free to contact us at 

How big is the maze?
Our maze covers more than 10 acres of land. The Giant Corn Maze actually hosts 2 mazes -- so you'll have double the fun as you challenge yourself through the unexpected twists and turns.

How long does it take to get through the maze?
It all depends on the number of wrong turns you take. The average person will finish their maze experience in about an hour. Some take a lot longer; others finish more quickly. If you have good map reading skills, you should be able to find your way out - eventually!

Will I get lost?
We hope so! That’s part of the fun! While everyone does get lost to different degrees, we have designed the maze to be an interactive activity that makes a trip inside the maze more than just a walk through some corn.

How do you make the maze?
Our exact process is a secret, but we can tell you we do it the old fashioned way and it takes a lot of practice. We do not use a GPS system! Our corn is planted months in advance, and carefully cut out in a special design. It takes some serious math skills and a lot of patience.

What happens to the corn after the Giant Corn Maze closes?
After the season is over, we harvest the corn and feed it to cattle.

Are there refunds if guests leave due to rain?
No, but you can check with the ticket booth before you leave Kelley Farms to see if “rain tickets” are being offered, allowing you to return on a future date.

Can I drop my children off and pick them up in a few hours?
No. Kelley Farms requires that all children be accompanied by an adult. Children should never be left unattended.

Can groups bring their own food and drink?
Yes. Though we have some really yummy choices at Kelley Farms, you are welcome to bring your own. We have a large grassy area and tables that are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Alcoholic beverages are never permitted on the farm.

How can I pay?
Kelley Farms accepts cash and credit, including Visa, Mastercard and Discover.

Can I bring my pet?
Pets are not permitted, with the exception of service dogs.

Is smoking permitted?
No, smoking is not permitted on Kelley Farms property. 

Where can I learn about weather closings?
Inclement weather can force us to close at any time. We will make every effort to inform you of these cloings on our homepage at as well as our facebook page: 

What should I wear?
We recommend being prepared for cool weather. Remember that you will be in a farm atmosphere and should dress appropriately for the best experience. Athletic shoes are recommended.

Do you have restrooms?
There are portable restrooms on site, along with hand sanitizing stations.

Do you have handicap access?
The Giant Corn Maze at Kelley Farms is on unpaved farmland and does not have handicap access. While wheel chairs, strollers and wagons are always welcome, we urge you to use caution when considering whether to take them inside the maze. Like any farm, the paths can be bumpy.
