UT Adventures: Black Island Farms


Black Island Farms has the largest corn maze in Utah. I went there a few years ago, right after Ryan was born (she was wrapped and snuggled up next to me, all the way through). It was pretty impressive. Other than that, none of us has been there. We were lucky enough to be able to go with a group of homeschooling families and we got a great deal. For 2 adults and 5 kids, we paid $18. For what we got, the money we spent was absolutely worth it! We all piled into several large hay wagons that were pulled by tractors and journeyed through the corn and out into the pumpkin patches.

Once everyone had picked their pumpkins, we headed back to the barns. On a large field, we found all sorts of wonderful activities and things to keep us entertained for a couple of hours….

Climbing and sliding….

Swinging………on a shark.

Feeding Llamas…accidental activity that was discovered when Ryan put her pretty flowers (clover blossoms) up to let the Llama smell them….oops. πŸ™‚

Ducky Races…

Poor Ducky….he was so worn out, he couldn’t even keep his head up. 😦

All 5 of the kids got to go into the Pumpkin Bouncehouse, without any other kids in there. They had so much fun together! What a blessing to have a moment where everyone is laughing and playing together. πŸ™‚

Tunnels to climb through….

Simon preferred to scoot backwards, however. πŸ˜‰

The see saw!

The Corn Box, a fun spin off of the Sand Box.

Ryan loved making corn angels (a strange spin on snow angels)!

Simon was a little bit apprehensive, at first sight. I don’t think that he realized it was dried corn. I can see his apprehension….who wants to play in a big pile of fresh corn? Yuck! Once he saw all of his siblings in there, he hopped in and we had a difficult time getting him out.

It was fun for everyone, I almost got in there myself. Don’t worry, I held my composure and reminded myself that I am an adult. Wait! What was I thinking!?! πŸ™‚

Then there was the Cow Ride…mooooving at just the right speed for the little ones.

What a beautiful variety of locally grown produce, all of which will be perfect for displaying during the upcoming holidays.


Wheat bundles, sunflower heads, gourds, pumpkins, corn husks…..so many fall wonders.

We had soooooo much fun, the kids were very reluctant to leave Black Island Farms. We promised them that we would return at some point. As we left, Mr. C was mumbling something about how fun this would be for a date night. πŸ˜‰

Pura Vida!
Mrs. C
