They also carry a wide selection of native Iowa wines that can be purchased by the bottle or by the glass with events throughout the growing season. A cafe is onsite with items like pulled pork sandwiches, nacho taters, and pizza.
Admission: $7 per person for unlimited access to the corn maze, a petting zoo with goats, jumbo family games, cornhole toss, and lifesize hamster wheels.
