The tradition of Korny Korners

As many of those who live in Sarnia or anywhere close know, Korny Korners is a tradition for Halloween time. 

Little do people know that Korny Korners, which has been around for a decade, is on a farm that has been family owned for more than 125 years.

Being kind enough to stop his busy work and chat, Caleb Thurston, who is is the fourth generation to be running the farm, told me all the bits and pieces of this enjoyable place.

Caleb and his dad run the farm most of the time alone but during the summer and weekends students come up to help out as well.

Korny Korners is not just a place for hay rides and corn mazes. Caleb hopes that it will begin to expand in the produce business.

At the moment they are selling over 10 varieties of fruits and vegetables but with the addition of a new building, they will be reaching out into further business expansion.

As excited as Caleb was about the expansion, he was even more enthusiastic when explaining all the activities around Korny Korners.

The biggest attraction is Pumpkin Fest. Each weekend Korny Korners holds a very fun-filled Pumpkin Fest. Pumpkin Fest holds a lot of activities.

Some are unique to the weekend and some are always around to enjoy. Mostly family members and kids come and each person gets to take home a pumpkin, the cost of which is simply included in the admission price.

There are many hay rides and a themed corn maze, which this year is designed to celebrate the Queen's diamond jubilee. 

There are other activities like pig races, a petting farm, pumpkin slingshot, a new cedar maze, and an earth friendly go-kart track. The hours go from 10am-5:30pm Monday to Friday, 9am-5:30pm on Saturdays, and closed on Sunday so don't waste time sitting around home and go out and enjoy the rustic simplicity Korny Korners has to offer.
