Harvest Holler Corn Maze is a family-owned real working farm in Polk City near Lakeland. They are a renowned family farm taking families on a hayride with exciting activities, animals, and the fantastic Corn Maze. Since 2013, Harvest Hollers' aim has always been to provide the ultimate fun farm experience. I enjoyed this event with my elderly aunt and uncle, baby grandson, and the rest of the family. Our group consisted of various ages, with everyone having a great time taking in the breathtaking adventures of the simple things in life. Harvest Holler offers a day of fun, but heads up, the exceptionally high Florida fall temperatures will take a toll on you.

Corn maze

Kids can enjoy the fall holidays without any spooky stuff; the corn maze is open daily. Harvest Holler has different attractions for the whole family to enjoy. One of the most popular is the labyrinth that you maneuver through to the finish line with clues along the way.

Big Frank-n-slide

The retired Massey Ferguson 850 Combine is the Big Frank -n-Slide that you get to see first once you get to Harvest Holler. It has a combination of playground slides, swings, potato race sacks that speed you down and out of the back of the Frank-n-Slide.

Cow trail barrel ride

You can experience a ride on their cow train connected to barrel carts pulled by a tractor driver to give you a trip around Harvest Holler in a fun way. Be sure to hold on tight because there's no going back as soon as the train starts moving!

Adventure hayride

Hop on to a wagon, sleigh, or open truck, whichever you want, and get to see cows and horses as you enjoy your ride. First, the journey starts at the farm and then out to the pastures to view the livestock. This adventure gives you an experience of life on a Florida farm.

Corn tubs

Corn tubs are for the little ones, but you can join them if you like. You get to jump in and get some fun burying yourselves with corn.

Pumpkin patch

There are pumpkins of all sizes. Here is where you can have another photo opportunity.

Minnow and tadpole fishing tub

You can try your luck fishing at the farm with the Minnow and Tadpole fishing tube. You can even work the ole' hand watering pump.

Put-put miniature golfing

Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the miniature golf course around the farm. Set your ball and putter at the beginning and use the old church steeple as your destination. It is not easy as it seems, so take your best shot.

Tire swings and hay mountains

The ol' tire swing is the place to relax after all the breathtaking experiences around the farm. The tire swing hangs from a giant oak hammock tree located in a serene atmosphere. The hay mountains are a perfect location to test your speeds, with a surprise awaiting you at the peak!

Holler corn hole

A game with four holes and four simultaneous stages is one that you should participate in before leaving the farm. The addictive game surprises most families as the least expected winner usually takes the prize.
