Sometimes you just want to get out into some wide-open spaces and experience something different, learn something new, do something you don’t typically do on vacation. With the farm and historic communities of Elkton and Hastings in our backyard, you don’t have to go far to really get out there. Here are a few of our favorite agritourism spots you’ll want to take the whole family.
Sykes Family Farms, located in Elkton, is quite famous for “The Maze”. We’re talking a 9-acre maze full of twists and turns that’ll keep the kids entertained for hours. The Maze is open in for the month of October. There’s also a "you pick" sunflower field, cow milking, farm animals to pet, hayrides, live music most nights and more activities that make for the best “agritainment.”
