Anderson Farms

If you are planning to visit a corn maze this fall, why not go to Colorado's Oldest Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch?

The Corn Mazes at Anderson’s Farm are huge!  Just take a look at the maze the Anderson family created in 2009.  You could get lost in there!

At the Anderson Farm, you can mine for gemstones and fossils. Try to collect them all!  Each bag of rough is guaranteed to have a find.  Gemstone Panning is a fun and exiting activity for all ages.  Participants may find up to 11 ounces of gemstones and fossils in a single bag.  This is a great afternoon family activity.
