About Our Maze
Welcome to our corn maze! Every year our corn maze theme encompasses something that you would see in your own back yard, be it animal, plant, reptile, amphibian, or avian. As you enter our maze you become surrounded by 8-9 ft stalks of corn, but do not fear! As you progress through your journey you will find signs to help guide your path. Each sign contains a trivia question about the corn maze theme. Answer the question correctly and you will be directed to take the correct or shorter path. Answer the question incorrectly and you will be sent the longer way or the wrong way entirely. Our trivia is geared toward a wide range of ages from the young to the young at heart. Those that welcome more of a challenge are free to enter the corn maze through the exit where the trivia will provide no help at all.
Our crops are rotated around the farm for the health of the soil, so our corn maze is a different experience every year. Depending on the weather, the corn maze has been planted by our Belgian Draft Horses and it is almost always harvested by them. Our corn is not of the human eating variety, instead it is a feed corn used for the nourishment of our sheep flock and our horses. For that reason, it is imperative that each ear remains on the stalk in order for us to harvest it. We ask that those that visit our maze respect our crop by not picking the ears on your way through, and by not cutting through the stalks of corn, which can knock the ears of corn to the ground.
Once you complete your journey you will be welcomed back at the barn farm stand to celebrate your success. Peruse the farm's own pumpkins, fall decoratives, winter squashes, meats, eggs, and cooking oil, as well as other wonderful locally sourced products including honey and maple syrup. We look forward to sharing our farm with you this fall!

School Field Trips
Coppal House Farm is a real working farm where students will see all aspects of farm life, crops, and animals. Our farm and corn maze are set up in a manner that encourages team building, cooperative learning, and a rewarding educational experience. As an eighth-grade educator for 27 years, Carol has helped turn this working farm into a place where there are learning opportunities for all age groups. Starting with the corn maze, there are mailboxes that contain trivia questions about this year’s theme. Our themes have encompassed the birds of the air, to the mammals & amphibians that roam our fields and woods, to plant life that you can find all over NH. Each year, a series of questions are placed into the mailboxes scattered throughout the maze to help you navigate the winding paths. We hope that some of the answers are ones that you know, while others make you think “well, I never knew that”.
In the field adjacent to the corn maze, you are welcome to plan other activities or games that follow your school curriculum. We have had school groups bring giant parachutes, plan a scavenger hunt, and have story time.
If you would like to do activities more closely related to the farm, we give presentations to groups in our barn and farm stand about the horses, sheep, & chickens; put together dried corn cobs so the students can try shelling corn as they would have had to do before mechanized equipment; or put together pumpkins so the students can paint on them (we suggest bringing permanent markers rather than paint – there is an additional cost for the pumpkins). If any of these activities interest you, please discuss them with our farm staff when you make your field trip reservation. Some activities may be unavailable depending on the season.
We provide a large picnic area outside of the corn maze with many picnic tables if you would like to bring a snack, or even stay for lunch. While we don’t have lunch items available here, we do have some snacks and treats available for purchase in our farm stand if you choose to allow the kids to buy items.

Closed Tuesday & Wednesday
The corn maze is not open to the general public until Noon. Field trips can last a couple of hours or you can spend the entire day.

How to make a Reservation

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to wear a mask while at the farm?
Wearing a mask at the farm is up to you and your comfort level. We do ask that if you have been exposed to Covid that you wear a mask when interacting with employees or other customers.
Are your sunflowers still in bloom?
Some of them! This year we planted part of our variety garden to bloom during the first three weeks of September for you to enjoy when visiting the corn maze. Our large oilseed sunflowers bloom from the end of July until the beginning of August and are no longer in bloom. Once they are passed bloom, the fields are closed for visiting.
Can I bring my well-behaved pet to the farm? How about if they're on a leash or if I carry them?
Sorry, but no pets are allowed on the farm.
Can I bring my emotional support animal to the farm?
Service animals are defined as working animals trained to perform tasks for the benefit of individuals with physical or mental disabilities- such as guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, alerting and projecting people prone to seizures , or other tasks directly related to a disability and are welcome at Coppal House Farm.
Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Coppal House Farm requires guests to leave pets at home to provide a safer and more positive experience for all attendees, including those pets.
Is your farm and the corn maze handicap accessible?
Yes, for the most part it is. Our paths in the corn maze are certainly wide enough to allow wheelchairs through, but you would need assistance in pushing it. Plan accordingly, please remember that this is an outside event with uneven terrain. Please call ahead prior to your visit to discuss your needs.
About how long does it take to go through the maze?
It take approximately 35-45 minutes to go through. Sometimes a little bit longer, especially if you get lost!
Is there a charge to go through the corn maze?
Yes. Rates may change so please check our Corn Maze page for up to date admission info.
Do you accept credit cards or checks?
Yes we do! We accept all major credit cards, Applepay and local checks. Checks must include a working phone number.
My kids would like to go through the corn maze with their friends. Do I have to go in too, or can I just sit in the picnic area?
You must purchase admission for yourself and accompany your children and friends if they are under the age of 16 years old.
Is the corn maze open even if it is raining? Can I bring an umbrella?
Yes, the corn maze is open rain or shine. You are welcome to bring an umbrella into the maze! Please wear appropriate footwear & clothing. We only close the maze if the weather is not safe. Closures due to safety will be posted on this website and our Facebook page.
Can I bring my own drinks and snacks?
Yes you can! For our corn maze customers, we have a lovely picnic area in a shaded area near the maze. Picnic tables are on a first come, first serve basis. There are plenty of benches and picnic tables to sit at. We also offer a variety of drinks and snacks for purchase at our farm stand.
We're coming from about an hour or so away and would like to spend the day in the area, are there other things to do close by?
Yes, there is plenty to do! We would be happy to give you suggestions on where to eat and other places to visit while you're in the area. Just ask us when you come to the farm!
My company would like to have an employee event at Coppal House Farm, how large of a group can you accommodate?
We can accommodate small or large groups without a problem. You can schedule a private event either during public hours or after hours. We have many schools, companies and other groups come to the farm and maze. Please call us at 603-659-3572 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Will I really get lost in the corn maze?
Yes, but in a very fun way! There are educational questions to help you navigate through the corn maze. If you need additional assistance, we have "corn cops" in the maze to point you in the right direction.
What else is there to do at the farm besides the corn maze?
You can also visit our beautiful farm stand! We grow the very best pumpkins, squash, gourds, straw, cornstalks, fall decorative corn & more! We feature products from our own farm and local farms, as well as products from NH Made members. In the winter months, we offer public and private horse-drawn Wagon and Sleigh rides. In late July/early August we hold our Sunflower Festival.
Do you do any special events during the year?
Yes we do! We offer night time corn mazes a few times every fall, public sleigh ride events in the winter, special events during our Sunflower Festival, and we co-host a few events throughout the year with Flag Hill Distillery & Winery. See our Sleigh Ride page for winter events, and our Sunflower Festival page for summer events. Check our website and our Facebook page often for other news and event info!
What happens to the Corn Maze at the end of the season?
The corn is harvested and stored in the wire corn crib beside the main barn, then used as winter feed for the livestock.
Do we have to pay for parking?
No, parking is always free on the farm.
