Hicks Family Farms is a family owned and operated farm in Lonoke County, Arkansas. Currently, the 5th generation of Hicks children are being brought up on our farm. In October of 2015, the family was named as one of Arkansas' Century Farms. Honoring the fact that the farm has been in the Hicks family for 100 years. Since 1913 to be exact! The Hicks family have always had a desire to share our agriculture lifestyle with others. What started as Kevin & Rebekah teaching the children of Lonoke County about the dairy industry in the late 1990’s has evolved to opening our farm to the public every fall for our pumpkin patch and corn maze. Our vision for the corn maze and pumpkin patch started as a way to invite people out to the farm for a day to escape the busyness of life, spend some time in the fresh country air with their family, and learn a thing or two about agriculture.
We've constructed a maze through over 7 acres of corn! We also have a straw bale maze for the youngins' to enjoy on their own. Don't forget to stop by the carousel for the pony rides! There are live farm animals to pet and even a hay ride to enjoy. We've got more going on out here than a chicken has feathers!
If that's not enough to get ya' headed for the country, we've got pumpkins, mums, and straw bales for sale to make your yard as pretty as a fall picture. Speaking of pictures, don't forget to bring your camera to capture tons of pictures of your little ones enjoying the country life! Pumpkins are priced according to size.
FARM YARD RULES
To ensure everyone has a good, safe time while visiting the Farm, we have to have a few rules.
■Do NOT cut through the corn. You must stay on the paths!
■No tobacco. No alcohol. No illegal drugs.
■Do not pick, eat, throw, or otherwise destroy the corn.
■Children under the age of 12 MUST be accompanied by an adult.
■No pets except service animals.
■Kids - YOU are responsible for your parents behavior at all times!
ATTENTION: All guests must be out of the maze by November 1st or be lost in the corn forever!!
Here are a few tips to help you get lost in our corn maze:
■Use a backpack style carrier for your baby instead of a stroller.
■There is a way out and you will find it but TAKE YOUR TIME!
■There are NO shortcuts or quick exits.
■We strongly recommend sturdy, closed toe shoes. Cowboys wear boots for a reason!
