The Topsfield Fair is a perennial favorite for us. We're not the biggest fans of the midway, although it is always worth a walkthrough and a ride or two. We love fruits and vegetables, and are always on the lookout for the winning 'biggest pumpkin'. Another favorite is checking out the pigs and other farm animals, as well as the interesting variety of guinea pigs and rabbits.

The 2018 Marini Farm Corn Maze is Arabian Nights themed this year! This is not your typical corn maze; it is both educational and interactive.

You will be able to track your progress through the maze by the amount of answers you find on your game sheet. A finished game sheet is a finished maze! Average time to complete the corn maze is 1.5 hours — so put on your sturdy shoes or sneakers and come enjoy the experience! For our youngest adventurers, we also have a 1 acre/20 minute "mini maze".
