It’s almost time to make your annual fall family pilgrimage to that mecca of agritainment - Poppell Farms, the 10-acre corn maze labyrinth, Linus-approved pumpkin patch & activity-packed farm in Odum about six miles from Jesup.
Poppell Farms grand opening for the 2014 Fall season is 10 AM-5 PM Saturday Oct. 4.
In honor of Paula Deen, the 2014 Poppell Farms corn maze features a likeness to Savannah’s ultimate Southern Mama. Paula Deen & her family will make a personal appearance at Poppell Farms on Oct. 5. You’re invited to visit the farm & meet her. Stay updated about what time she’ll be at the farm by following Poppell Farms on Facebook here.
At Poppell Farms, you can take a covered hayride to visit characters dressed as Charlie Brown, Lucy, and Linus to pick out a pumpkin in the pumpkin patch; ride the cow train; feed animals in the petting farm including a goat walk; try steer roping, Spyder Slyder slide & the all-time kids’ favorite, the popular crop hopper, which is giant jumping air pillow that has kids giggling upon their first bounce. There are also tractor & pony rides.
Special 2014 events each weekend including:
* Oct 4: Grand Opening.
* Oct. 5: Personal Appearance by Paula Deen & her family. You’re invited to visit the farm & meet her.

Poppell’s corn maze is intricate network of twists and turns carved into 10 acres of corn. It opens Oct. 4 2014. Though the correct pathway can be walked in only 15 minutes, most wandering maze-goers will require about one hour to travel through more than three miles of twists, turns and decision points.
PICNIC AREAS are available for use, so bring your own food or visit Poppell Farms’ CALF-A CONCESSION STAND for hamburgers, hot dogs, sausage dogs, chicken sandwiches & fries. Candy, popcorn & treats available.
Poppell Farms is open on Sundays, too, for those whose Saturdays are packed with kids’ sporting events.
