Shuckles Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch is located in Gallatin, TN. Encompassing over 30 acres, this large farm has fall fun for the entire family. Here's some information from our trip to help you plan your own.
We had no trouble locating the farm using our GPS. There are signs on the roads leading to Shuckles to let you know that you are headed the right way. The parking area is plenty big but you may have to drive around a bit to find a spot depending on how busy the farm is that day. Once you are parked head toward the admission area.
Shuckles Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch has one admission price that gives you access to over 28 activities. Some items are extra though and these must be paid for with “Shuckle Bucks”. A list of activities and prices for Shuckle Bucks can be found at this link. Take a look before you go.
Once you have paid your admission, you step right into the fun! As you enter there are two or three different spots perfect for some great fall photos. Get this out of the way early and then you can let the kids run around and get as dirty as they want.
To the left you will find the pumpkin patch. There are all different sizes and varieties of pumpkins available for purchase. Your child (or you!) can also decorate your pumpkins. Remember, you must have Shuckle Bucks to buy a pumpkin but the decorating materials are included with regular admission.
As you continue your trip, you will find pumpkin bowling, a kid's zip line and a large play area. The entire activity area is fairly well enclosed so, while I wouldn't let my little one run wild, you can probably feel safe to give them a bit of freedom.
On this side of the farm, you will also find the pony rides, kid's zip line and a small animal petting area.
There are also two large picnic areas if you need a spot to relax for a while. Concessions are available for purchase. Remember this is a farm so our old friend the porta potty is the only bathroom option. If it helps at all, they were really clean.
Toward the back of the activity area, there is a super slide, rubber duck races and some other kid friendly playground equipment.
On the far left side of the farm is the corn maze. This maze was very family friendly. Nothing scary or overly challenging. Even when we got lost a time or two, it was easy to turn around and find our way. Plus the maze is very close to the activity area so you never feel ‘lost'.
Next to the corn maze is the corn cannon. This was a very popular attraction. Basically you purchase corn with Shuckle Bucks. Then when it's your turn, an employee will help you load the corn into the cannon. Then it's time to fire away. There are several ‘targets' to shoot at.
Shuckles Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch also offers a Hay Ride. This is one of the most popular parts of the farm. If you have to wait, pass the time by playing some corn hole games or other activities very close.
