FAQ

P-6 Farms; Montgomery, Texas

When is the best time to visit?

The last 3 weekends in OCTOBER are traditionally our busiest.  During the last 3 weekends in October you will experience longer lines all throughout our farm.  If crowds are not your cup of tea, then we recommend you visiting our maze earlier in the season or during the month of November.  Please plan your visit accordingly!

 

How many acres is P-6 farms?

P-6 Farms is large enough to run our cattle and hay operation along with our seasonal produce and Fall Festival and Corn Maze.

 

What happens if we cut through the maze and/or don’t follow the other listed rules?

Cutting through our maze is the number one Cardinal Rule.  We don’t allow it and you will escorted off the farm.  By cutting through the maze, it destroys the corn and ruins the path ways for other maze goers and our numerous school field trips.

 

Can we bring our dog or other family pet?

No, as much as we love dogs, they are NOT allowed on the farm.

 

Can I leave my child unattended at the farm?

Children under 12 MUST have a parent chaperon on the farm grounds AND must be accompanied by an adult in the maze,  ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS.

 

How do you make the maze?

It takes lots of practice.  Our particular process of making the maze is a trade secret, but we can tell you that we plant the whole field in the summer and then cut out the design when the corn plants are still fairly short.  The design is created on a computer and then transferred into the corn field.

 

Are there refunds if guests heave due to rain?

No, however you can check with the ticket booth before you leave P-6 Farms to see if they will give you a rain check, allowing you to return on a future date during the current maze season.

 

Can I bring my own food/drinks?

Unfortunately, you cannot.  Our concession stands sell lots of yummy food onsite.  We have a large grassy area and picnic tables that are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

 

What age is P-6 Farms most appropriate for? 

One great thing about P-6 Farms is that we offer something that everyone, of all ages, can enjoy.  From babies, up to grandmas and grandpas, our goal is to make sure everyone in your group leaves with memories to cherish.

 

Do adults have to pay to come in just to accompany their children during the Fall Festival?

Yes, anyone 3 years and older is required to pay an admission.  Even if you accompanying your child to their friend’s birthday party.

 

For my child who is 2 and under, do I have to pay for him/her to participate in farm activities?

Yes… For the farm activities that are appropriate for your child, tickets are required.  If parents and/or siblings want to jump, too, tickets will be required, as well.

 

How big is the maze?

The two mazes (the small & large maze) are cut into 8 total acres of corn.

 

How long does it take to get through the maze?

This answer all depends on how many wrong turns you take.  The average person will finish the entire maze within one hour.  The small maze is roughly 2 acres and should only take about 15 minutes to navigate.  Some people have taken longer and some have finished quicker.  Just remember, no running.  For those who might be concerned with the length of time it takes you to finish, are encouraged to flag down the “corn cop” in the tower.  He will guide our other “corn cops” your way for a quick exit of the maze.

 

Will I get lost?

Well… we certainly hope so!  It’s designed to be that way.  While everyone does get lost to different degrees, we have designed the maze to be an interactive activity that makes a trip inside the maze more than just a walk through the park.

 

Do you provide a map?

We sure do…  You can also scan the QR Code on the map sign and can use your mobile device as a guide.

 

Do you offer any games in the maze?

Yes, we do.  In the small maze, we have incorporated the book Spookley, The Square Pumpkin.  Follow the correct path to read life sized pages of the book that brings awareness to bullying.  October is National Bullying Prevention Month and Spookley is the Official Spokes-Pumpkin!  The large maze has a more interactive game.  It’s called FSI (Farm Scene Investigation), and participating maze goers are on the path to finding Farmer Joe, who is missing.

 

Can I eat the corn?

You could, but it would not taste very good.  The variety that we grow is field corn for cattle, which we harvest at the end of each season.

 

Is the farm open during the week of Thanksgiving?

No, we (along with our valuable employees) enjoy spending our time with family as we are reminded of just how thankful we are.  Our last day open will be Saturday, November 22, 2014.

 

Can we go through the maze more than once?

Absolutely!  We want you to explore different paths.  You never know, you might even become an expert!
