Farm Tourist Spot
Connors farm was established in 1904. The Connors family followed generations of farmers who had been farming the land for over 300 years. Connors Farm began as a "truck farm" meaning that all of the crops grown at the time were trucked into Boston to be sold wholesale. During this time the main crops grown were root crops such as, parsnips and carrots. In the mid 1950's sweet corn became the major wholesale crop. Unfortunately, wholesale prices for corn began to fall and the farm was unable to make a profit selling corn this way.

  • Went with my boyfriend and some of our friends, had a great time! Definitely not your typical haunted attraction. Walking through the woods and corn field took about a half hour, worth the money!  more »

  • I like fresh vegetables and fruits with the assortment of these items. The people that work at this place is very cordial.
  • A really good option for apple picking and a weekend of family autumn fun. Be sure to grab an apple cider doughnut to munch on before you go picking. Nice variety of apples, wish the variety were better indicated. Also has a family fun area that's enjoyable.
  • The Hysteria Haunted Farm groupon brought my friends and I here! We figured we could check out the farm during the day time as well! I had a horrible flash back on our way here when we were on Valley Rd. again the one lane road to the Topsfield fair (now that place I have no nice words to spare, see that review if you're curious). Thankfully it only took about 15 minutes to make our way to the large parking area. It can get muddy when it's raining. We waited for another 5 minutes in the line to buy our tickets and they had a line for cash, which was faster than looping all the way around the store registers if you pay with card. True Rating = 3.5 from the excessive lines and waiting, they could really be better managed. CONNORS FARM The $14 entrance fee per person is somewhat steep especially as an adult. Many of the activities are geared towards kids such as the pillow bounce, peddle karts etc... We watched the pig races, rode the grain train, rode mechanical bull, rats racing barrels, pumpkin bingo and of course the premiere Corn Maze. It's very cool that they change the theme of the corn maze each year. This year it was Charlie Brown & The Great Pumpkin. I definitely recommend following the question sheet guides or using the text options (however signal is limited). We might have passed a few of the actual phases but we made it through all the way within 40 minutes. I was pleasantly surprised by the Smokehouse food even though by the time we visited around 5pm they were running out of food. My SO ordered the half rack of ribs for $18 and it seems like they might have given him a full rack (or a very generous size) with potato salad and corn on the cob. We shared his plate. HYSTERIA HAUNTED FARM I was surprised to learn that the Hysteria is run by a different company than Connor's. They allowed us to redeem our tickets from Groupon around 6PM but they didn't officially open their doors until around 7:15PM. We should have started lining up right away, but by the time we tried to find the location there was already a huge line forming. We got the tickets & VIP bracelets from Groupon, but to be honest they did not really have a distinction between the lines for us to take advantage. We accidentally asserted ourselves to the front near the corn fields and they just let our group through! Aside from the attraction starting late around 7:30, my friends and I were very impressed with the set up of the Haunted Farm. I won't give too much away but they had tons of spooky props, misty of fog, 70+ actors and a very extensive trail to get through the farm! They even were able to repurpose a school bus. This was infinitely better than the spook walks that we went to at Six Flags. The actors were much more interactive than I expected and they did a great job of scaring everyone in the group not just those in the front or the back. They even followed you around for several paces beyond their mark. We finished the haunted farm trail in about 45 minutes and I would definitely recommend it. Not sure if I would have wanted to wait in the rain though since once we finished we felt the drops of precipitation increasing.
  • Fresh from the ground. Good food
  • Absolutely wonderful. The corn maze is great and has 2 overlooks in it. Great for kids and adults. Apple picking for $10 for a half peck. Petting zoo was small but fun, bring quarters to feed the animals treats.
