Photography2022-12-01T07:30:05-08:00

We are glad you thought of using Maris Farms and its amazing scenery as a backdrop to your clients’ photos. We’ve developed several options to help you and your clients capture the seasonal beauty of the farm in your photographs.

Semi-private rental, great for mini-sessions: On select dates depending on the season, photographers can to arrange to rent the farm for photo shoots, when we are closed to the public. This option was created with the intention to create an environment that will allow for better quality photos as well as a better experience for photographers and their clients. This is a semi-private rental, as there will be other photographers allowed to also rent the farm for the same purpose. Please check event ticket page for availability. Since the farm will be closed, no activities or merchandise will be available.

Non-private photo shoots: If photographer would like to conduct photo shoots on days when the farm is open to the public, both photographers and their clients alike are required to pay farm admission applicable to time of visit (photographers may benefit by purchasing a season pass if they foresee using the farm multiple times during regular hours). It probably goes without saying, but we want to make sure there is an understanding that equipment, staging or photography cannot interfere with the enjoyment or access to the facility by other customers.

Drones: No drone use at the farm without express permission from a Maris Farms representative

Facilities Disclaimer2022-12-01T07:22:20-08:00

As a real working farm, Maris Farms is operated around a rustic dairy farm setting and natural environments. If you travel to the corn maze or pumpkin patch you will encounter uneven terrain, rocks, mud, and corn leaves. Please plan accordingly.

Please obey both common sense and established rules of each venue when visiting. We welcome any and all input to help us improve our facility.

Parking2022-12-01T07:32:14-08:00

We offer free parking. There are small windows on busy weekends when the main parking lot is full so we will open up another lot across the street. If you see cars parked on the road, it does not necessarily mean the parking lot is full when you arrive. Please try to park in our parking lot before choosing to park on road.

Plenty to Eat and Drink2022-12-01T07:34:29-08:00

In October you will find a full assortment of restaurants to satisfy (burgers, hot dogs, pizza and BBQ) plus Kettle and Roasted Corn, ice cream, farm-made fudge and other sweets, and espresso.

What to Bring2022-12-01T07:32:09-08:00

What you bring will depend on what you want to do and what the weather is like.

On a rainy day, be sure and bring your umbrella and boots, as well as a rain slicker and possibly some towels to wipe off mud and dry off before getting back in your vehicle.

Bring flashlights ONLY for the night corn maze.

What NOT to Bring2022-12-01T07:32:54-08:00

Keep the farm family friendly…please leave your drones, photo props, weapons, children’s potties, and offensive clothing at home.

Beat the Crowds2022-12-01T07:25:27-08:00

The first 2 weekends of October are the least busy weekends at Maris Farms. We do limit capacity to assure the best visit possible, which usually impacts the 3rd and 4th weekend of October. The Haunted Woods frequently sells out most weekends. Please secure your tickets online before making the drive out.

What to Wear2022-12-01T07:32:05-08:00

Its outdoors, so please dress accordingly. The weather can be unpredictable — sunny and 70’s one weekend, sideways rain the next. You want to make sure and dress for the occasion.

Nighttime activities will bring out the chill, so keep that in mind. Even if its dry when you visit, if we’ve had persistent rains in the week leading up to your visit, you will most likely be navigating around puddles and some mud. Your best Tennis Shoes, dress shoes and high heels are a bad idea on the farm!

Our suggestions: footwear that can handle mud, gravel and uneven terrain -recommended rubber boots – and a warm jacket and/or rain jacket for the unpredictable sun-to-rain, rain-to-sun, sun-back-to-rain two hour visit you’ll have.
