- The State’s Largest Corn Maze
McLeod Farm’s theme for the 2018 corn maze is: Fire and Rescue. This year we have 2 mazes totaling over 20 acres in size – the largest in the state of SC. This attraction is for the kids as well as the adults. Answer fire and rescue trivia related questions to avoid getting lost in the maze. Open every weekend until Nov. 3rd and every weekday from 4PM until 5:30PM. Here is a drone shot we took from above the maze!
2. 30-plus acre U-Pick Pumpkin Patch
Crisp fall temperatures and the excitement of returning to school after summer break provides the ideal atmosphere for our Pumpkin Patch school field trips. Kids can get a first hand look at farming and learn where their food actually comes from. Weekday mornings are devoted to school field trips, but the pumpkin patch is open to the public every Friday & Saturday 9 AM-6PM, Sunday 1-6 PM until Nov. 3rd. Folks can also go to the patch every weekday from 4-5:30 PM. Just in time for Halloween – come out and pick your own pumpkins or buy one right off the shelf.
3. Take a trip back in time at the McLeod Farms Museum
Take a stroll down memory lane at the Macs Pride Farm Museum where visiting the past is fun! The museum is home to over 20 antique cars, including a 1920 McLaughlin, 1930 Lincoln, Model T’s and Model A’s.
Always wonder how the farmers plowed the fields before we had motorized equipment? More than a dozen tractors from yesteryear are on display along with other memorabilia that includes farm implements, tools, and many other items of interest.
Be sure to check out our pristine collection of antique farm machinery.
Macs Pride Antique Farm Museum has it all – from fabulous antique autos to butter churns and phonograph players! One section of the museum is dedicated to the ladies of the farm and includes antique sewing machines, a wood cook stove, a wringer washing machine, and other replicas. There is so much to see you might want to plan another trip to see the rest at the Mac’s Pride Antique Museum.
