Featured | McKee's Fall Harvest and Pumpkin Festival
As the days become shorter and night comes quicker and temperatures get cooler, the folks at McKee’s Cedar Creek Farm are anxiously awaiting to open their farm to visitors.
Each year, the McKee’s (David & Vickie) invite visitors from all over to run through their cornfield mazes, pick out pumpkins, take a hayride, ride the barrel train, have a picnic, and just enjoy good ole wholesome family fun. It’s been a tradition at the farm since 2001.
You may be aMAZEd to know that the cornfield maze at Cedar Creek Farm is one of the largest in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area with 12 acres of adventure and a smaller interactive maze for younger children or the young at heart!
A Family Affair
Each year, the field is planted in traditional corn rows by David. As the corn begins to grow, Vickie draws the design and with assistance, hundreds of numbered flags are plotted in the fields. The family then finds the correct numbers on the flags to create the field design. Paths are mowed and cut weekly. Each year brings a new design which is a spectacular site from the air.
