About Us

Country Corner is the boy-hood dream come true for the farm's owner, Bruce "O'Lantern" Curry.

Forty some years later, Bruce now farms over 80 acres of working farm land, with some of the richest soil in the area, resulting in great tasting vegetables and fruit. Country Corner has a fully stocked farm market, complemented by a beautiful park in a timber setting, a large covered pavillion, picnic area, and a playground.

Country Corner also has pick your own pumpkin's, u-pick strawberries & red raspberries, a barn yard zoo, an outdoor education center, and a 8-acre corn maze. More than 35,000 customers visit the farm each year, including over 5,000 people on private farm tours. The farm and market offer entertaining and educational tours customized for people of all ages.

The Fall Fun Park includes a tractor drawn hayrack ride, more than 25 animals in the barn yard zoo, a large inflatable jump house, corn shock maze, the learning center, pumpkin games in the timber park, and much more. New features include mining for gem stones, the corn cannon, and our own cow train.

Many weekend festivals are held in September and October, with a variety of crafts, live entertainment, and exhibitions of antique machinery and autos, and giant pumpkins.
