We see it all around us, Fall has arrived!  It’s time to carve pumpkins, venture through haunted farms and corn mazes with trepidation and humor. Local Western North Carolina farms do it right by mowing corn mazes, letting you cruise on a hayride and send you loose through chilling scenes of murder and mayhem. Here’s where to get your Fall fix for that chaotic mix of fear, laughter and confusion!
