A visitor writes on August 11,
2014: "Siegel's Cottonwood farm has become a family tradition. We love
to go to the farm, see the animals, have a smoked turkey leg, root beer and
fresh apple pie. We have been going for 15 years now. Location is great.
Parking is free and lots of parking. The staff is so friendly and helpful.
We enjoy their produce and the gift store treasures. Our only complaint...it
is not open 12 months of the year...but everyone needs downtime. "
A visitor writes on August 21,
2012: "This place us Awesome! I brought my Grand kids here last year and
they had a blast all day. I love how they have an actually pumpkin field
were the kids can learn where pumpkins are actually grown and pick them
themselves. They also have so many attractions included in the admission
which is great. I hate going somewhere having to pay admission but then have
to pay for just about everything else that there. This is our new place to
go every year in the fall. "
A visitor writes on September 26, 2010:
"I visited Siegel's Cottonwood Farm for the first and only time in Fall
2009. I called first to ask about the corn maze. According to the website
and a person on the phone they were open until 6:00. We got there at about
4:00 figuring that 2 hours should be plenty of time. After only 30 minutes
in the maze an employ came in and asked us to leave as the maze closes an
hour before the rest of the farm. The website should have said that...the
woman on the phone could have told us...the woman who sold us the tickets
should have told us...and the employee who let us into the maze definitely
should have told us! One trip to the manager later, we were allowed back
into the maze for another 20 minutes. We will go to a different maze from
