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.

    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 now on."
