We have so much fun when we visit Green Hand. It always delivers a great time for the whole family. From the cow train to the corn maze to the paintball. They have something fun for everyone. The spider climber was so much fun along with the hay bails. And the campfire was awesome. We will be back!! It’s well worth the trip to Gloucester

We went early Sunday morning and easily found parking at 11am. My kids enjoy inflatable jumping hill so we spent about half hour on it. Then we took zombie paintball which was an absolute highlight to the trip - my 7yo got scared and shot zombies like a pro. We have a son with special needs who is 18 and he thoroughly enjoyed zombies. Ride attendant so as zombies gave us plenty time to reload guns as well as meet zombies. I have to say I didn’t think my kids would be scared but they definitely enjoyed the ride.
My oldest has celiac so we were happy to find out their hot dogs were sold in separate plastic bags so we wrapped hot dogs in aluminum foil and toasted on a nearby bone fire.
I highly recommend to bring baby wipes and you are planning to send kids off on a wagon ride - my kids were completed dusted with dirt but they had a blast. I bought two tickets each but they didn’t want to ride again (wonder why).
We were at the farm for 4 hours and time fly by so we didn’t get to do everything because there were some other site visits in Gloucester that I planned.
This was our second visit and we definitely plan to come back next year. Everyone at the farm was friendly. My husband said portapotty was clean. I can’t speak for BBQ place on site since hot dogs on bone fire was good enough for us. They sell do it yourself s’mores kit as well as funnel cakes, snacks and drinks. There was inflatable slide, corn maze, large playground with ride on toys and hayride - all fun. Farm is not visible from highway but trust your GPS and you’ll make it there.

Here we go again with our crew of teens and preteens on our annual fall trek to Green Hand Farms Park. This is a place where we have created sooo many memories from daytime in the corn maze to nighttime in the maze with flashlights. Every year we sit around the campfire; roast hotdogs, share Christian experiences, sing songs and eat s'mores. Every attraction from the haystack, cow train, trikes, bouncing pad, inflatables, paintball, tractor ride, water pumps, cornhole, pumpkin patch etc are part of our remembrances. We have been visiting this location every year since its Inception and have watched it develop into a great place for our family.

Enjoyed the farm. Yes, the drought does affect the experience...but it's what you make it. Still had a great time. Great activities for young children. Only suggestion iabto take the PLU stickers off the pumpkins that have been placed in the fields.

Let me start by acknowledging that this farm suffered from a drought and therefore did not have the pumpkin crop that they anticipated. That is outside of their control and there is nothing they can do to change the weather. What can they control? Charging full price for an experience that was not what they promised. By the time we entered on Sunday afternoon, there were no pumpkins, limited food options and broken attractions. The only food item you could order from one of the stands was chicken nuggets and fries for a grossly overpriced $10. The cow train was not operational for at least 45 minutes. The corn cannon did not work at all during our time here and though they specifically list "inflatables" (plural) on their website there was a singular slide that was likely used far beyond maximum capacity because no employees were stationed there. When I brought these issues up upon our departure, I was informed of the drought and told that they were very busy the day before. So the people who paid full price yesterday get what they fairly paid for and because I happened to choose Sunday instead of Saturday I'm charged the same price but without everything in return? I brought up that the fair thing to do would be for them to disclose their issues to their customers before allowing them to pay. Tell me there's no pumpkins, no food and certain things aren't working correctly and then if I choose to proceed with paying that's on me. Don't take my money under the guise of one thing and then give me another. It's dishonest and sickening. We absolutely will not return and I would not recommend it to anyone else. We'll be headed back to Belmont next year.

My family and I took a drive up to the Green Hand Farm Park from Virginia Beach because we wanted to go to a Pumpkin Patch that was going to be new to us. I found out about Green Hand Farm Park on Groupon because they were offering a 50% off discount for admission. They normally charge $12.50 per person, so GROUPON was the way to go here! I got 4 admissions for $25. They had other options on GROUPON to upgrade your trip and add some extras on -- I did NOT do any add-ons because I wasn't sure if my kids (ages 5 & 2) would enjoy the extras -- I was WRONG! GET THE EXTRAS!

We had a BLAST on Saturday! We arrived about 1pm. and waited about 10-15 minutes to get through the admissions line. We were given our wrist bands and a map of the corn maze and we were sent on our way! Green Hand Farm had a good size HayBale Mountain for the kids to play on, one bounce house, a water well for the kids, rope spider web, concession stands, hayride to the pumpkin patch, the cow car races (we did not do these either, but WISHED WE WOULD HAVE! This is another $3 per rider, but looked SO FUN), a HUGE bounce pillow, a bunch of random kid activities, the corn maze, and zombie paintball! They had more, but these activities we either participated in or watched closely!!

We did end up paying to play Zombie Paintball --- everyone's favorite event of the day! You had to buy a bag of paintballs for $10, but all of us could ride in the car together and share the paintballs. You also had the opportunity to purchase more paintballs mid-way through the ride. It was a cool idea and a lot of fun!

The corn maze was a little weak, but that wasn't the reason we went to this Farm, so it didn't spoil our day. The corn stalks were not very tall, you could easily cheat the maze if that's how you wanted to finish. Overall, we had a great day at Green Hand Farm. It was a gorgeous weather and it never felt too crowded. If you are looking for some family fun, go for a visit!

New to the state of Va, lol be going to corn mazes. Had great one in PA. This one was on the same website as the one we always went to in Pa. What a huge disappointment when we arrived. The maze was a field of weeds, under grown corn stalks, grasshoppers and walk ways had the weeds and corn stalks across them. For the price we paid I would of expected the maze to be the same quality of the one in PA especially being on the same website. All the activities were extra not included in the entrance price which is 12.50 p/p cash only also, we purchased our tickets online for 1.00 less p/p. Next year we will be looking for another maze hoping it will be better.

This is a farm/park with a corn maze and many activities for the entire family. There is a pumpkin patch where you can pick your own pumkin and they charge by the pound. There are other activities like the cow train and paintball zombie shooting for and additional fee. Our time at the farm was nice. I was a little disappointed with the corn maze because I've been to others in PA that were better organized with clues and puzzle pieces that you gather and tape to a board. This one had nothing but numbers to text for clues. The zombie paintball could've had more actors too. Been there done that. Once was enough.
