September 18–October 31, 10am–7pmWhere
McDonald’s Greenhouse 3100 Adamsville Rd, Zanesville, OH 43701
This year, McDonald’s Greenhouse owner James (“Old”) McDonald cut his 5-acre corn maze design in the shape of the Ohio Farm Bureau Centennial Logo — the same image that was painted on their bank barn this May by the Barn Artist, Scott Hagan, from Belmont County. Hagan painted the Ohio Bicentennial logo on 88 barns, one for each country across Ohio in 2003.
Every year, Old McDonald sees families make their annual trek to the farm. They gather up the grandparents and cameras each fall to get a hayride, pumpkins, mums and fresh apple cider. A favorite attraction, the farm offers pick-your-own pumpkins. There also is a 48×80 barn full of agricultural exhibits ready to host events out of the weather.
This year, the family added a petting zoo barn to get the farm animals up close and personal.
McDonald’s Greenhouse encourages preschoolers, school students, scout groups and church congregations to contact them now to schedule ahead for an enjoyable time and even a bonfire.
