For the fall season, Hubb’s Farm is ready to celebrate North Carolina and its history.
The excitement for co-owner Tammy Peterson is scheduled to begin Saturday and Sunday and will continue through Saturday, Nov. 14 at the field located at 10276 N. U.S. Highway 421, between Clinton and Dunn. Each weekend has a different theme. Some of the scheduled include a celebration for the armed forces, hometown heroes and living history.
“Each year, we try to add some things and freshen things up,” Peterson said. “We’re very excited and pleased with how many smiles we see when people come out. It’s important to us that Hubb’s Corn Maze is seen as a family environment that’s safe and fun.”
For the first weekend, “Carolina Kids” is the first titled theme and is scheduled for 1 to 5 p.m. The purpose is to celebrate youth in the state. The farm is expecting a visit from Falcon Children’s Home to enjoy the Maze. Weather permitting, an air drop with goodies is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
“We’re also doing that three different times this year,” Peterson said.
Another exciting weekend Peterson is looking forward to is the Tough As a Farmer Competition on Nov. 7, which feature teams competing by completing farm activities. In the future, she alluded to how it would be great if the competition grew and included teams throughout North Carolina and nearby states.
“We got some pretty tough farmers around here,” Peterson said. “The question is ‘Are you tough as a farmer?’”
On the last day, Hubb’s is hosting a day with eastern style barbecue with a pilgrimage theme.
Peterson believes residents take the state’s history for granted sometime.
“We wanted to celebrate our state,” Peterson said. “I think it’s really important that we celebrate our county and to come to North Carolina.
“We got a pretty awesome state and pretty awesome county,” Peterson said. “I’m glad to be here.”
In addition, the Hubb’s Farms is also preparing for its Trail of Fears, which is located half a mile behind the regular maze. The theme for 2015 is “The Lost Colony.” Peterson said it coincides with the state and history theme.
“We got zombies, pilgrims and all sorts of things back there,” Peterson said. “I’m not sure what happened to the lost colony. They still may be here.”
Now celebrating its eighth year, the name has been changed from Hubb’s Corn Maze to Hubb’s Farm. Throughout the year, more events and activities will be added for the public.
