The magic of Christmas is on full display at a popular Adams County attraction, Erwin Farm and Corn Maze. Owners Mark and Aleisha Erwin just completed another successful fall season at the farm and now are ready to welcome guests back to celebrate the holiday season.
“Never say never,” said Aleisha Erwin during an interview with the Informer. “In 2019, we tried “Christmas on the Farm” and to be honest, it was a complete bust and we vowed to NEVER try that again.” “I love all my customers dearly but I really love Christmas and the small break it gives my family, but some of our seasonal employees expressed their concerns about being jobless after the fall, and to be honest, these kids have stolen my heart,” said Erwin. “I normally would be ready to pack up and hide away but my wheels got to turning and we decided to have Christmas at Erwin’s in hopes of providing jobs, just a bit longer for our seasonal employees who need them.”
Over the past several weeks, the Erwin’s have worked hard at transforming their fall festivities over to Christmas with special features like the corn pit, photo ops, lights, games, an outdoor fire pit, live entertainment, food, horse and carriage rides, and character meet and greets on select dates. They have even revamped their beloved Corn Cob Express barrel train.
“It’s the most magical time of the year, these are some hardworking kids we have on our team, we have the space and are happy to be able to continue to provide employment to those in our community and a fun, family-friendly environment for Adams County. “It is because of your continued support that we are able to do so.”
The opening for Christmas at Erwin’s was on November 26th, and the farm will be open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. during the holiday season. They currently have a limited number of pre-cut trees and poinsettias for purchase. The Farm Store is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. for all of your holiday shopping needs.
