Noggins Corner Farm is located on Highway 1 in Greenwich, Nova Scotia. It is a working farm - and much more. State-of-the-art storage technology allows the Farm Market to be kept open year-round, providing produce and other treats to Valley residents and visitors.
This farm is also a must stop for a day of family fun, especially during harvest season. Noggins Corner Farm has a roughly 3km long historic walking trail which is great for seeing all kinds of sights and wildlife. The way the trail is laid out you can also choose many other shorter routes if you do not have the time to do the complete walk. Although their trail map and brochure highlight nine points of interest along the trail, if you talk to any of the friendly staff they can point out other treats like a couple of racoon dens. The walk will also take you through other classic valley scenes such as some of the farms orchards and across some of the Dyke Lands along the Cornwallis River. Another treat along the way is a large Bald Eagles nest. Each spring brings back a pair of eagles who typically raise 2-3 eaglets.
During the growing and harvest season Noggins Corner Farm offers many more attractions and activities. They offer a number of U-pick opportunities such as apples, pumpkins, and flowers. By picking your own you really have the choice of how much you take home and the kids really seem to enjoy being able to be involved and having these hands on experiences. In their barnyard adventure area there are many items setup for children to play on. There is a large culvert slide which makes for a fast trip down to the bottom, a large covered sandbox for digging and playing in, and other areas setup for climbing and running through.
Probably one of the most well known attractions that Noggins has to offer is their massive corn maze. It is typically open from August to October and features a huge 9 foot tall corn field planted to make kilometres of paths running through. As your going through the maze there are clues to collect along the way to see if you can make it to all the check points.
When you are ready for a break from all the activities you can have a rest on the hay ride or with a delicious cob of fresh corn and then get back out for some more fun. With all the exciting attractions and staff who truly portray the friendly valley atmosphere Noggins Corner Farm is a must stop.
