LushAcre Farm Fall Festival and Corn Maze will open its gates for the first time Saturday with plans to run the festival 11 a.m. until dark every Friday and Saturday until Nov. 6.

Proceeds from the event will support Thornwell, a nonprofit organization that serves children and families in need across Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.

Located on 340 acres of Thornwell’s residential campus, LushAcres Farm is an agrotourism hub featuring locally grown products and livestock, as well as family-focused events. The LushAcres Farm Market opened to the public in June offering farm-fresh produce and goods to an area historically considered a food desert.

“Stewarding the farm is a way to extend Thornwell’s mission to build strong children and families, while enhancing the surrounding communities,” Brandon Bowers, LushAcres Farm director, said in a news release. “As good stewards of the land we’ve been entrusted with, our goal is to see the children and families of Thornwell, as well as the local community, thrive as they learn about and enjoy the farm’s bounty. Now, we are beyond excited to welcome our community to the farm for our inaugural Fall Festival and Corn Maze.”

 Festival attendees can enjoy the mile-long maze, hayrides, bonfires and s'mores, a mini train and concessions. Tickets are $10, and children 3 and under get in free.

“We see agritourism as a way to support Thornwell’s mission and all those we serve,” Bowers said in the release. “When visitors come to a festival, buy a locally sourced product in our market, or simply come to experience nature, they are not only creating lasting memories and traditions, but they are also ensuring financial support that goes directly to children and families benefiting from Thornwell’s continuum of care.
