It features a 40-acre corn maze either by the light of day or by the glimmer of stars and flashlights in the evening. There is also a haunted house, games, go-carts, pumpkins sales, hay rides and more. But the star attraction are the pumpkin blasters. It’s the only place on earth that you can find the answer personally to the question: How far can you lob a minipumpkin using a 6-foot barrel with sights? The answer is about 200 yards. Farmer Ron Dell’Osso has designed and had six “pumpkin blasters” welded from steel. For $5, you get a bucket of ammo — 12 minipumpkins to be exact — that you can fire away at targets that include the standard open mouths on Halloween characters and hanging tires. For more information on the
Dell’Osso Farms Corn Maze go to www. pumpkinmaze.com.
