  ab111111How Happy Day Farm was started. In 2004 my wife and I were blessed with the arrival of our beautiful daughter Trinity.  In 2006 when Trinity was 2 years old I thought it would be a great idea to grow a pumpkin patch so we took a ride to Manalapan Hardware  and bought a few packets of pumpkin seeds and planted them in a garden 30 x 30.  To my surprise since I had not grown pumpkins before our pumpkin patch was very successful. One Sunday in October when the pumpkins were ready for harvest my daughter and I went over to pick the pumpkins, we took many pictures and we both got such enjoyment and delight out of how successful our pumpkin patch grew.   That day I had an idea that next year we would make the pumpkin patch larger and start an October Fest party and invite all of our family and friends.  In 2007 we doubled our pumpkin patch to a 60 x 60 garden and again we had another successful year growing our pumpkins. That year we were unable to have our October Fest because my wife and I were once again blessed with the arrival of our son Liam.In 2008 with the success of growing pumpkins the past 2 years I decided to grow yet another pumpkin patch but this time on 1 acre of land and we were finally able to have our October Fest with family and friends who enjoyed a fun fall day.  In 2009 with our success of growing pumpkins I decided to try my hand at my first corn maze.  To my surprise the corn maze was a success and this too became a part of our now annual October Fest.  As you can imagine as our family and friends grow our October Fest has continued to get larger and larger.  In 2010 I decided to turn my success and love for growing pumpkins and the corn maze and my love for planting the earth’s fruit into my passion to open Happy Day Farm. See the Magic for Yourself at Happy Day Farm!!! blank linelong in-the-news

Happy Day Farm

Remember that movie Signs, where crop circles start popping up everywhere, and Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix are brothers (hahaha), and then aliens invade, but then everyone finds out like 20mins later that you can kill them with water? Well Jerseywood is like that, except minus Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix and aliens (phew), and plus way, way cooler crop circles An homage to NJ’s own Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, Frank Sinatra, and Joe Pesci, Jerseywood’s an epic, 10-acre corn maze that lets you walk through the Rushmore-esque mugs of all four dudes, or even sprint, if you were Born to Run. Twelve bucks gets you all-day access to two maze entrances, the first of which is pretty easy and the second of which’ll take you 90-ish minutes, with helpful hints on which turns to take provided if you can 1) answer a series of text message trivia, and 2) figure out how to text message on your hot pink Razr And if that doesn’t get you excited (it does, but keep reading anyway), the maze-owning farm’ll also have pig races, plus let you play with a pumpkin blaster and a corn cannon — or at least, until M. Nightfall. manalapanpatch Updated August 29, 2012 at 2:24 pm Happy Day Farm – 10 acre corn maze, 10 acre pumpkin patch, hayrides, corn stalk tunnel, kids hay mountain, horse shaped tire swings, pig racing, pumpkin blaster, corn cannon, pedal carts, petting zoo, pony rides, hay tunnel, right turn only maze, rubber duck racing, face painting, corn box, kids hay maze, play ground, hay tunnel, photo cutout signs, live entertainment, DJ, snacks and refreshments available.  Birthday parties available. 97 Daum Rd., Manalapan, New Jersey – Grand Opening September 22nd & September 23rd open through October 28th.  Open: Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday 11:00 am – 5:00 pm.
