About 70 Meneley Elementary School students visited the Corley Ranch on Friday.

The Corley’s annual pumpkin patch and corn maze has been an attraction for area schools throughout the month, with students ranging in age from preschool to college, according to the ranch’s website.

This is the 13th year the working ranch has hosted the harvest festival. The ranch itself dates back 155 years and was originally settled by the Dangbergs.

Pumpkin sales and the country store are open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

On weekends, the ranch offers hay rides, a corn maze, a trampoline show, pig races, farm animal petting and a hay slide.

General admission prices for weekends are $7 with children 2 or younger free. Seniors 55 and older can get in for $5.

The pumpkin patch wraps up for the season on Halloween.
