City Girl was at the farm a couple of weeks ago in Clinton, NC! I was honored to be a guest at Hubb’s Farm media day where we toured their ten-acre corn maze and I participated in some fun-fun-fun activities. It was my first time visiting both Clinton & Hubb’s Farm, which is located approximately seventy miles outside of Morrisville, NC. The farm is home to Hubb’s Corn Maze, which celebrates their 10th annual fall festival as of September 16th. The festival is the largest fall festival in Eastern North Carolina and is open until November 11th.
This fall, the corn maze celebrates the North Carolina Gold Rush. Did you know the first gold rush happened in NC? This was a fun fact I learned on media day. Hubb’s Farm also has special themed weekends like First Responders Weekend, Thank A Farmer Weekend, Pirate Invasion Weekend and Freedom USA Weekend. If you have visited Hubb’s Corn Maze before, you will discover that each experience will be different. This year, the corn maze has two new additions including Paydirt Pete’s Treasure Mine, where visitors “mine” for treasures and a Mini Zip Line. Note the zip line does have a weight capacity of 100 pounds or less.
Hubb’s Farm is a wonderful weekend outing for Family Fun, but singles young at heart wanting to escape city life will also have an awesome time. My drive was slightly over an hour and it was nice exploring a new city in North Carolina. I may be an adult, but I had way too much fun on the Double-Barrel 17-foot Giant Slide and the Giant Jump Pillow.
For kid’s seeking cardio pumping adventures, Hubb’s has Rope Mountain. I did not try climbing the mountain because I did not wear the proper shoes. However, this is an awesome activity that will likely require tennis shoes.
Other activities at Hubb’s Farm include a pumpkin patch, tractor-drawn hay ride, Cranky the Combine, Animal Acres, “Crops of Fun” Play Land, Toddler Town, Giant Sand Box, House of Corn, Human Foosball, the Hubb’s Express Train Ride, Tough as a Farmer Competition and a covered picnic pavilion where you can purchase concessions. Some of the menu items at Hubb’s include fried Oreos, fried Pop Tarts, Hubb’s hot donuts, muscadine grape slushies and more. Heartier items include cheese burgers, cheesy bacon hot dogs, bologna sandwiches, nachos and more.
Don’t wait too long before you decide to venture out to Hubb’s Farm. It is open each weekend through November 11th, beginning with Fridays from 6-10 p.m., Saturdays from noon-10 p.m., and Sundays 1-6 p.m.
Hubb’s Farm also accommodates field trips, groups of all ages and parties. Although the corn maze’s last official weekend is November 11th, Hubb’s has other events throughout the year, for holidays such as Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day and other special events. Hubb’s Farm is one of the state’s largest agri-tourism farms and is operated by Tammy and John Peterson. It is located at 10276 US Hwy 421 N, Clinton, NC 28328.

Hubb’s is a fun adventure for kids and adults of all ages. I was most impressed by how immaculate the grounds are and the amount of activities available. Next time I visit, I look forward to trying their concessions, including their fried Pop Tarts and muscadine grape slushies! Don’t let the fall pass you by and miss out on the fun in Clinton, NC!
