Hiram Day at Derthick’s Farm and Corn Maze

We welcome all Hiram Alumni, Friends, Students, Faculty, and Staff to join the Office of Alumni Relations for a Family Fun Day at Derthick's Farm and Corn Maze. This year's corn maze is a tribute to John Glenn, Ohio native, as the first man to orbit the earth 50 years ago. Located just three miles west of Hiram on Route 82, the Derthick family has built an autumn playland with a friendly atmosphere filled with activities to delight all ages. The farm experience includes wagon rides, pony rides, corn hole, farm animal encounters, and a ride on the Bucking Cow train. They even have a "pick-your-own" pumpkin patch that spans several acres. The Office of Alumni Relations will be on site with special Hiram give-a-ways and treats. Other concessions are available on the farm. Click HERE to register for this event.
