Pre-Teen and Teen Health

The fall festivities at Ort Farms have included a corn maze for more than 10 years, but after Superstorm Sandy, the attraction became a means of recognizing local nonprofit organizations. This year, the Long Valley-based business chose to honor Goryeb Children’s Hospital, using our name and logo to form the elaborate twists and turns of the eight-acre maze. Additional family-friendly activities at Ort Farms include pumpkin picking, pony rides and food tents. Partial proceeds from the corn maze will benefit Goryeb.
