Meet a Local Farmer! Our Visit to Meadows Maze #PittMeadows, BC

A couple of weeks ago my family joined up with the YVR Bloggers group again and spent the afternoon at Meadows Maze in Pitt Meadows. August 9 was opening day for the corn maze, so first we joined the party at Hopcott Meats, a family-run butcher store owned by the same Hopcott family that operates the maze. We learned a bit of the farm’s history and got to meet some local growers, ranchers, and food producers. We enjoyed sampling some local fare, and Kay got her face painted.

Then we headed over to Meadows Maze which boasts a 17 acre corn maze in three parts. This year’s design celebrates the 100 year anniversary of the 4H Club in British Columbia!


We rode the Corn Maze Express through the maze, but I have to tell you that it was a really hot, dusty day, and with two younger kids, we chose not to actually do any of the mazes. I think if your kids are older, they’ll enjoy the maze challenges more, but at 2 and 4 my girls were just a little too young.

We did enjoy the other activities on site though. The kids loved petting the goats and bunnies, and Tee must have gone down the 40 foot pipe slide on her burlap sack at least a dozen times. Kay and I got to take the plunge too!

The girls also bowled with acorn squashes and pretended to drive the tractor, but Kay’s absolute favourite part of the day was decorating the wooden pigs. She must have spent 45 minutes sitting quietly and drawing on them.

At the end of our fun afternoon, we walked through the corn to the “cornference” rooms and joined the rest of our group making S’mores over the campfire. Unfortunately, we had to leave right away as the day had just been too long without a nap for Kay. She melted down faster than a marshmallow over a campfire!

On the way out we ran into Hopcott’s and picked up some smokies for Kay’s birthday barbecue. I felt comfortable feeding my children these hot dogs as all Hopcott’s beef is locally and ethically raised with no added hormones or steroids. Buy local!
