-By Paige Long, a Cox Farms Farmhand

What position do you hold at Fields of Fear?
I am a proud part of the Cornightmare acting team!

What is it like to work in your position?
It’s nice to work in my position. . . I come out from my hiding spot, make my approach, and yell as loud as I can.

What motivated you to apply to work at Cox Farms’ Fields of Fear?
I had nothing to do over the fall season, and I wanted an activity where I’d have some fun.


What has been your best memory of working at Fields of Fear so far?
I once made a grown man scream higher than I could ever imagine.  That’s a memory that always sticks out in my mind! 

Connor – a 2012 Fields of Fear Scaretician

What is your favorite part about working at Fields of Fear?
My favorite part of work is the great people I am privileged to work with! And getting paid is a bonus!

You were recently declared Best Cornundrum Scare of the Night.  What are you doing to celebrate (Connor was rewarded with a few extra bucks)?
My bonus has gone nowhere as of right now.  My pocket is and will be its home, at least until I figure out what I’d like to do with it!

Behind the Scenes With Our Farmhands at the Fall Festival

-By Paige Long, a Cox Farms Farmhand

Say hello to Gillian B, a new employee to the 2012 Fall Festival at Cox Farms!

What position do you hold at the Fall Festival?
I work down at the hayride start, giving rules, directing the tractors, and helping everybody get on.

What is it like to work in your position?
It’s really awesome working here because I get to spend all day talking with kids about their visits and Halloween. It’s cool to see everybody so excited about everything that’s going on!

What motivated you to apply to work at Cox Farms?
When I first moved here several years back, I started going to Fields of Fear, and last year I decided I wanted to start working there.  Fall is my favorite season, so I thought working at the festival would be the perfect fit.

What is your favorite memory of working at Cox Farms?  Your worst?
My favorite memory would have to be getting to play with the one-week old baby goats.  One of the youngest ones ran over to me while I was feeding them and let me pick her up and I don’t think I’ve ever held an animal that was that soft.

Is it cliché to say I don’t think I had any bad memories so far?  The worst would have to be when I ran out of bubbles for my bubble gun – that was a bummer…

What is something a Cox Farms customer MUST do before leaving the farm?
You can’t leave the farm without going down the dinosaur slide. I went on my first ride of the season today and it was even better than I remembered.

There you have it!  Talk to Gillian at hayride start, try Cox Farms’ famous kettle corn, and go down the dinosaur slide the next time you swing by the farm!
