Our Fall corn maze and the Spring Country Market are now located north of Dry Creek,
just a short country drive north of Lake Charles! Weather permitting, CM Farms grows cantaloupe and watermelon in the spring and summer (along with other crops). Our produce will be for sale in the Country Market. In the fall - we grow a-Maze-ing farm fun! It's old-fashioned family fun, country-style.
Meet our resident Longhorns and their sidekick, WhiteFace, an Angus crossbred family pet - and that's just for starters! We have some cacklin' chickens and a flock of famous Gulf Coast sheep. Oh...and add goats! Sound fun? C'mon out!
