The Villages Florida Area Real Estate: Where Have All the Corn Mazes Gone?

Where Have All the Corn Mazes Gone?

My family's favorite Corn Maze wasn't grown this year!  Every time I drove by the field, I wondered where we would go.  Now the time comes, and I am finding it just as much of a dilema.

I was able to save the day (or season) by finding a maze in Middlefield at Lyman Orchards (where we pick our blueberries every July and August--oh yum!).  If you haven't been, you are in for a treat.  Be sure to get lost while getting there--it is the best way to experience the beautiful hillsides of orchards. Click here to find out more and to get your $1.00 off coupon!  Tickets are $5 for children 4-12, and $9 for adults ages 13 and up.  Ages 3 and under are free.  See their website for hours of operation - and have a great time!!  As an added incentive, $1 from every ticket sold goes to the American Cancer Society.

Corn mazes are fun.  And it's that time of year again.  Glad you found a Plan B

They are great fun as long as you have a navigator! I wonder if the Garmin would help?

Chris, the obstacles at Lyman Orchards I like to challenge are a bit south of this field, and a bit more expensive than that. Mazes are fun, and theirs is a good sized one.

Not too many of those mazes left in our area either; good that you found one.

I love those!  One year we did that as team activity at work.  It was somewhere in CT, so it may be the original place you were talking about.

Ed - Golfing is a bit like a maze, don't you think!? 

Teral - I bet they don't have too many wheat fields in Plano anymore either - that's what used to be where WalMart now is at Park and Preston (I used to live on the other side of the wall)! 

Debbie - You should check out the one at Weed Orchard - Pick Your Own (it's in Marlboro, New York; probably a lot closer to you).  : )

Hello Chris _ I've never seen a corn maze.  It looks pretty cool.  Have a great evening.

Chris I have never seen a "corn maze" but like the play on words.  Sounds like a fun family event.

Id love to make it out that way, that looks like a fun activity for a family!

hello again Chris, I hope you like the cold better than the hot. Sure enough, not too many wheat fields around either but I do see a few from where I am at. I suspect they will be gone in a few more years.
