SQUEEZE-YOUR-OWN APPLE CIDER

BARNYARD MYSTERY CORN MAZE

Closed in 2020. Sadly, back in May/June, when we needed to be putting in the corn maze, it appeared life was still going to be shut down this fall and we were going to be unable to open a corn maze, so we did not cut our field.  Knowing what we know now, we wish we had gone ahead and cut it for you all.  So sorry.  Thanks for your understanding and patience with this.
