CORUNNA — The Country Corn Maze, located in eastern Shiawassee County, is in its 11th year of operation.
The Martindale family invites the public to experience their “Never Forget “10 year tribute to 9-11” Corn Maze.
The Country Corn Maze wants to honor all who’s lives were changed since that fateful day. Firefighters, law enforcement, military and all of the loved ones related to them are owed a debt of gratitude for their service and sacrifice in keeping our country and families safe and free in the years since 9-11 and the years to come.
The Country Corn Maze, in cooperation with Maze Play of Firth, Idaho, has designed, mapped and cut four unique mazes to commemorate the 10th anniversary. The maze includes 8.3 miles of paths with a Beginner maze, an Eagle Maze, The Never Forget Twin Towers maze and a Fireman/Flag maze that will help you remember how proud you are and should be to be an American.
Returning for 2011 is “ The Farm Scene Investigation” FSI game, a huge hit in 2010. Farmer Joe is missing again and there are the usual suspects. Who Dunnit? Frank the Pig? Theodore The Bull? Maybe Antonio De’Llama. Find all the clues to solve the mystery.
New for 2011 is “Farm Tracks” — similar to FSI but designed for kids in the beginner maze.
Also new for 2011 is “Farm Scene Education” Designed for school groups and those who are not familiar with food production, these three educational banners help explain how food is grown, processed and how chlorophyll works in plants. It’s a great addition for field trips. This year’s mazes will be fun and challenging for all ages.
The farm offers seasonal produce of sweet corn, pumpkins, corn stalks and straw, also concessions are available in the early 1900s barn.
