New Exciting Corn Maze Opens for Fall
We've been cooped up long enough, and we're all chomping at the bit to get out and enjoy our great Michigan weather. And now that fall is just a couple of weeks away, nothing says fall fun like a good old corn maze, and a new one just opened this past weekend!
It took months to design and cut it, but Liv and Stephen McDaniel finally are able to see success after all of their labor on their Alto farm, Deep Roots Produce.
Fox 17 reported the the McDaniel's have only owned the farm for two years, and this year decided to add the corn maze.
You'll find three trails, a kids maze, an intermediate maze and an advanced maze, and depending on how good you are at mazes, someone or ones, could be in there for up to 2 hours.
Another fun part of the maze is that it is designed as two dogs. Although you'll only really be able to tell if you somehow have an sky view.
The mazes ranging from 0.3 miles to nearly 2.5 miles, visitors can choose the length of their journey before enjoying fresh local produce,
Stephen McDaniel said. "There's some platforms in there to get you up above the corn, and there's checkpoints along the way. We have punchcards available, you can check off where you are in the maze and win some fun prizes. We also have produce available and all sorts of goodies, but the corn maze is the big thing this Fall, and the u-pick pumpkin patch as well, with 9 different varieties of pumpkins."
Deep Roots Produce will be open from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. every weekend until Halloween.
The corn maze is open Friday-Sunday from 11 a.m.-6:30 p.m., and will become a little spookier in October as Halloween draws closer.
