Speaking of passport posts, in the past we have had 10 spots in our maze where you see numbered posts. We will still have that! Guests carry a trivia passport on a topic of their choice and a correct answer gives a clue about which way to turn. Even More aMAZEing Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber and Junior Asparagus say “Hi”. We will have a soybean maze with characters from “Veggie Tales” carved in it. It will have signs posted about fruits, vegetables, and their nutritional value. Don’t forget to try our “No Left Turn” Maze and the “American Maze”, Barnyard Croquet

Please call (423-650-0710) or contact us by email. Because we operate in September and October, we recommend being prepared for cool weather. Dress as if you were going camping. We also recommend wearing closed-toe shoes or sneakers. Remember that you will be in a farm atmosphere and that sometimes the paths can be bumpy! A Few Simple Rules: Please stay on the pathways. Everyone who has gone in the maze has eventually come out, so we can promise that the paths do eventually lead to the exit. Cutting through the rows won’t help you any–and if we catch you, it just may hurt! No picking or throwing corn. Hey, we realize you can do more with corn than just eat it — why else would we be crazy enough to cut a maze into it? But throwing it is still one thing you can’t do. If it hits someone … it hurts! No running. Please remember that this isn’t a race and watch your step on the pathways. Walking through a cornfield isn’t like walking down the sidewalk — there are bumps along the way. We just don’t want one of those bumps to be you! No smoking. Smoking is not allowed anywhere on farm premises. Cigarettes and dry corn stalks are a bad combination. No alcohol. This is good farmin’ fun for people of all ages, including children. In consideration of all maze-goers, alcohol is not allowed on the premises. No inappropriate language. Please be mindful of others and watch what you say when inside the maze. We know that it can get challenging in there (it was designed to be that way), but remember that no one likes to hear bad language and that even the corn has ears, too.
