Here what everyone is saying about Amazing Grace Crop Maze!!
"We went on opening day and ended up being the first non-school group to go through the maze. The crop was full and tall, which made it a lot of fun. All the activities were great fun for the kids and the parents. We'll be back next year and are telling all our friends about it!"
"We will be back... Maybe even this year. We brought a big group of toddlers aged 2 - 6 and they had so much fun. They were absolutely pooped by the end. There are so many activities that are kid (all ages) friendly."
"Fun for all ages!!! Thank you so much for bringing this to our area. Looking forward to next year!!"
It's an amazing way to join agriculture with tourism; it's the industry of Agritourism and after six generations of farming in her family, Kelly Mosley and her husband have found a way to get people closer to crops.
"It's really exciting for us. Generations ago, our family would farm and they were involved in agriculture because of survival and everything that they grew around the farm is what they needed to produce to survive," said Mosley.
Mosley's family still farms timber and raises beef cattle, but she wanted to expand. So she leased a farm in Green Cove Springs and made it a tourist attraction.
"My husband and I both have jobs off the farm so we saw agritourism as a way to get back to our agricultural roots and so we realized that a lot of people really enjoy coming to our farm," said Mosley.
The five-and-a-half acre sorghum crop maze took 15 months to plan. Mosley says her husband started growing it in June. Now children on field trips get to hear stories about agriculture, play and pick potatoes, and get inside the corn-box.
"We're really excited to teach people that there are farmers and ranchers out there that grow animals and raise crops to feed our country and the world so that's just really important to us," added Mosley.
The maze is the fall favorite. This year it spells out 'Amazing Grace' but there are already plans to make an even bigger and more complex maze next year.
