Why: Enjoy a beautiful fall day on the farm. After apple-picking, visitors can get lost in our annual corn maze. This year’s theme is Charles Lindbergh’s famous Spirit of St. Louis, the single-engine plane he piloted solo in 1927 on the first, nonstop transatlantic flight. One dollar from each admission will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Visitors can soar through this four-acre corn maze, which is actually taller than the iconic airplane itself.
