Farm Update Part 3 – The Big Corn Maze
Our biggest addition for 2013 is an almost 3 acre corn maze! We know of only 3 other corn mazes in the Northern Nevada region and they are awesome! So we thought we would try our hand at a big corn maze. We planted a type of corn referred to as field corn. It is grown for the purpose of harvesting for feed for animals or to be used to make corn meal or corn flour. Field corn is great for mazes because the stalks grow very tall (Our tallest is about 9 feet at the writing of this blog post) and the leaves on the stalks are big and full. Here are some pictures of our growing process.
