“Bob and I took our oldest grandchild, JB, to Millwood Farm for the corn maze – Nathan France’s third adventure into mazes – and had a blast,” recalled Stephanie Sanford. In addition to France’s bigger, better, and more exciting maze, there is a Honey Bee Train, putt-putt golf, a cornbox (think sandbox with shelled corn), duck races utilizing pitcher pumps on watering troughs, tic-tac-toe on straw bales and more. They even have hot dogs, chips and drinks. Don’t forget to buy your pumpkins for Halloween and fall decorating!
This year’s maze still features Mrs. Ester Ladybug and her eight children who watch over the pumpkin crop. Part of the “amazing” fun is finding all the ladybug children who have fun hiding in the maze. There are also seven orange rocks, each with a letter, find them all and unscramble the letters to solve the puzzle!
Millwood Farm’s Corn Maze is on Rt. 3 near Lyells substation, 23709 Kings Hwy, watch for the “geese.”
“We had a great time,” continued Sanford, “spent about an hour or so in the maze, yes, it’s that big, and JB enjoyed all the activities.”
Millwood Farm Maze is open Saturday 10–6 p.m. and Sunday 1–6 p.m. thru Halloween. Call 804-761-5683 to reserve appointment Monday – Friday. The paths in the corn maze are wide enough for a children’s or garden type wagon; but, may be a bit bumpy.
