Mayfield corn maze begins 8-week run


Fall is right around the corner and that means the folks at Mayfield Farm and Nursery are inviting visitors from across the country to explore their intricately designed corn maze located in Athens, Tenn.

Sponsored by Mayfield Dairy Farms and designed as a tribute to the Boy Scouts of America’s 100-year anniversary, this year’s twisting and winding corn maze is located on eight acres. From September 17 to November 7, Michael Mayfield will welcome visitors to his farm and provide a great place to enjoy family outings, school trips, birthday parties, church outings and company picnics.

In addition to the maze, the attraction includes a pumpkin patch, pumpkin chunkin’ slingshot, animated cows that kids can milk by hand, a tour of an operational dairy parlor showing how cows are milked, hay rides, a corn cannon and pedal cars.

Mayfield ice cream treats, snacks and drinks are available during the week. Hot dogs, hamburgers and other concessions are sold on weekends.

The maze will be open during the week for groups with appointments and to the general public on weekends during the following times: Fridays  4 – 10 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sundays 1 – 7 p.m. Admission is $8.00 per person (2 years and under are FREE). Admission for school groups of 20 or more is $6.00 per person.
