Winterbrook Farms is a second generation 327 acre farming operation that produces thousands of bales of hay every year. The primary focus is supplying local horse farms with top-quality hay. Looking to diversify and find another means of supporting the farm, Jan & Kristen Lawyer decided to start the area’s very first “Corn Maze” in the year 2000. It was cut by Jan Lawyer using a skid loader and it had a completely random and unique design. In 2001 Jan & Kristen decided to hire a small family company, called Mazeplay, to cut a design that would incorporate a map and checkpoints. This added to the “fun” of getting lost in the corn field. Now, over 18 years later, Mazeplay still returns to the farm each August to cut a new design into the field. Winterbrook Farms is 1 of over 100 farms that Mazeplay travels to across the country and of all the mazes they cut, we are still one of the largest in the Country!
