Airdate: September 12th, 2023
One of many Central Pennsylvanians’ favorite fall fun activities is exploring a corn maze.
Cherry Crest Adventure Farm in Ronks, Lancaster County has one of the best in the country. USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice contest chose Cherry Crest’s corn maze number one in the nation in 2020 and it’s placed in the top three in 2021 and 2022. Cherry Crest is nominated again this year and the winner will be announced this Friday.
Cherry Crest owners Jack and Donna Coleman spoke with The Spark on Tuesday’s program. Donna was asked what makes their corn maze unique,”I think it’s the interactiveness of our corn maze. We have a lot of activities going on in the maze. You have to find them in order to enjoy the fun part. But yeah, there’s a lot of interaction in our corn maze, not only trying to find pieces to the puzzle to build your map and find your way out, but also play while you’re in there.”
Cherry Crest Adventure Farm is more than just a corn maze. There are more than 60 farm-related activities.
Donna Coleman said there are many people who visit Cherry Crest who aren’t familiar with farms,”It’s actually amazing because there are people who have never been this close to a corn stock in their whole entire life. And you still get the kids who think their milk comes from the grocery store or their corn is produced at the store itself. They don’t understand the whole concept. So that’s one of the main reasons why we started this as well, is to educate the public about where their food comes from and where would they be without farmers.”
The Colemans continue to farm the land producing corn, pigs, and chickens.
