Young’s Jersey Dairy now has a very special corn maze. This maze was named after Cowvin, the baby of the Cow Family, and he has created a family fun maze. The maze is created from over 150,000 square feet (more than 3½ acres) of cornfield and has over one mile of paths. Cowvin’s Corny Maze goes through the big cornfield and has many twists, dead-ends and tricky twists. Needless to say, it’s an adventure! Bring your comfortable athletic shoes because you will be in for a nice bout of exercise navigating this course. The maze is open this weekend, Saturday, August 29th and Sunday, August 30th from 11:00 am until 6:00 pm. After September 4th, the maze will be open daily during the same hours until October 31st. Ages 5 and up, the cost is $5.50 per person, children under 4 are free. After figuring out Cowvin’s Corny Maze some ice cream might be just hit the spot at Young’s Jersey Dairy!
