If you happen to be in the vicinity of Sunderland, MA in the next couple of months you might want to drop by Warner Farm* and check out Mike’s Maze, an eight-acre corn maze that attracts over 8000 visitors every fall.
As you can see, this year’s maze has a literary theme commemorating Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland as she grows “to new heights” to take up the entire eight acre field. And “just as Alice had to navigate the characters and creatures of Wonderland, maze-goers must navigate the twists and turns of our corn field in Sunderland” mustering “their knowledge of Carroll’s classic children’s story to successfully ace acres of trivia and come out with a coveted farm prize!”
*Warner Farm is one of the oldest and longest running family farms in New England. Ten generations of Warners have farmed here in Sunderland, MA since the 1720’s.
