Corn maze design honors veterans this fall

Corn maize for veteran farmers

FARMINGTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — Veteran farmers are getting honored in a somewhat unusual way.

Sandy River Farms in Farmington has teamed up with the Maine chapter of United Farmer Veterans, which supports vets who want to pursue farming after their service.

Corn maze paths have been cut into the shape of the United Farmer Veterans logo, and visitors get through the maze by answering questions about Maine's veterans.

Over the next few weeks, veteran advocacy groups will be at the corn maze in to raise awareness about causes related to Maine veterans as well.

Sandy River Farms owner Bussie York said it's all about education.

“Even though it only lasts a month, it goes a lot further than that because we have about 4,000 to 5,000 people that visit the corn maze each year,” he said.

Active duty military and veterans are getting free entry at Sandy River Farms this year too.
