Since March of 1989, equestrian instructor Diana Bayer uses the pastureland at HeronCrest Stables to teach the principles of dressage horseback riding. During lessons, owner and manager Diana or her daughter Melissa addresses the needs of all levels of riders, even designing lesson plans to educate young children when they’re most eager to learn and least eager to ask the horses for insider information to use at the racetrack. Should the weather fail to cooperate, horse, rider, and instructor will retire to the large Cover-all Arena, complete with a heated viewing lounge and tack room.

McMaze Corn Maze was established more than a decade ago by Sandy McDonald, who designed the family?s first 3.5-acre corn maze when he was just 14 years old. Over the next 10 years, Sandy and his family watched their endeavour blossom into a year-round family-friendly business that hosts seasonal activities year-round. Fall is the family?s busiest season, when visitors flock to find spooks in their farm playground and wagon rides, and explore the pumpkin patch to search out a perfect specimen to be turned into a pie, jack-o?-lantern, or organic football helmet. The original hand-carved corn maze has since multiplied into five separate mazes, including a ?haze maze,? which mystifies wanderers by sending them on a seemingly endless journey through fog and lights, and a door maze that presents 52 possible exits. Winter snowfalls fail to stop the McDonalds? love of celebrating, and so they invite families back to the 120-acre farm for old-fashioned sleigh rides through the woods, made all the more festive with hot chocolate and homemade cinnamon buns. Once the ground thaws in the spring, the farm comes alive again as guests descend upon the fields to help plant the first pumpkin seeds and welcome the arrival of baby farm animals as they parachute down from passing blimps. Homemade ice cream keeps things cool throughout the summer as pig and duck races entertain spectators of all ages, and parents stock up on corn on the cob and other farm-fresh produce.
