Every fall, as the leaves turn orange and the air becomes crisp, owners David and Patricia Hand open up a portion of their operating farm to the general public. Aptly named the Green Hand Farm Park, the agricultural attraction features an 8-acre corn maze that challenges families, students, and office groups to work together to find their way out. The labyrinth takes on a new theme each year—such as a salute to the American soldier—and incorporates facts and clues. As maze participants interrogate corn stalks for directions, hayrides journey to a pumpkin patch and young visitors leap and bound over bales of hay. At night, campfires spring to life for cooking hot dogs and s'mores. Aside from these attractions, there is a farm market to lure visitors.

HomeBrew USA sets soon-to-be brewmasters on a path to filling up kegs and bottles with homemade concoctions, outfitting frothy-art aficionados with all the necessary apparatuses to get started. An ideal Father's Day gift for craft-brew-crazy dads, a comprehensive homebrewing equipment kit should contain all the necessary hardware for fermenting, bottling, and capping, including buckets, siphon, airlock, hydrometer, and a security system that loudly plays "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" to ward off intruders. For a simple-yet-effective setup, the Bare Bones kit employs single-stage fermentation, in which brewing and bottling are done in the same vessel ($49.99), and the Basic bundle boosts brewers to the next level with an extra bottling vessel for clearer beer and easier carbonation, plus a bottle filter, brush, and cleaner ($96.99). More proactive beer-makers can pick up the Plus package, which sports a complete dual-fermentation system, using two buckets and a five-gallon glass carboy for a multi-stage process that reduces yeast sediment and creates clearer beer ($160).

For Robert Stokes Jr., making a vehicle shine like it did the day it left the assembly line isn't just a talent, but a family dedication passed on from generation to generation. His father first taught him the value of caring for an automobile, giving him the inspiration to open his own mobile auto-detailing service in 1995. Robert's down-to-earth approach to dealing with clients and his scrutinizing eye for detail helped his business grow into a full-service production with two physical locations and several mobile cleaning units. No vehicle is too big or too small for Robert’s crew at The Gift Auto Detailing Center; they have serviced everything from tiny coupes and honey-I-shrunk-the-station-wagons to speedboats and large storage trailers.
