Before venturing into Deere Farms? labyrinthine corn maze, visitors are equipped with a map, a short orientation, and?as a last resort?the farm?s cell-phone number. Groups work together to seek out all the checkpoints scattered across 8 miles of twists and turns. Even with an acute sense of direction, adventurers usually take about 45 minutes to navigate their way to freedom.
The checkpoints are one of many ways that Deere Farms infuses traditional fall activities with creative twists. The farm also hosts classic fall adventures on its 170 acres. Visitors can take an idyllic hayride through the woods or hop aboard an antique tractor and ride into the 20-acre pumpkin patch in search of the perfect gourd for carving or stomping into a pie. Before departing, they stop to see the menagerie of farm animals, including ducks, chickens, turkeys, geese, pigs and goats.

Gated docks add security to the marina and prevent ogling from passing garbage barges.
A lifestyle portrait from RedTree is an ideal way to commemorate a milestone, be it graduation from high school, incumbent pregnancy, a new roommate, or an even faster particle accelerator. All sessions are taken at the location of your choosing, from parks and downtown urban areas to homes and dimly lit parking lots (the location must be within a 10-mile radius of St. Matthews). Owner and lead photographer Josh Perkins will come to you like a Nutella craving, but with a high-end camera ready to capture smiles. The session will last 30 minutes ($75), after which you'll schedule a viewing session to come to the studio on New Lagrange Road and choose your photos. You'll end up with a high-resolution digital file of one picture ($150), two 8x10 prints ($100), and two 5x7 prints ($50). Two poses are included, and the photos will be enhanced and retouched for optimal appearance.
