What happens when you take a cornfield and carve it into giant fish? At Schairer's Autumn Acres, you get 2.5 miles of twists and turns, with checkpoints featuring Wisconsin's freshwater fish along the way. That's an example of one theme featured on their signature, 9-acre corn maze, which takes on a new theme each year.
Everything about the farm springs from a love of fall. Owners Karen and Cory started off by growing pumpkins for themselves, then started planting more and more to sell at local farmers' market—until they were ready to open their own pick-your-own pumpkin patch. The fall at Schairer's also brings horse-drawn wagon rides, a petting zoo, and lots of other farm festivities.
