Corn mazes were invented by farmers looking for a way to turn a profit from the otherwise useless crop. Support corn’s only function with today’s Groupon to Mayfield Farm & Nursery in Athens. Choose between the following options:

Since Jesse Mayfield founded the Mayfield Farm in 1820, it has been expanded by several generations of family to host yearly harvest activities centered around the corn maze, which whirls visitors through 8 acres of unexpected twists and labyrinthine paths. This season’s maze design pays homage to the fight against breast cancer, allowing visitors to navigate the looping ribbon amid 8-foot-tall stalks. Trivia games woven into the maze test patrons’ mental mettle with a series of clues, with each correct answer leading closer to the exit and a magic cornstalk housing a genie inside. Due to their small size and natural rapport with scarecrows, children 2 and younger are admitted free.
Admission to the corn maze also grants explorers access to a slew of other activities around the farm. Further traverse the soon-to-be-kerneled terrain during a hay-wagon ride, claim kingship on mountains of hay bales and tractor tires, or enter a maize-filled sandbox to build a castle or miniature Statue of Liberty out of corn.
Mayfield Farm & Nursery
Mayfield Farm & Nursery is set up like a theme park of autumnal adventure. On one visit, you can do everything from rooting for your favorite pig in the pig races to picking a giant gourd in the pumpkin patch. It's also the kind of place where tractor tires not only turn into swings for soaring on but are also piled up as mountains for youngsters to conquer. Nearby, a giant corn maze invites all to wander through its swaying stalks in search of the elusive exit and a haunted trail set on the burial site of a 19th-century judge frightens all those who dare enter with unpaid parking tickets.
