Govin’s a-maize-ing attractions

Ryan Curtis-

Govin’s Farm has a corn maze that can be fun for the whole family. Choose from a variety of themed “passports” to assist you as you journey through the maize. Enter at night with only a flashlight for an increase in difficulty and adrenaline.

The Govin’s Farm corn maze is part of the Culver’s “Thank You Farmers” program. The program is aimed towards thanking American farmers and raising money to support agricultural education programs.


As part of the “Thank You Farmers” program, the corn maze is in the pattern of the Culver’s logo. This unique pattern helps to add confusing twists and turns for visitors. The “passports” provide minor assistance with travel through the maze, but they do not dictate every turn.

To make the maze more challenging, guests will attempt to go through without a flashlight once night hits.

Govin’s Farm has over 20 attractions for visitors of all ages. Mini golf, pumpkin cannons and the maze itself are just a few of the most popular attractions. One of the newer and surprisingly popular attractions is a game that many people played during their youth: tetherball.

 

Many of the attractions are homemade. Several large Jenga towers made from 2×4 blocks are set up around the farm. Two “giant hamster wheels” are secured to long tracks. A large pile of climbable hay bales sit near the corn maze.

Govin’s Farm is also known as Govin’s Meats and Berries. They sell pasture-raised meats that are free of hormones and antibiotics. During strawberry season, visitors can buy picked strawberries or pick their own. Pumpkins are available to pick in the fall.

The weekend of Oct. 28 is the last weekend Govin’s Farm is open. “It’s a great place to come on a Friday or Saturday night,” said owner John Govin. “Everything is included with the admission price, except for the pumpkin cannon and apple guns.”
