CORN MAZE CRAZE from Rich Addicks on Vimeo.

We’re celebrating the arrival of fall with a trip to the farm, where one family’s corn maze and pumpkin patch help make this season a prosperous one!

These days, life as an independent farmer isn’t always easy. Farmers like Stan Vaught have had to get creative in the face of unpredictable weather and regulations that increasingly favor larger farms.

Fortunately for Vaught and his sons, “agritainment” is becoming a popular pastime for families eager to unplug and spend time outdoors. Corn mazes and pumpkin patches have become fall-weather destinations for folks of all ages.

“I think a lot of people are looking for that simple thing in life,” says Vaught, who is both surprised and delighted at the growing popularity of agritainment.

Here’s to unplugging, supporting small farmers, and enjoying the simple things this season!
