|Sunrise on the farm|
Mountain Meadow Farm and Craft Market has announced that the “Corn Acoustics!” Corn Maze is now opened for the fall season in Meadows of Dan, Virginia, celebrating nine years. This year's maze design is a different theme from the usual music ones in the past. Featured in the design is a fun farm scene with a barn and silo, a friendly cow and a happy pig jumping over a smaller pig. Sue Shelor came up with the concept “Sunrise on the Farm” and she enlisted the talent of Sarah Reyburn, a local Patrick County artist and farmer, to bring the idea to life.
“'Get Unplugged, Get Outdoors' is the theme for the Kids in Parks Track Trail,” commented Sue Shelor, owner of Mountain Meadow Farm and Craft Market, “and we decided that it was time for a farm design to highlight our continuing agricultural use of the family farm for providing fresh vegetables. We hope we're encouraging kids to get out and visit local farms to find out how their food is grown.”
The “Corn Acoustics!” Corn Maze is a featured site on the Kids in Parks Track Trail, an initiative created by the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation.
“I wish everyone a safe and happy fall season,” said Sue Shelor, “and we would love to see lots of kids coming out to enjoy our farm.”
The “Corn Acoustics!” Corn Maze is open weekends through September and October, from 10 AM to 5 PM, weather permitting. For weather information contact Sue Shelor at 276-952-5568.
