What does it take to create a corn maze? One that’s able to amaze the thousands who visit it each year and also garners repeated accolades as the best in the country?
It’s all about family, said Jon Kenerson, operations director at Treworgy Family Orchards, developers of Maine’s longest continually-running corn maze, open each season from May to October.
Oh, and it also takes corn … lots of corn.
Now in its 23rd consecutive year of crafting mazes on the farm, located just west of Bangor, the Treworgy magic works because of the input and support of more than 18 family members and countless friends. It manifests the vision of farm owners Gary and Patty Treworgy, who came up with the idea to attempt planting their first corn maze in 2001 while they were on – not surprisingly – a family trip.
