Re: Hickory King field corn

Nice video Dave. Thanks for the invitation. If I was closer I would take you up on it. Enjoy the corn, and make some money too.

Re: Hickory King field corn

This was one of the best growing years we've had around here in a while. We had the wettest July on modern record and for the year we're nearly 3 inches above avg.
I built up some future customers and enjoyed some fresh corn myself. I cut most of the paths through earlier than normal which made harvesting easier and we've been enjoying the walks through it. My dog especially likes to flush the rabbits and other critters out.
In what has become part of celebration of the harvest and Halloween, I shut down the maze during the last 2 weeks of Oct and set it up as a haunted maze the last Sat before Halloween. It's amazing how all those brave younguns that walked the corn without fear during the day get so scared when they're challenged to do it that night. We adults have as much fun as the kids do.
Anyways yesterday I made a video of a walk through after we setup some of the haunts. They called for rain and some rain is still forecast before Sat so everything isn't set out yet.
The narration is alittle cheesy but what the hey, it's an amateur production LOL.

Re: Hickory King field corn

I'll bet you're having fun with that maze, Dave. Around here, they have huge mazes that you can really get lost in, and they hire lots of teens to dress up and chase people around with fake axes, knives and other weapons. They actually overdue it to the point where you just want to get out of there.

Re: Hickory King field corn

The haunted corn maze was another success. Those that went through called it the best yet. The Corn Monster's presence once again spooked the weary who happened along his path.
