JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Hundreds of kids and adults from Mobile, Alabama are enjoying an old fashioned hay ride at Seward Farms in Jackson County, near the Alabama state line. They're also learning about life on a working farm in South Mississippi.

Susan Seward hosts field trips to the family farm. She wants people, especially kids, to appreciate America's rich agricultural heritage.

"They get educated about where clothing and food come from," Seward said. "I like to plant a seed of knowledge inside their brains and let them understand they are our future. You can't live without farms. One day they could be our voice in Washington and they need to realize without farmers, where would America be?"

Fall is in the air and that means Seward Farms has opened its "Corn Maize." Stalks of corn reach for the sun and visitors are invited to wander into the ten acre maze.

"You can run into dead ends, but inside the maze we offer signs and symbols where, if you are lost, you can get back on the right track," Seward said.

The maze is open through November 6th. People are invited to learn about agriculture and explore one of the area's most elaborate maize mazes at Seward Farms in Jackson County.
