JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Now that fall is in the air, the folks at Seward Farms in northeast Jackson County near the Mississippi and Alabama line are hosting school field trips and family outings. You can watch an old fashioned pig race, get up close and personal with a farm animals and even take a hay ride.

This is a very special time of year at the farm. The Seward family invites visitors into a four acre corn maze. The Sewards created their first maze in 2002. Susan Seward says they change it every season.

"This year our design is a horse and a colt. It says, 'Born to ride at Seward Farms.' It's a new design. It would not be fun to have the same maze every year."

Susan says the mission is two fold. They serve up plenty of fun while educating people about the importance of farming.

"These kids need to learn the basics. Where do clothes come from? Or food? Milk does not come from Walmart. It comes from a cow. We want them to know how important farms are."

The main attraction is the maze. For the first time, this year Seward Farms will have the Fright Field on the October 19th, 20th, 26th, and 27th. Seward says some scary things will be in the special maze.

"You may pay to get in, but you'll pray to get out."

It's a great autumn adventure at Seward Farms. For more information, call (228) 641-3936 or visit http://www.sewardsfarm.com/.
