Maize Maze Fun For Everyone

Susan Steward said, "We decided this was something we could offer back as farmers to the community, to students and really people of all ages." The design is a definition of who they are.

"I guess cause we love horses. I've bought and sold horses for the last 12 years," said Steve Seward.

Brett Herbst, a national maze designer, created the racing horse maze. The family owns the only maze in South Mississippi, so they don't know what to expect.

Susan Seward jokes, "What happens if you get lost? Start yelling!"

It's supposed to take less than 30 minutes to get through the maze, but if you take a wrong turn like this, it could take more than an hour to find your way out.

"We do have passports that we're offering people to go through it. Different kinds of questions that's offered. We've got one for tiny tots that has Disney questions on it."

Susan Seward hopes the passports will prove to be both educational and helpful to get out of the maze. If it's too hot, families can find comfort inside the barn where they can learn all about Mississippi farming. The Mississippi Farm Bureau is offering a section at the maze where you can learn all about Mississippi Farming. This is the first year the Sewards have had a maze, and they don't know how the outcome will be.

Steve Seward said, "We don't know if we'll have five people or 500. But whoever comes, we'll be proud to have them and hope everyone has a good time."

Corn cob cannons, hay rides, and a no-left-turn maze are some other activities families can enjoy. The maze opens this Saturday from 9 am to 10 pm and will be open every day except Sundays through November 23.
