Each year the family-run Stoughton Farm creates a large walk-through corn crop “Maize” to entice visitors to their roadside farm market located in Newark Valley, New York.
Stoughton Farm Crop Maizes
Owned by Tim and Deb Stoughton, Stoughton Farm grows and sells 10 greenhouses of annuals and perennials, gardening tools and more. Each year they design a different crop maze, without the help of aliens, for visitors to walk through from September through October. 2016 will be Stoughton’s 12th season creating the area’s original large scale corn “MAiZE” which is said to draws 10,000 visitors per year.
They have been getting a lot of press this year because the nearly eight-acre maze features images from the popular Mario Bros video games. Mario, Luigi, Princess, Toad and Yoshi, are all instantly recognizable characters viewed from above:
