The 2018 edition of the Pick'n Patch Maze spans more than 2 miles of twists, turns and dead-ends. We've partnered with FoodLink this year to bring awareness to this awesome organization! Foodlink is a community food resource center and the Feeding America food bank serving Allegany, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming, and Yates counties. They leverage the power of food to end hunger and build healthier communities. Foodlink mobilizes a diverse network of partners and stakeholders to eradicate both the symptoms and root causes of hunger via our food-banking operations, and through innovative food access and nutrition education programs. The Foodlink Community Kitchen prepares and delivers thousands of meals daily for Rochester children, supports our agricultural economy by slicing locally grown apples, and hosts a one-of-a-kind culinary training program. Learn more about how they are creating healthy futures for every community they serve at www.foodlinkny.org, or follow them on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram at @foodlinkny.With so many acres of corn planted in a mind-boggling design, the Wickham family is bringing the "MAIZE craze" back to the country. The Pick'n Patch has based its success on providing families and people of all ages a chance to make memories and savor time together - while experiencing the unique good farmin' fun in the A-Mazin' labyrinth. As Drew Wickham says..."The winners get to go home"
FRIDAY SEPT. 28 & FRIDAY OCT. 5 MOONLIGHT MAZE - for TWO nights this year our maze will be open after dark. Come navigate your way through the maze by moonlight. BYOF (bring your own flashlight) and come for a night of twists and turns under the cover of the stars. Last entry into the maze will be at 8:30pm. We will also be screening Hocus Pocus on Friday Sept. 28 and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown on Friday Oct. 5 - check out our Pick'n Patch Events page for more information.
Though the correct pathways can be walked in under 30 minutes, the most directionally-challenged visitors - adults and children alike - will require more than an hour to travel through the more than two miles of twists and turns and over 85 decision points. For that reason, last entry into the maze is 5 pm daily.
MAIZE-O-POLY IS BACK! Grab a game board on your way in and keep your eyes peeled for signs corresponding to squares on your board along the way. The more squares you find, the more money you earn! Earn enough to become "FARMER of the EAR". Be sure to check out our Facebook page for your photo if you do conquer this challenge!
INTERACTIVE PASSPORTS are available to help visitors work their way through the maze. Each contains ten questions that quiz the user on a chosen subjects, and those who answer the questions correctly will receive clues that guide them along the correct path to the exit. On weekends, there are "corn cops" positioned throughout the maze to help folks find their way through.
