How did the 2012 corn maze design come about?
Acres and acres and rows and rows of endless corn stalks are awaiting you here at Cagle’s Family Farm in north Georgia. This marks the 12th year we have opened the farm to the public with fun farm activities. This year the maze will continue to provide fun, excitement and laughter to all that visit, but this year the maze design has a tender meaning.
When seeing the maze from the air, one of the feature cuts is the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children. This foundation and their work has a special place in the tender hearts of the Cagle family.
On opening weekend (August 31 – September 3), the farm is donating a portion of ticket proceeds to the foundation.
After being apart of one of the foundation’s efforts last year to make a little girl named Ana’s wish come true, the farm brought a petting zoo to her home, the Cagle family was eager to help again. “It was so touching to see what a few farm animals could do to brighten the day of a sweet little girl who was battling cancer, and what great work the foundation does with these kids. It also makes you realize how blessed we are with healthy kids.” says Ben Cagle, who operates the family farm.
“Then to have a local teenager, Joshua Pitner, who is a great kid that has worked here on the farm as a ‘Corn Cop’ for the last couple of years, now battling brain cancer really hit home. So we wanted to help.” explains Ben. Which is the reason we are hosting the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children on their opening weekend, and donating to their cause. “Joshua is the inspiration for this year’s maze design.”
