Kansas Corn Provides Educational Signs to Corn Mazes

Fall often means many family activities such as pumpkin patches, fall festivals and corn mazes. Many of these activities provide opportunities for consumers to connect with farmers. That’s why Kansas Corn provides signs for corn mazes across the state to share information about about corn and agriculture. This is the second year of the effort as corn mazes continue to grow in popularity in Kansas.

“Agriculture lends itself to lots of hands-on learning, it is great to see that corn maze owners had such a positive response to these informational signs,” says Sharon Thielen, director of education for Kansas Corn. “These signs allow corn maze owners to share information withS their customers about how corn is used and how they care about agriculture.”

Nancy Dailey of Dailey Farms Pumpkin Patch enjoys running their fall pumpkin patch. This year they have added a corn maze, and they hope this will be a big draw for customers. On their family farm they offer many different activities such as a trolley ride, sunflower patch, pumpkin patch picking, pumpkin tic-tac-toe, a s’mores pit, baked goods, and crafts.

“We are feeding the world, and nothing is more important to us then our ground, family, and the care of our crops and world,” says Nancy Dailey of Dailey Farms Pumpkin Patch. “The signs look so professional and I love the information. I want to be able to educate students that come to our corn maze more about farming and the uses of corn.”
