Little Girl Running Through Maze Tip Tips for Tackling the Maze—with Kids!

While we get many adults, young couples and teenaged youth groups who travel through the maze, an overwhelming percentage of our guests are families with young kids! For many parents, the thought of tackling a 5-acre corn maze (with 2.5 miles of paths) seems difficult enough, let alone when you throw kids into the mix. Over the years, we’ve worked hard to make the maze a family-friendly attraction—and one that can be enjoyed by everyone, even parents with young kids.

Family fun for all!

Cherry Crest: “Then vs. Now”

Cherry Crest Adventure Farm Where Fun Grows Cherry Crest: “Then vs. Now”

When Jack and Donna Coleman first opened Cherry Crest Farm in August 1996, they had no idea what they were getting into. It started as an idea, a way to make some extra money on the side. It grew into a full-fledged, seasonal agri-tourism business that is still thriving today. Things sure have changed though—as with any business venture, you learn as you go. The Coleman’s and the staff of Cherry Crest strive to continually make the farm and the business better. Over the years, we’ve seen ideas and activities come and go; some have been seen through to completion and other got stuck at the drawing board. It’s always interesting to see where we’ve been—and compare it to where we are now!
