The Midwest's original corn maze with a fun new theme and family activities every year.
Our family farm was settled in 1890 with Sever Peterson the first & is still in operation by Sever Peterson III, his wife, Sharon, & the fourth generation.
Sever & Sharon Peterson first had the idea of a corn maze in 1997 after hearing about the hedge mazes of Europe from one of their agricultural exchange students from England. We are the second oldest corn maze in the United States & the oldest in the Midwest. The first began in 1996 in Pennsylvania & still operates.
We still cut our maze each season by hand & do not use GPS in order to ensure an accurate & clear design. Each year, we strive to add new activities & entertainment to our fall festival, hoping to make it a fall tradition for everyone to enjoy!
The fourth generation plans to continue both the traditional farming operation & Sever’s Fall Festival well into the future & we sincerely appreciate your patronage!
