“Going to the dogs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We went up to Rural Hill Farm for the sheepdog trials and dog festival. There were dogs everywhere. Tons of border collies were there either to participate in the herding trials or just to show support for the breed. Carolina dockdogs were there showing their amazing abilities, also. There were dogs doing agility runs. Then there were just the dogs attending. All kinds of dogs, large and small, all breeds were walking their masters and enjoying the festivities. We had a very enjoyable experience.

“Corn maze stinks”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

This Corn Maze is billed as being really cool and huge, it's a definite disappointment. The corn is not even high enough to hide the maze, so you can almost see through everything to the otherside of where you're trying to go. Also, the way the maze is set up is kind of ridiculous. They ask you to find these mailboxes throughout the maze so that you can take little stickers at each mailbox and add them to a map so once you have them all, it forms a large map of the whole maze. If you were to go through and find all of these it would probably take you 4 hours. Also, they blare music throughout the whole maze at all times. I wouldnt recommend this place.

“Great Corn Maize Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Challenging maze for all ages. Especially challenging at night. I recommend going with a group during the day and being prepared for at least 90 mins of trying to gather clues and make it out. They do a great job of keeping a rustic and country feel and offer refreshments and campfires for before and after your maze adventure. The offer good instructions and plenty of guidance if needed to navigate the maze. We will be back this year!

“Great family event place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

I have been here for easter egg hunts, the warrior dash, and the amazing maize maze. They do a great job setting up events and it's a great venue.

“Great maze!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

The corn maze is one of the biggest and most difficult around. We had a lot of fun with the family trying to get all of the cues and completing the puzzle to get us out of the maze.
