Coming from Texas, I am used to seeing acre upon acre of various crop rows passing by the car window. But here in Florida you typically have to drive a little ways to get the same view. As we enjoy the cooler temperatures (relatively) there will be many fun outdoor activities to experience! One such activity, is the annual Corn Maze at the Long & Scott Farms in Zellwood.
Zellwood is a small farming community in Northern Orange county, between Apopka and Mount Dora. The Long & Scott Farm began as a 100 acre farm owned by Frank Scott, Jr. and Billy Long. They were originally farmers in Virginia and moved to Florida in 1963. While both Scott, Jr. and Long are both retired now, their family farming legacy is carried on by their children, who now manage over 1200 acres, growing Zellwood sweet corn, Kirby cucumbers, and cabbage.
Each year the Corn Maze gets a theme – and this year is no different. This year the farm is paying tribute to our men and women in armed forces. Opening on Saturday at 10AM, this annual event will stretch your mind muscles with it’s 7 acres of winding cornrows. They will also have hayrides available, a jumping pillow and much more. Tickets are $11 for adults and $9 for children 3-16. Children under 3 are free. The attraction is only open on weekends from now until December 13th.
This fun and interactive annual attraction is sure to keep you and your family entertained for hours! They say this weekend is supposed to be beautiful, so make your way to the Corn Maze at Long & Scott Farms and see how fast you can beat the maze.
