Homeschool Field Trip: DixieMaze Farms

Our field trip to DixieMaze Farms was both fun and educational. It's much more than a corn maze!

Homeschool Field Trip: DixieMaze Farms

Earlier this week we joined our homeschool group at DixieMaze Farms. It’s an annual field trip for our local homeschool support group, but this is the first year the girls and I have been able to go. It was worth the trip!

The main attraction at DixieMaze is the corn maze. It covers about eight acres and contains four to five miles of paths, according to their website. It took us just short of 30 minutes to complete the maze, which is a little less than the average time they recorded. We rocked it!

The owners of DixieMaze Farms gave us more to do than a corn maze, though. My kids also enjoyed the corn chute, barn swing, cow train, and the “jumpy thing.”

We also went on a hayride where we made butter and learned the difference between male and female pumpkin flowers, the importance of bees, and how to respond appropriately around bees and other stinging insects.

Our field trip to DixieMaze Farms was fun and educational. I hope we can make it an annual tradition for fall!
