It’s the time for fall traditions. For some that means carving pumpkins or looking at the changing leaves, but for one local family this time of year is all about getting others lost.
“We’re down here everyday and everything that happens here is run by us," Jennifer Studt, with Studt’s Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze, said.
Sunday was the day for the finishing touches to Studt's Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze, a family run business that Jennifer married into.
"I met my husband working for him. This is his family's farm,” Jennifer explained. “He took over about eight years ago. My husband and I do this together now and then we've got the little one."
The Studts farm for a living and plan all year to get ready for October.
They say it's a fun break from the usual work.
"We start with an idea," Jennifer said.
Each corn maze the Studts create is different, an intricate piece of art that's best seen from the air.
"I usually draw five to ten different drawings and then my husband's parents, him, and all the friends and family look over them,” Jennifer said. “This year it’s an eagle, a screaming eagle."
The design is put into a GPS system that tells the Studts exactly where to cut the corn to make the maze. They do that in the spring when the plants are still small.
"It’s always scary until you go up and look out of that plane. It’s extremely satisfying,” Jennifer said. "We want to see families come out and enjoy it and love it as much as we enjoy it enjoy coming out as a family to do it."
