Agritourism Site makes list for second year in a row
BUFORD, Ga. – The Buford Corn Maze, a family-friendly agritourism site in southern Hall County, has been named one of the “Top 35 Corn Mazes in America” by Country Living magazine — for the second year in a row.
Buford Corn Maze was the only corn maze in Georgia to make the list, which was published this fall in the magazine’s online edition at CountryLiving.com. The magazine highlighted Buford Corn Maze’s family-friendly focus in describing its popularity with children.
“We are honored to receive this award for two years running now,” said Buford Corn Maze co-owner Rodney Miller. “It’s so rewarding because our team members work hard to create a fun experience for all ages.”
Miller said the 2019 season already has experienced record-breaking attendance with hopes to surpass 50,000 visitors for the first time in its 11-year history.
Co-owner Tina Beggs credits Buford Corn Maze’s expanded offerings for its success. “We are so much more than just a maze. We have hayrides, jumping pillows, a Haunted Forest, farm animals and other activities to educate young people about agriculture and farming,” she said. “This season, we enhanced our food offerings with a new concession building, and next season we will be introducing our Farm Experience Center.”
Open Labor Day weekend through mid-November each year, the Buford Corn Maze features a five-acre corn maze, haunted forest, hayrides, two popcorn jumping pillows, a farmer’s combine slide, animal viewing area, corn box, pumpkin patch, pony rides and an expanded Kid’s Corn-er play area featuring a mini-maze and playground. The Buford Corn Maze is also available for special private events.
Located off I-985/Exit 8 and just north of the Mall of Georgia, the Buford Corn Maze will remain open with expanded hours through Nov. 10. For a schedule and more information, visit www.BufordCornMaze.com.
