Ninth Annual Dairy View Country Maze Delights Visitors

Each year, the Schopf family invests their time and creative energy in the development of a corn maze that spans 30 acres of their Dairy View Farm in Carlsville. Working with Great Adventure Corn Mazes (GACM), they work to produce a unique design for the maze that changes annually. In the spring, GACM brings in a computerized corn cutting machine to carve out the maze in detail. This year’s maze, entitled “Cookie’s Race,” is now open for touring.

“Cookie’s Race” depicts the three Schopf children – Robin, Robbie, and Ryan – who have now grown into young adults. Robin, a senior at Sevastopol High School is seen on horseback, getting set to race with Robbie on a tractor. Ryan, now a 3rd grade teacher at Luxemburg-Casco is depicted as their coach. Cookie the Cow holds the starting flag and a variety of farm animals are featured in the grandstand. All of this is based on real life on the farm. Robbie, a Fox Valley Tech grad has returned to farm work with mom and dad, Dennis and Roxanne. The animals depicted in the maze represent new additions to the Dairy View public menagerie, including miniature horses, goats, calves and bunnies.

There are 18 punch card stations and six additional puzzle stations to find in the maze. Solve the Maze Sudoku and register in GACM’s “Win a Wii” Contest. The Schopf’s are also raffling off an iPod at the end of this year’s Corn Maze season, with all local maze attendees eligible to win.

Admission into the Corn Maze is $7 for adults, $5 for children ages 6-12, and free for children age five and under. Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear substantial footwear. Visitors can expect to spend approximately two hours in the maze. In addition to the Corn Maze, visitors are also welcome to take a dairy tour or arrange a pumpkin patch hayride.
