Get lost for a cause at Plasko's Farm Corn Maze
You can get lost at Plasko’s Farm in Trumbull ... for a good cause.
This year, each trip through the “Connecticut’s Corsair Corn Maze,” 670 Daniels Farm Road in Trumbull, will generate $1 for St. Vincent’s Swim Across the Sound.
Since the first corn maze in 2001, the Plasko’s have donated more than $90,000 to the Swim.
“We like what the Swim stands for,” said the farm’s owner, John Plasko. “We have had a lot of cancer in our family, and wanted to give something back. This is the Swims 27th anniversary, and we hope to have a record number of maze goers to benefit the Swim.
Last year, the maze attracted more than 5,000 visitors. The maze is cut into four acres of cornfields in 12 feet high corn by a maze designer from Iowa, using a GPS for navigation. After the maze is cut, workers clear the one and a half miles of paths and rope them off.
The object of the maze is to find six stations marked on your card, and located on posts, punch your card and then find the way out.
For those who get hopelessly lost, there will be “corn cops” on hand to help people locate the nearest exit.
The maze is open every day from 10 a.m. to dusk until Monday, Nov. 3.
Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for children under 13, under 3, free.
Schools, organizations and groups of 12 or more may book a time slot from Monday to Friday. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for rates and bookings, or for more information, call the Farm at 203-268-2716.
