Each year SonHarvest Seasons plans and cuts a special design into the corn maze. The first year two teenage boys, Zak and Luke Wiebe, cut the corn maze into the shape of a pirate ship. Amazingly, they did it with a machete. The maze that year was six acres. In following years, the Peils used walkie-talkies and stood on top of their large truck and later, the top of their house to direct Brian in the field as he cut the design into the maze. Today, all the family members and many friends ponder each year’s design until one idea is accepted. Usually Kim draws the design on paper and figures the maze. It must be challenging but not difficult. Brian then cuts the design into the corn when it is about six inches tall. It is always a joy when the design is cut in and the first customers experience the fun.
