Situated between the hills and hollers of Lewisburg is the Hanna Farmstead, one of the Greenbrier Valley’s premier destinations for agriculture-enthusiasts. However, the farmstead is home to something else, as well. Behind the sunflowers and pumpkin patch; past the swing and the horseshoe pit lies the four-acre corn maze.
Now, if you enjoy simple mazes that you can decipher the solution to in no time at all, then the corn maze at the Hanna Farmstead is not for you. But on the other hand, if you like to be challenged, and I do mean really challenged, then you owe it to yourself to test your skills between the stalks.
“I tried to make it difficult, but not impossible,” Alex Hanna, designer of the maze, told The West Virginia Daily News. “I’ve had a few people tell me that there’s no exit to the maze. But, there is, I promise,” Hanna said through a sly smile. “You just have to find it.”
Speaking from personal experience, I can confirm that the maze is not easy. After spending 45-minutes lost and turned around, I managed to find myself right back where I started.
“I actually had a customer walk down the side of the corn field so they could actually see the way out,” said Hanna Farmstead’s Jade Napier. “They really didn’t believe there was an exit until they saw it with their own eyes.”
For those who may not be up to the challenge of solving the corn maze, there are plenty of other fun, seasonal activities, sure to bring a smile to your face. From wagon rides and rubber duck racing, to barrell cars and pumpkin-picking, the Hanna Farmstead offers something for everyone.
The Hanna Farmstead is located at 382 James Stuart Road in Lewisburg, West Virginia. The farmstead is open from 4 – 8 p.m. on Fridays, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
