Don't settle for a cookie-cutter corn MAZE that only looks good from the air but leaves little to the imagination on the ground. Tom's Maze is grown from the ground up.
8 fun-filled acres of corn on the cob. It's more than just a regular Corn Maze. Solve the Puzzle and Escape the Maze!
This year’s maze is dedicated to Tom's father, Harold W Eby, a WWII Veteran and a Purple Heart recipient.
We honor Harold and thank him for his service in helping to keep our country safe and free!
Harold Eby was born November 27, 1914 in Trotwood Ohio. Harold was 29 years old, married and the father of two young boys, Terry and Tom (the maze guy) when he was drafted in 1944 to fight in WWII. He served in the United States Army,Co A, 406th Regiment, 102 Infantry Division, the "OZARKS".
His Unit was shipped to France, moved to Belgium and then across the German border o make an assault on the village of Geronsweiler. Harold was wounded in that battle and suffered the loss of his left eye. He spent many months in the hospital before he was returned home to his family in 1945. This is Harold's story about "My Longest Day".
If you just can't wait to visit the 2013 Maze, re-live the history that has become, Tom's Maze.
Have you even heard of a Punkin' Chunkin' Cannon? Well Tom's wife, Marie, is wishing Tom hadn't. It gets so noisy at the farm even the mice have taken to finding a new place to live. Tom even goes to firing this thing at night. After all that's the best time to hit one of those UFOs.
Have a look at at Tom's Special Pumpkin firing contraption in action! Tom fires his canon every hour (weather permitting) (even at night) (that's to many parenthesis, Tom) (no, it's not).
Tom prepares the cannon to scare away any extra-terrestrials. (if you've read the history of the maze, you'll know it's not just a fun and games.)
