A happy surprise with this year’s Maze gives Burquenos their local fall tradition back
This summer, we all held our breath for what might have been the first year we don’t have a Maize Maze at RGCF. To our pleasant surprise, our first cut in the field yielded some quality maze pathways. We’re so impressed with how things look, we want to bring you our 2013 Maze for the rest of October! We plan on cutting into taller sections of the corn in the coming weeks, and expanding the Maze pathways throughout the field overall.

As we plan to cut more of the Maze, get ready for a pair of Home Run events this month and bring the whole family. As the second event in our Fall Festival series, this Saturday, we’re running our first-ever Farm 5K and the weather is going to be beautiful with fall sunshine and mild, runner-friendly temperatures. At the end of the month, we’re putting together a jam-packed day of pumpkin games and activities, sure to test your talents and Halloween spirit.
Make sure to come out for our Fall Festival events and experience the 2013 Maze, and stay tuned for updates about possibly expanded Maze hours this month.

It’s been a challenging, rewarding, and groundbreaking year at the farm, and we made it through to the Harvest Moon with a lot to look back on and look forward to. To top it all off, 2013′s Fall Festival and Mini Maze are going to be the most dynamic, exciting fall bash we’ve ever put on! To complement the Maize Maze (which we’re calling the Mini Maze this year due to drought conditions), we’re putting on a host of other exciting activities.
For more information, check our Maze page here, and prepare for the best Fall Festival Rio Grande Community Farm has ever seen!
