Treinen Farm Mazes
Part work of art, part outdoor game, part social experiment, Treinen Farm’s unique mazes are worth a visit.

Making a Treinen Maze
Designed and created entirely by the Treinens
Angie Treinen spends months collecting ideas and sketching out designs, and then once she settles on a theme she can begin the graphic design process. In early June, Alan Treinen plants the corn in a grid pattern, and then he leads a crew to cut the design into the field by hand. It’s all done before the corn is about a foot tall.
How to conquer the maze
It’s not all about wandering: we give you a mission when you start the maze, and then add levels of challenge. Depending on your group’s abilities and desires, the main maze experience can be anywhere from 45 minutes to several hours. And did we mention that there are prizes?

Corvids Not Covid
When we started thinking about designing the corn maze, a lot of people said “hey, what about a coronavirus?” Which we’re sure would have made a delightfully complicated maze, but we figured we’ve got coronavirus on our minds all the time–maybe an afternoon at the Treinen Farm could be a virus-free zone (literally as well as figuratively, we hope.) However, we couldn’t quite resist the temptation to add the crow for our small maze. Crows and ravens are corvids (in the family Corvidae) and they’re super-smart, interesting birds. So, we’ll take a corvid over a covid any day…
Treinen Farm voted one of the ten best corn mazes in the U.S. “Each autumn farms across the United States transform their corn fields into interactive mazes, perfect for a fall family outing. There are more than 500 of these mazes across the nation, but 10Best voted it down to 10 of the most exemplary, both for the quality of the maze itself and for the wealth of other activities on offer.”
