Come check out our A-MAZING corn maze! Rader Family Farms is proud to partner with DiPel and celebrating their 50 Year Anniversary along with Beck's Hybrids and Precision Planting in 2022 to design and grow another challenging, interactive, and fun 10-acre corn maze.
Beck's Hybrids is the largest family-owned retail seed company in the United States. More importantly, Beck's is committed to honor God by maintaining their relationships with integrity and honesty in all they do.
We planted Beck's Hybrids seed corn in early June using GPS technology of our partner, Precision Planting, that allows seeds to be planted within half an inch of the exact spot where we want them. The planter crosses the field a second time so the maze is more dense than a typical corn field. After planting, we add three bridges that allow you to climb and adjust your internal GPS or just enjoy a spectacular view of the maze and grounds.
Though it's a large maze, don't worry, we take down your name and will notify the "corn cops" and "maze runners" if you're not out by closing time. :) You can choose one or both phases of the maze to complete using the provided map and based upon the challenge you desire. It typically takes people about 20 minutes to complete Phase 1 and about 40 minutes to complete Phase 2, but take time to enjoy the fall experience! There are multiple checkpoints throughout the maze as well as the bridges that will help you get your bearings. Each Phase has checkpoints to find. The last entrance to the maze is one hour before closing each day. That is, the last maze entry is at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday and 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
What better way to enjoy our wide open space than to plan a night out at Rader Family Farms for our Night Maze!

Mazes of the past
Check out how our maze has changed over the years. We strive to keep our tillable ground healthy and producing at peak yields and that requires crop rotation. That can be challenging when the maze acres are surrounded by the other parts of the farm.
