The Futch Family is pleased to present the Seventh Annual Fox Squirrel Corn Maze beginning on Saturday, October 7. The Futch Family’s Single R Ranch is located at 3002 Charlie Taylor Rd. in historic Plant City. The country fun will take place through Sunday, October 29 on Saturdays and Sundays only from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Guests are asked to exit the ranch by 6 p.m.
This year’s maze is a labyrinth of twisted pathways that is truly spectacular and fun. There is approximately 1.5 miles of paths cut through five acres of corn stalks intended to challenge all who enter. In addition to the maze, there will be two giant slides and two “punkin’ slingshots” this year.
Janet Futch said, “The Fox Squirrel Corn Maze is home to one of the top five pumpkin patches named in the Tampa Bay area in 2014. We continue to have the most beautiful pumpkins around, making it the perfect backdrop for those priceless photo opportunities and for taking home one of the best pumpkins for decoration or carving.” Futch added, “You might even spot Sherman, one of the notorious fox squirrels that inhabit the ranch, to which the name of the maze is owed.”
A visit to the Single R Ranch is truly a unique experience. It is nice to get out into the country during Florida’s gloriously warm fall days and have some good old-fashioned fun. While there, walk through the maze, go on a tractor pulled hayride, pick out a great pumpkin and enjoy some good food. A stroll through the arts and crafts vendor area is lots of fun too.
Futch said, “So, if you are in the mood for a bit of problem solving or just want some good old fashion fun out in the country, the Futch Family’s Fox Squirrel Corn Maze is the place to be this October. Bring the whole family and enjoy Florida’s amazing fall weather.”
