Corporate Events

Mazes are being used for corporate team building groups and corporate parties of all sizes.  Our maze is a great venue for professional facilitators to use to create their own activities and events. Our farm location makes a great corporate party location. You can design your own activities or choose to work with one of our farm staff to create a team building event for you.

For very reasonable rates your company can create a company picnic, smores campfire, hayride and maze extravaganza that will activate more interest than any other company function.

Attendance is high because employees can bring their families and feel comfortable in the relaxed farm atmosphere. Nelson’s Pumpkin Patch Corn Maze is open 7 days a week.
