There is NOTHING like fall in Minnesota! Farmers are rushing to get crops out of the field. …or are they?!
The Spronk family has enjoyed sharing their field maze for 4 years now. Using production-grade agriculture software, Seth Spronk has refined the art of maze mapping. This year’s maze is in the shape of the state of Minnesota, complete with its 87 counties, covering 6 acres.
As published by the Pipestone County Star ~ The rural Edgerton land used for this project is owned by Seth’s uncle, Leon Spronk.
- This year it took 3.5 hours to cut the maze (down 70 percent since the first year).
- Inspiration for the project – Southwest Minnesota Christian School’s Pumpkin Festival planners posed the challenge. This will be their 8th year!
- The maze includes Minnesota trivia questions, pointing visitors to places (counties) within the maze.
