  • Ann Arbor, MI (1888PressRelease) October 17, 2010 - October is the month for apple picking, pumpkin patches, haunted houses and winding through the trails of the world's largest corn maze. Third generation agricultural engineer, Lyle Jaworski and the Jaworski family have taken on the formidable task of creating the wold's largest corn maze. The world record corn maze is located in historic Dundee, MI, just off Highway 23 at exit 17 and is officially called Farmer J's Corn Maze. It is a labor of love for the Jaworski family. "This is our tenth year in the corn maze business," says Lyle Jaworski, who also runs the family farm full time, and raises pheasants at the Sexy Pheasant Farm and Hunting Preserve. However, Lyle becomes most excited when talking about the maze, "You get to experience something that not many people can do. Also, you get to test how aware you are of your surroundings along with your navigational skills as you work through the maze."

    This year's American theme of the world record corn maze has visitors searching for checkpoints throughout the maze where they can "check off" each accomplishment once found. Farmer J's boasts it is the World's Biggest Corn Maze as well as having the longest corn maze path, so finding all 24 checkpoints and still being able to get out of the maze is, well, amazing! Finding all the checkpoints can be particularly daunting inside any corn maze, let alone a world record corn maze. As visitors wander through various passages of the maze, they roam through the words, "We the People" and travel to the Statue of Liberty, the Liberty Bell and even see George Washington. "People who experience the world record corn maze get to learn what it's like to actually have to navigate through something that doesn't have roads or people to tell then where to go. They actually have to use their minds to get out," adds Lyle.

    Last month Farmer J's world record corn maze attempted to break a third world record for the maze. They hosted what they hope will turn out to be the Longest Torch (flashlight) Lit Parade within the maze. As if breaking three world records isn't enough, Farmer J's also hopes to break a charity record. Visitors to the World Record Corn Maze can benefit their own favorite charity and have fun at the same time. Farmer J's website (see below) has a downloadable sponsor form to use for this purpose. Visitors can sign up sponsors based on the number of checkpoints they are able to find while in the maze. Sponsors can promise a monetary donation per checkpoint found, and with 24 checkpoints in total individuals as well as groups can raise funds to help out others in need. Farmer J's just asks that visitors report back to them how much money was donated so they can keep a running total in their hopes to raise millions of dollars for local and national charities.

    Farmer J's is attempting to break four Guinness World Records this year at their world record corn maze. Turning their maze into a way to give back to the community while looking forward to a record-breaking season for their labor of love makes all the hard work worthwhile for the Jaworski's. The maze is open through November 1st in Dundee, MI, just off highway US-23 at exit 17. For more information about this record-breaking attempt visit
