Farmer finds way that is a-mazing keep farm

Carlisle’s option would be maybe unorthodox but, provided the charismatic farmer’s penchant for innovation, not impossible. He could be producing what he calls the entire world’s only cornfield puzzle.
“we simply began thinking, `Hey, here’s the way I’ll manage to keep the farm,’ ” Carlisle said. “It’ll be the farm that is only around here just how things are getting.”
All winter was spent by him researching labyrinths and drawing up plans for his puzzle before growing this spring. Now, corn in his 4-acre field is more than 6 feet high and Carlisle Gardens and Corn Maze Co. is almost prepared to open. After the puzzle closes later on this fall, Carlisle will harvest the corn and feed it to his pack goats.
But it’s not the corn itself that Carlisle figures to benefit many from. It is asking $5 for adults and $3 for children willing to try their hand at solving Carlisle’s puzzle which could conserve the farm.
Carlisle, 39, has worked the land on his American Fork farm for 17 years. Devamını Oku
