Vandals wrecked a corn maze at a Plympton farm Tuesday night and tossed eggs at the farmstand, tractor, and delivery truck, the owners said this morning.
“We are beyond words, to come in the morning and see what we had to see,” said Lynn Reading, who has owned Billingsgate Farm with her husband, Peter, for 30 years. The pair has been working to restore agricultural tourism to the area.
Reading said it looks like the vandals cut down stalks of corn as well as barged through it. The Readings also discovered their farmstand had not only been egged but broken into, and found that valuable items had been stolen from the property.
The mess left by the egging required the Readings to clean up before going out for deliveries this morning, said Reading.
Plympton Police Chief Patrick Dillon said the department is still investigating.
“We would love to find whoever did it and put them to work. It’s no joke. It’s a lot of hard work,” Reading said.
The farm was planning on opening the maze on Sept. 15, as well as having hayrides and a pumpkin patch for visitors. “We will make it happen. We are very determined, hard-working people,” Reading said.
She asked that anyone with a tip contact Plympton police.
