JFK cornfield portrait


Nov. 22 will mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, so in memory of the 35 th president of the United States, Sauchuk Farm has turned its 6-acre cornfield into a portrait of him. “This was an important event in our country and I’m sure that a lot of people will be talking about it,” said owner Scott Sauchuk. “Each year I try to think of something interesting, something significant. Last year we commemorated the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Girl Scouts, so the paths were cut in the shape of the Girl Scout symbol.” This year marks the seventh year the farm has created corn mazes for visitors. There is also a smaller, child-friendly maze called Spookley the Square Pumpkin that has an antibullying theme. Entrance to the mazes and other farm activities — including hayrides, pedal cars, and a ground-level giant jumping pillow – is $10.95. There is a $2 discount for seniors; children 2 years old and younger are free. For more information, visit
