The family have been here since October 1968 and today grow a range of crops including maris otter barley for a local maltings and fresh peas & beans for a local co-operative, supplying a Norfolk frozen food company. The farm also has several grass meadows which are grazed with Aberdeen Angus cattle in the summer.
With relatively small fields and many woods & hedges, there’s always a lot of wildlife around with deer, hares and a range of birds such as skylark, lapwing and finches to be found.
Looking to diversify into a new enterprise, the family initially set up a small maize maze in 2005 which has grown steadily to now cover over 12 acres of a field with a large play area and excellent catering facilities.
The Wizard Maze and Play first opened in the Summer of 2003 with a five acre maze in a 2 metre high corn field. Visitors were set the challenge of finding dragons teeth within the maze pathways.
