Minnesota’s largest corn maze donates portion of proceeds to military foundation

Now open for the season, the Twin Cities Harvest Festival and Maze will be donating a portion of every ticket sold to the Minnesota Military Family Foundation, which is a community-supported foundation that distributes money through grants and loans to Minnesota military families of deployed soldiers that need a little help.

To honor the military, the maze has been personally designed by Twin Cities Harvest Festival and Maze owner, Bert Bouwman.  The maze is also hosting a Military Appreciation Weekend on October 6 and October 7.  All active and former U.S. military personnel will get in FREE with their military I.D. cards.

“We are so proud and grateful for all they’ve done for our country,” said Bouwman.  “I wanted to show my support and honor those who have sacrificed to keep our country safe.”

Bouwman is passionate about giving back.  As an experienced farmer, he also grows pink pumpkins and will be donating a portion of every pink pumpkin sold to the Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation, a non-profit organization that funds money to breast cancer research.  The pink pumpkins will be sold at the maze as well as Fresh Seasons Market, Lunds and Byerly’s.

The Twin Cities Harvest Festival and Maze is Minnesota’s largest corn maze spanning 19.5 acres of land conveniently located on the southeast corner of Highway 169 and 109th Avenue in Brooklyn Park, Minn. The maze offers attractions such as hayrides, corn pit, pumpkin slinger, helicopter rides, petting zoo, live music and many more.

It will be open every weekend now through October 28 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and during MEA week on Oct. 18 – 19.
