Corn Ships Ahoy corn maze at Treworgy Family Orchards

LEVANT — Treworgy Family Orchards has won Best Corn Maze in America in this year’s USA Today’s 10BEST Readers’ Choice Awards.

“The entire family was excited to be nominated and now we’re absolutely thrilled that this year’s maze has been voted the best in America,” said Matt Pellerin of Treworgy Family Orchards.

USA Today’s 10BEST local experts and editors selected their 20 best from the more than 500 corn mazes in America submitted to the contest. Voters then selected Treworgy Family Orchards’ “Corn Ships Ahoy” as the very best in the country.

The Treworgy family began selecting, planning, planting, and then cutting their four-acre cornfield into mazes in 2001. Past favorites include 2017’s Paul Bunyan, 2014’s Lost Locomotive, 2007’s Shear Sheep Madness, and the 2010 Rascally Rabbit.

“Generations of the family gather in the kitchen and we kick around ideas for what will be this year’s maze,” said Pellerin. “Each one must be part art, part agriculture, and part adventure. Corn Ship’s Ahoy has certainly achieved all of those goals.”

Treworgy’s award-winning corn maze remains open through the first weekend in November. Treworgy’s special Night Maze challenge invites visitors to bring flashlights and enter the maze on the evenings of Oct. 19, 20, 26 and 27.
