Agritourism Operation: Fox Squirrel Corn Maze

An experience for exploring, learning and enjoyment Family activities are essential to promote, foster, and strengthen effective bonds between parents and children. Also, they help the development of self-esteem, the release of stress and improve communication between family members.

A fun family activity in Hillsborough County is Fox Squirrel Corn Maze. Its prime location is just four minutes from Interstate 4. Fox Squirrel Corn Maze is an agritourism concept that provides a unique experience which you can enjoy in a family-friendly atmosphere.

Contact with nature provides an environment of learning, fun and physical activity for everyone. Start with a refreshing breeze and a tractor ride, pass the maze of sorghum, and then play some games and use the swings at the playground.

This agritourism activity allows children to learn principles of nature and interact with plants, animals, the environment and the family. These factors make Fox Squirrel Corn Maze a great option to spend a memorable day with the household.

We will be visiting Fox Corn Maze during the Florida Agritourism Conference which will be held on September 26 and 27, 2017, at UF/IFAS Polk County Extension Service at 1702 17 S., Bartow, FL 33831.
