CANTON, Ga. -- The Cagle Family is opening its Family Fun Farm on August 31 in Canton, including a corn maze designed to raise awareness and funds for the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children.
Coming up on their 12th year to hold the corn maze for the public, the maze has a cut that can be seen from air that represents the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children, a spokesperson for the Cagle's Family Fun Farm said.
During its opening weekend, the farm will donate a portion of ticket proceeds to the foundation. Last year, the Cagle family helped a little girl named Anna as part of the foundation's efforts. They bought a petting zoo to Anna's home.
This year, the Cagles hope to a local teenager, Joshua Pitner who is battling brain cancer. Ben Cagle, operator of the family farm said Pitner worked on the Cagle farm as a "Corn Cop" for the last couple of years.
According to Cagle, Pitner is the reason why the farm is hosting the Brain Tumor for Children on opening weekend.
"Joshua is the inspiration for this year's maze design," Cagle said.
The family farm will be open during extended hours over their opening weekend, for Labor Day. They are open on Friday, 5-11 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. until 11 p.m., Sunday and Monday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
There will be about three miles that wind through the corn field, bonfires, a jumping pillow and gem mining.
