Along the west side of I-25 in Wellington, Colorado sits Harvest Farm known for its intricate corn mazes and how it helps people in the community get back on their feet who have fought addiction and homelessness. 

If you’ve never been through a legit corn maze. This corn maze is as legit as they come. Check out the video below: 

It took our family over an hour to get through this corn maze and I think from the aerial view above, you can see why!

The start of the corn maze.

In all the years of my life I have never been through a corn maze until now. It wasn’t exactly a bucket list thing, but I can now say I’ve been through one of the toughest mazes around. This is a maze that you won’t be able to get out of unless you have a map, or know someone with a map, or trust God to lead you in the right direction…literally! I suppose repeated trial and error could help you get out as well. 

Every corner or turn looked like the first one.

At any rate, Harvest Farm is a wonderful community presence not only for those who can afford tickets for their family but it’s also home to 72 men whom Harvest Farm helps through their rehabilitation program that helps end cycles of addiction and homelessness in Northern Colorado. Men in this program are given stability while the New Life program helps them become productive members of society. They help these men with resumes, and job experience by working on the farm. Harvest Farm works in conjunction with Denver and Fort Collins Rescue mission. To learn more about their work you can go to FortCollinsRescueMission.org.  What these programs do is help people through the love of God. 

Fort Collins and Denver Rescue Mission helps people with their “New Life Program”. Denver Rescue Mission’s New Life Program at Harvest Farm gives men seeking to change their lives the opportunity to become productive, self-sufficient members of society. The New Life Program is a long-term program offered free of charge to all participants. The New Life Program consists of:

  • Bible study
  • Counseling
  • Education and life skills
  • Work therapy

Leaving Harvest Farm. 
 

I loved visiting Harvest farm. I think we would have spent more time here if the corn maze hadn’t of taken so long to complete. By the time we were done with the maze, we were pretty tired and thirsty. But still, you could spend all day here doing something fun, from wagon rides to racing pigs, to shooting corn through cannons and buying kettle corn. It’s a wonderful experience for families!
