Agrotainment – or what you get when you cross carnival-like amusement with farming – is nothing new.
But a gigantic, 7-acre corn maze made in the likeness of the 2015 Ford F-150: that’s one we hadn’t heard before.
The Leaders family of Napoleon, Ohio builds an annual corn maze, and this year, Brad and Kristin Leaders settled on the new Ford F-150 as the basis for the design. After serving its entertainment duties, being navigated by children young and old from around the region, the maze will be harvested, producing an estimated 1,120 bushels of corn to feed Leaders Farms’ 40 cattle.
“We are a multi-generation Ford-driving family,” explained Kristin Leaders. “My husband Brad was reading a magazine last winter and saw the new F-150 design and loved it. We thought it would really stand out as the feature of this year’s corn maze.” In fact, Brad’s daily-driver happens to be none other than the Ford F-150, while Kristin drives a Ford Explorer.
Creating the 2015 Ford F-150 corn maze was no simple feat; the Leaders relied heavily upon GPS technology to precisely cut the design, after a year’s work spent simply planning and growing. Leaders Farms is located near the city of Napoleon in northwest Ohio, if you fancy seeing the monolithic maize 2015 Ford F-150 for yourself.
