Corn fields abound in Wisconsin which allows for some pretty elaborate and creative corn mazes. While we already compiled a list of Madison area farmers stands, corn mazes, pumpkin patches and more, we think these two mazes deserve a special shoutout.
Little John’s at Schuster’s Farm
Each year, Schuster’s Farm chooses a cause to support with its corn maze, with this year being a tribute to Little John’s. Little John’s is a community kitchen dedicated to transforming food excess into accessible, quality meals for people in need.”[Schuster’s] has been a great supporter of Little John’s since the beginning,” says Dave Heide, CEO and founder of Little John’s. “This year they picked us and we feel very blessed and honored about that.”
One dollar of each general admission ticket will be donated to Little John’s in its effort to establish its new facility at 5302 Verona Road, Fitchburg. The corn maze will also feature food access trivia.
“We really do still need the support of the community, and that’s one of the reasons we’re so excited about the help we’ve received in getting some of that visibility from Schuster’s,” says Heide. Right now, Little John’s is feeding people experiencing homelessness, Meals on Wheels for Dane County, three different schools, assisted living facilities, and nursing homes.”
If you cannot make it to Schuster’s this season, you can still support Little John’s fundraising efforts through its website.
Located at 1326 US-12 (Deerfield).

Kwik Trip at Feltz’s Dairy Store
Each year, Feltz’s Dairy Store in Stevens Point features various Wisconsin brands in its maze from Culver’s to Busch Light. This year’s corn maze is in collaboration with Kwik Trip. Feltz’s family-friendly maze includes a Kwik Trip building, pizza, bananas, burgers and the company’s classic line, “See you next time!” Spanning 12 acres, it takes about 40 minutes to complete.
The Kwik Trip maze is open now through Oct. 29 and features seven scavenger hunt locations with chances to win weekly prizes once you’ve completed the hunt, including a T-shirt featuring the Kwik Trip maze. Pumpkins and mums are also available, as well as a weekly tour of the dairy store and production facility at noon on Saturdays.
For those seeking out haunted October experiences, the maze transforms into the “Feltz’s Fear Farm” on select nights (Oct. 21, 22, 28 and 29). As the sky darkens, the corn field is taken over by “ghosts, ghouls, and goblins” at every turn.
Located at 5796 Porter Dr. (Stevens Point).
