We have been thinking about this year’s maze design. This past fall we purchased a cool 1957 Ford F100 to use for our farmer’s market truck… we were inspired. The design of the maze will be our truck in a pumpkin patch. Now we are just waiting for the corn to be planted in May, and then the work begins!
We are so excited for this year’s season and our Fall corn maze! We have partnered with some of our friends that are local businesses in Albion: Dickerson Music, Stirling Books and Brew, Homestead Savings Bank, Foundry Bakehouse and Deli and Pure Albion to be sponsors. Each company will have a dedicated weekend where you can come out and support these great, local Albion businesses. And the added bonus? Every Sunday will have a drawing for a $50 gift certificate for that local Albion Business or a business of their choosing!
We will be opening the weekend of October 1st. But to give you a little background on our partners this year:
Dickerson Music has been in Albion for over 60 years. They are a musical instrument store that carries a variety of new and used products; from band instruments and accessories to guitars, banjos, mandolins, and drums and their accessories. They do in house repairs on band instruments and stringed instruments. Lessons are available for guitar, bass, ukulele, and mandolin. They have one of the largest selections of sheet music available.
Homestead Savings Bank is a local financial intuition owned by its members with a local board of directors. It originated in 1889 and will be celebrating 133 years in business in 2022.
Stirling Books & Brew has new and used books, coffee and tea, and locally baked goods and gifts, all in a spacious English/Scottish cafe setting. They feature many events- such as live music, authors, trivia, and games!
Foundry Bakehouse & Deli is a place where simple combinations of fresh, high-quality ingredients produce the most delectable baked goods and deli offerings that we can offer our customers. Formed in Albion. Forged with love.
Pure Albion is your source for everything local. A variety of Albion and Albion College apparel, gifts and art by individuals with connections to Albion. They’re all about Albion!
A final supporter this year is #CasterCares. They manufacture greatness within their employees to positively impact their families, communities, and customers. Through their work with #CasterCares, they are building a better Albion through civic engagement and community development.
As you can see, we have some exciting times ahead of us! We will keep everyone posted on our progress this Spring and Summer!!
