The Plan

Kurt Suchomel, left, and Heather Potter, of Shoreham, try to plot their path from the top of a platform.

Hathaway Farm & Corn Maze had a “Man’s Best Friend Feature” this year. The 12-acre field of corn was cut into the shape of a large dog — and made fun for all ages. Irene Hathaway says ideas happen quickly, “And I decide,” but planning and scaling everything down can take months. Her work has been documented well over the years by a pilot who manages to photograph the finished concept every year. Hathaway does have a suggestion box for next year’s design. And for those who do not like being lost, the petting zoo and outdoor games are always a nice option.
