A Minnesota farmer is foregoing the corn and inviting visitors to test their wits in a 2-acre hemp maze.
Ted Galaty, owner and operator of Hemp Maze Minnesota at Willow's Keep Farm, situated just south of Zumbrota, says he wants to use the maze to educate the public about industrial hemp, which is distinct from its cousin, marijuana.
Galaty says industrial hemp is usually grown for its food, its fiber or it's grown for the medicinal side of it, not to get people high.
The maze was created in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.
Galaty says as far as he knows it's the only hemp maze in Minnesota and probably in the United States.
The maze is open from 11 am until 6:30 pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through October 30th.
