Brett Hood has been working on Jacob’s Farm for seven years. His favorite part about working on the farm is that he gets to interact with people from all walks of life and all ages. As a retired kindergarten teacher of 20 years he enjoys being able to create fun, interactive maze themes each year. Brett chose Michigan Shipwrecks as this year’s theme because he enjoys being able to educate others about interesting historical facts that come right from our Great Lakes. “There is so much history behind Michigan Shipwrecks and many shipwrecks are still being discovered, I knew it was the perfect theme idea.”

At Jacob’s Farm we spare nothing to assure that your experience will create lasting memories. We employ ten acres of farmland to create this experience and develop our plan using computer aided design technology and GPS to insure that everything is just right. Our maze design is changed each year and information contained within the maze reflects this design. Plan on being entertained for as long as two hours as you navigate the trails. This A-MAZE-ING adventure opens in late August and runs all the way through October.

General Admission $12.00
Children ages 5-11 $8.00
Under 4 Free
Groups of 20 or more $9.00 per person  (book in advance)
