A little bit of Olympic corn
English farmer Tom Robinson has turned a 15-acre corn field into a maze of springer Usain Bolt. Families, rabbits and would-be Olympians can try to find their way through the labrynth from now until harvest in September.
Robinson is no ordinary farmer. His National Forest Adventure Farm in the Midlands is, as the family told the British newspaper The Guardian in 2005, a way to actually make money farming. He's been carving a maze in one of his cornfields since then, using a theme that has something to do with current events.
And it makes the maize maze different every year, and a new challenge.
The Robinsons figure they can make more money running part of the farm as a theme park than they would ever get from the $1,000 worth of corn ripped up annually to make the maze.
