According to dairy owner Mark Cagle, the 50-acre corn maze will be located on part of a 241-acre site on Ga. 136, about three miles past New Echota on the Coosawattee River, that Cagles Dairy plans to buy from Charlie Ralston.
The maze will be open from Sept. 3 through Nov. 3, Cagle said during a meeting Monday with Gordon County Commissioners and representatives of the Gordon County Chamber of Commerce.
Last year, we had 45,000 visitors at our corn maze in Cherokee County, he said. We expect to see more than that in Gordon County, which is between Atlanta and Chattanooga. Cagle said last years corn maze on his farm near Canton was seven acres.
The 50-acre maze in Gordon County has already been planted, and Cagles Dairy plans to operate both corn mazes this year, he said.
This is a prime opportunity for you, said Alvin Long, County Commission chairman. There will be some natural tie in with New Echota and the Fort Wayne property off of 136.
