Inspired by the all-new Ford F-150, Leaders Farms near Napoleon, Ohio, USA has made a seven-acre corn maze as a tribute to Ford’s latest half-ton pick-up truck – the toughest, smartest, most capable F-150 ever.

Leaders Farms has been entertaining mid-western families and local schools for 18 years with challenging corn mazes that can take up to an hour to complete – assuming visitors don’t get lost in the wheels.

“We are a multi-generation Ford-driving family,” said Kristin Leaders of Leaders Farms. “My husband Brad was reading a magazine last winter and saw the new F-150 design and loved it. We thought it would really stand out as the feature of this year’s corn maze.”

Planning, designing and growing the maze is a year-round activity. Producing the F-150 design required GPS technology to precisely cut the shape of the truck into the corn field.

There’s also Big Jack – a massive pumpkin cannon mounted to the chassis of a restored Ford F-450 Super Duty. Big Jack is powered by a 500-pound, 30-psi compressed air tank that’s capable of launching pumpkins almost half a mile.

Leaders Farms is also home to 13 goats and 40 cows, and to Scout, the barnyard dog.

The giant maze is expected to produce about 1,120 bushels of corn. After the maze is finished for the year, the corn will be harvested and fed to cattle raised on the property.
