Teambuilding

Whether you are a small business, department or a large corporation, we have the perfect setting for fostering team spirit. Learning to work together in a group setting can be challenging, but we all bring to the table an array of personal strengths and weakness that when harnessed correctly can accomplish many feats – remember the “TEAM” concept of “Together Everyone Accomplishes More.”

The Amazing Maize Maze has a 17 year track record of providing a high level of corporate teambuilding success with the use of its trademarked Game Board puzzle in our 5 acre music filled corn field. Groups come back year after year to take on the new maze and new theme. We focus of having fun, relaxing in a country setting and communicating with each other to complete the maze challenge. We host Maze Teambuilding events on Tuesdays and Fridays in September and October. Prices begin at $15 per person with a minimum of 20 people.

The Ultimate Maze Experience

Available early August- early September.

Create an unsurpassed experience for your business family! This year you can reserve the maze exclusively for your group! Day and evening reservations available.

Perks of having the maze to yourself:

  • Bring your own custom playlist to have piped throughout the maze!
  • Create custom clues or tasks at each mailbox
  • Private “stalk talk”

Long Acre Bucks

Custom vouchers available in any amount that can be used anywhere on the farm just like cash! Schedule a day of fun for your business family then let them decide what they would like as their gift from you. Options include lunch from the grill, ice cream, pumpkins, the corn cannon, gemstone panning, and farm market items.

Socials & Picnics

Events can include Teambuilding, Full Farm Meal or Appetizers, Customer Appreciation, Employee Appreciation, Private Party Barn facility, speaker & meeting set-up, and indoor entertainment. Long Acre Farms is big enough and has a variety of activities to entertain guests of all ages, yet is small enough that you can still spend time together as a group.

Large Groups

Are you planning an event for a large group (400 people or more)? We can accommodate you! Contact us and we can provide you a quote for exclusive use to the Farm.

Wine Tasting Packages hosted by JD Wine Cellars

In 2009 we added a whole new layer of possibilities with the addition of JD Wine Cellars. Wine Tasting packages can be added to maze team-building or as an experience all their own. We can create a custom Wine Tasting package to fit your needs! Give us a call today for more information.
