Either way you like it, the MAiZE in Verona, Mo may be just the place for you. Located roughly 30 minutes west of Springfield, it promises to provide family fun in more ways than one. Be sure to scroll all the way down the page to see info about the corn cannon, pumpkin chucking, hayrides, etc. that are offered at the site.
If you do decide to go check it out, keep in mind that $1 of every ticket in September is donated to the Ozarks Food Harvest.
