A History of the Wayside Farm

The Wayside Farm is owned by Philip and Theresa Shenk and Mark and Beth Shenk. Philip and Mark are brothers who have owned the 120-acre family farm for quite some time. There’s a barn as well as a Victorian house. The brothers grew up on the farm raising and breeding cows. They also grew corn and other vegetables. In 2013, Philip and Mark teamed up with Tyler and Harried Wegmeyer to open the farm to the public, creating a fun place for the community in the process. Today, the farm is a pick-your-own strawberry and pumpkin farm. The fall season is especially great because they offer the famous farm maze! Below is a list of themes for the previous mazes at the farm:

  • 2018 Theme – Emojis
  • 2017 Theme – Gotta Catch Them All (Pokémon)
  • 2016 Theme – Kirk Cousins
  • 2015 Theme – American Heroes
  • 2014 Theme – Superheroes in the Corn
