“Our corn maze that features Spookley the Square Pumpkin is so much fun for families. While they enjoy finding their way through the maze, families can talk about bullying and how to prevent it,” states Bev Baedke, Owner of The Community Orchard.

October is National Bully Prevention Month and the story of Spookley presents the perfect opportunity for families to talk about bully prevention while they enjoy exploring the corn maze. Spookley the Square Pumpkin Corn Maze is open from 10 am to 6 pm all week long.
