Wisconsin Farmer Carves Suicide Prevention Message into Corn Maze
Not only is this one of the largest corn mazes I've ever seen, it's also the first that addresses mental health.
Govin’s Meats & Berries farm in Menomonee, WI has had many corn mazes over the years. This year, the owners wanted to spark conversation about mental health, specifically suicide prevention.
The corn maze design features the National Suicide Hotline Number, which is 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
“Everybody is somebody’s most important person. If we can make a difference if we save a life this fall… that’s worth it.” (John Govin, Co-Owner of Govin’s Meats & Berries)
Govin's maze also has an area for younger kids that focuses on an anti-bullying message.
The drive to Menomonee, WI is just shy of 4 hours from Rockford, but what an incredible experience for corn maze fans.
