Due to COVID-19, we will not be operating our “Corn Maze for a Cause” in 2020. This decision was made to keep your experience at the pumpkin patch “safe and simple.” We look forward to bringing back the corn maze and our other unique on-the-farm experiences like the petting zoo, face painting, and concessions in 2021.
Our 2019 Results
Our 2019 Corn Maze for a Cause was a great success! Thank you for participating and donating! Together, we were able to raise $6,690 for five causes:
Cleveland Clinic’s Endocrinology and Metabolism Institute – In 2016, three members of our immediate family were diagnosed with a rare genetic condition called Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN) 2A that causes thyroid cancer, parathyroid disease, and adrenal gland tumors. Since it is such a rare condition, we were blessed to find Dr. Eren Berber (Cleveland Clinic) who could provide ongoing treatment and care for Sam, Julie, and Bailey. As an endocrine surgeon at the #2 hospital in the United States, Dr. Berber uses amazing technologies in robotic endocrine surgery. We are grateful to live in a country where healthcare is accessible and where medical technology is always developing and improving. Select this cause and your corn maze admission will benefit Dr. Berber and his department at the Cleveland Clinic.
Good News for Appalachia: Home Repairs & Outreach to Children – Each summer teens and adults from Good News Presbyterian Church of Frederick serve widows and others in need in the heart of West Virginia’s coal country by repairing homes, building handicap ramps, and introducing children to Jesus Christ through a vacation Bible school. Good News Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, a Bible-based denomination founded in 1782. Their worship services are characterized by simple dignity, a focus on the majesty and greatness of God, and the careful exposition of God’s Word, the Bible. They meet for worship on Sundays, 10:30 a.m. at Tuscarora Elementary School, 6321 Lambert Drive, Frederick, MD 21703. They also offer Bible classes for all ages at 9:30 a.m. Select this cause and your corn maze admission goes directly to meeting the physical and spiritual needs of widows and children in Appalachia.

Judy Ramsburg Memorial Scholarship – Our family has set up a scholarship through the Community Foundation of Frederick County in memory of our beloved daughter, sister, and aunt–Judy Ramsburg. Judy brought joy to everyone she knew. She loved to laugh and spend time with her friends and family. It is our hope that this scholarship will bless others as Judy blessed our family. The fund will provide scholarships to residents of Frederick County who attend Frederick Community College. Select this cause and your corn maze admission goes directly to the scholarship fund.
Mary Hood (Thurmont Resident & New Mother Undergoing Treatment for Stage IV Breast Cancer) – Mary Hood is a dear friend of our family who is battling breast cancer. Select this cause and your corn maze admission goes directly to cover medical costs related to Mary’s ongoing treatment.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), MidAtlantic Women – Select this cause and your corn maze admission supports ministry to female athletes (ages 11-18) in the MidAtlantic area.
