Treworgy Family Orchards in Levant has been named “Best Corn Maze in America” in this year’s USA Today 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards with its "Corn Ships Ahoy" design.

Treworgy Family Orchards in Levant has been named "Best Corn Maze in America" in this year's USA Today 10 Best Readers' Choice Awards.

The 42-acre family orchard and farm is owned by Gary and Patty Treworgy, who purchased the property in Levant in 1983 with the vision of creating a place where other families can join the experience of a family farm. Today it welcomes thousands of families every year to pick apples and pumpkins, pet and feed livestock and enjoy delicious ice cream.

USA Today's 10 Best local experts and editors selected their 20 best corn mazes from the more than 500 corn mazes in America. Voters then selected Treworgy Family Orchards "Corn Ships Ahoy" as the very best in the country.

The Treworgy family began selecting, planning, planting and then cutting their four-acre cornfield into mazes in 2001. Previous years' designs include 2017's Paul Bunyan, 2014's Lost Locomotive, 2007's Shear Sheep Madness and the 2010 Rascally Rabbit.

"The entire family was excited to be nominated and now we're absolutely thrilled that this year's maze has been voted the best in America," said Matt Pellerin of Treworgy Family Orchards. "Generations of the family gather in the kitchen and we kick around ideas for what will be this year's maze. Each one must be part art, part agriculture, and part adventure. Corn Ship's Ahoy has certainly achieved all of those goals."

Treworgy's award-winning corn maze remains open through the first weekend in November. Its special "night maze" invites visitors to bring flashlights and enter the maze on this evening and the evenings of Oct. 20, 26 and 27.
