Schuylerville cornucopia corridor welcomes fall

SCHUYLERVILLE – The 50th anniversary of both the moon landing and Woodstock is etched in people's memories and now etched in a corn field, too.

In 2001, the Macica family converted its dairy farm into a multi-purpose field for its 20 acres it has off Route 29. Each year they come up with new attractions for fall fun seekers. This year, the seven-acre corn field is a tribute to the Apollo 11 mission to the moon and the concertgoers at Yasgur's Farm.


"We want you to get lost," said Ken Macica. "Of course, we want to find you, too."

Just up the road is the Farmer's Daughters' Drive-In which was founded in 1969 and in between is Olde Saratoga Home & Garden, run by Wayne and Cookie Bakken, who have a windmill, two solar panels and a pair of bee hives where they make their own honey.
"We keep our honey at hive temperature so when you dispense honey for Santa Claus it's at the same temperature as the hive," said Wayne Bakken. "Very tasty."

From garden centers to apple orchards to ice cream places that will stay open through Halloween. In October, the Schuyler Farms corn maze converts to a haunted maze, not for the faint of heart.

"This is our time, our time," said Macica.
