Thetandd.com: REEVESVILLE, S.C. – What’s two miles long, seven acres wide and tons of fun?

The Bowman Academy Corn Maze, of course, and all that fun gets under way today in Reevesville.

Bert Judy and Perry Chinners of J & C Farms found a way to create wholesome fun for the entire family, all while educating students and the public about South Carolina history and the agriculture industry.

“This is a family fun event sponsored by dedicated parents and teachers of Bowman Academy,” Judy said.

Allison Berry, past-chairperson of the school’s Parent Teacher Organization, suggested the corn maze idea in January, Judy said, and it wasn’t long before he and Chinners committed to designing, planting and creating the maze.

A paw, the symbol of the Bowman Academy Bulldogs, can clearly be seen in an aerial view of the maze, along with two state emblems: the palmetto tree and the crescent moon. Judy and Chinners, who have been farming together since 1989, created the design.

“I’m also a land surveyor and had the equipment available … pretty early in the game we figured we could do it ourselves,” Judy said.
