I guess you know you've really "made it" when your likeness is made in to a corn maze.  Or so it seems in Shelby, North Carolina, home to the Shelby Corn Maze. Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, and Alan Jackson have all been mowed into the Southern Tourist attraction.  The latest honoree is 'Dancing With The Stars' favorite, Kellie Pickler.

The truth is, corn mazes are popular all over. Even the Southern Tier has some a-mazing fun, especially this time of the year.  Stoughton Farm, located at 10898 State Route 38 in Newark Valley, is a popular one.  In it's 9th year, the 2013 maze officially opened last weekend.

If you're looking for pumpkin patches and other Fall family adventures and Fall photo opps, some popular choices include: Country Wagon Produce, 2859 Route 26, Maine, NY, Jackson's Pumpkin Farm, 6425 State Route 17C outside of Endicott, Iron Kettle Farm, Rt. 96 in Candor, and U-pick pumpkins at North Windsor Berries, 1609 NY Rt. 79 in North Windsor.

Fall could very well be a short season in the Southern Tier.  And according to the ever-popular Farmer's Almanac, it could very well be a reality.  Enjoy the outdoors and take in the beauty of the season.
