A maze of maize

Maze of Maize

Sunrise is captured on a three and a half acre 'maze of maize' which has been created ready for a summer food festival to be held on the Waitrose farm in Hampshire.

Designed by Farming Manager, Andrew Ferguson, the maze took 40 hours to mow and is made of the 7 foot high crop, in the shape of a mushroom and a bottle of wine, two of the farm's main produce.  The drone photo was taken this week by the Assistant Greenkeeper at the Waitrose Farm, Paul Hewitt.

The Waitrose Farm on the Leckford Estate is home to a herd of 550 cows, apple and pear orchards, mushrooms, over 1,500 acres of wheat, barley and oats, oilseed rape and the supermarket's own vineyard, which produced its first grapes in 2011.  Waitrose will be holding their Summer Festival of food, drink and music on the farm from 18th-20th August, where visitors will also be able to learn about the 4,000-acre Leckford Estate.
