Farms are different things to different people.
Farms come in different sizes with different purposes. Originally the Dewberry Farm land was used for rice production. In 1996 Larry purchased the land for research. In 2002 the land became a place for agricultural entertainment and Dewberry Farm was started.
Dewberry Farm is our attempt to bring a taste of the farm of past, present, and future to the public of today. Since not everyone has a grandpa or favorite uncle to visit on the farm, we try to bring some of the experience to you. And you don’t even have to clean out the chicken house!
The founders of Dewberry Farm — Larry and Mary Emerson along with Dan and Myrtle Bradshaw, as well as previous generations have been involved in agriculture. At the end of 2012, Dan retired from Dewberry Farm.
Each year new activities or experiences are added to the farm, and, of course, a new maze theme is carved out of the eight acres of corn.
