About Us

Jeff Lenhart has been farming all of his life, raising cattle and farming cash crops. In 2007 the Lenhart family made their way into the agri-entertainment industry and opened the New Salem Corn Maze.

Jeff LenhartIn 11 years the operation has grown substantially and includes:

West Michigan's premier Haunted Woods with 20 themed attractions and approximately 80 actors each Friday and Saturday night in October.

15 acre haunted corn maze with attractions like "The Werewolf Tunnel" and the "Clown tunnel" and approximately 30 'cornstalkers' lurking in the corn!

Daytime activities including a family friendly corn maze, animals, train rides, pumpkin patch, cider and donuts, playground and more.

In 2010 "The Wurst Festival Ever" was started to kick off the Haunted season, family activities go on throughout the day as local bands perform on stage. A few years ago the festival was extedned to 3 days, and still is today!

Oh yeah...and Jeff Lenhart is a little nuts...!!



Daytime Activities

100% family friendly during the day, you will find no ghouls in this maze, we only allow them out after dark. Bring the family out to a relaxing and enjoyable daytime adventure.

Other Activities: Farm Animals (You'll love being down on the farm visiting all the animals), Pumpkin Patch (with over 5 acres to choose from you'll find the pefect pumpkin), Hay Rides All Aboard our luxurious farm wagon).

Witch's Woods

The witches, ghouls and mentally twisted have a special night in store for those brave enough to enter the Haunted Woods. You will find yourself clinging to the closest person next to you, we just hope it's not one of our patients that have escaped the mental ward.

Haunted Corn Maze

Enter the corn at your own risk. This night time adventure will take you on a wild ride of dead ends, twists & turns, confusion, mayhem and to top it off . . . you will be stalked and haunted by our devilish team of corn stalkers.

Do you think you can handle it? I guess we will have to wait and see.

Zombie Attack

Ready to save the world from a zombie outbreak? NO! Then you need to brush up on your shooting skills with our Paintball Zombie Shoot. We release zombies from their cages at dusk for the brave to take on!
