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.
In 7 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. In 2013 the festival was extended to a 3 day festival with 15 bands, car show, hot air balloons and tons of fun.
Oh yeah...and Jeff Lenhart is a little nuts...!!
