When the Budd family was looking at expanding their agri-tourism business, they wanted to make sure it would be available to everyone, including people with diverse mobility needs. Budhaven Farms now features a corn maze, farm animals, nature trails and more all made accessible in various ways, such as tie-downs on the wagons for wheelchairs or scooters, and wide, well-groomed paths through the maze. The Budds host various charity events at their facility, helping to raise significant funds for organzations such as 4-H and area hospitals. This all-accessible attraction now receives visitors from around the world.
