With her wheelbarrow and trowel in hand, two year old Alina Maisie has been busy planting the seeds of summer at Willows Activity Farm.

Planted in time for the start of Willows Farm’s Summer Spectacular, Alina was helped by farmers Andrew and Anna to sow the maize seeds for their annual A-Maize-ing Maze feature.

Farmer Andrew said: “Our A-maize-ing Maze is a firm family favourite but this year we wanted to do something extra special. Parents often describe their children as ‘shooting up’ so we wanted to plot our maize maze’s growth against little Alina Maisie’s!”

Alina’s mum Katharina said: “We’ve been invited back to visit so Alina Maisie can track the maze’s progress – I can’t wait to see her face when she sees the maize seeds she planted towering over her!”

Visitors will be able to see Alina’s A-Maize-ing Maze and participate in a range of activities, including goat races and sport day events, at Willows Farm’s Summer Spectacular from July 19 to August 31.
