The home of the Treinen Farm Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch is a real 200-acre farm. It has been in the Treinen family for nearly a century. Alan is the eighth of ten children, and the third generation of Treinens to farm this land. He grows hay, soybeans, corn, and pumpkins. He cuts and tends our 15-acre corn maze, the largest in the Wisconsin. He breeds and trains the Belgian draft horses that pull our hay wagon. He maintains the farm and its equipment. He designs, builds, and maintains the all of the attractions that go along with our corn maze. He's a busy guy all year round.
Angie (Lathrop) Treinen is our corn maze designer. She handles the marketing, social media (see us on Facebook and Twitter) and day-to-day running of the business. She has several novels in the works (see her author blog, Rich Thicket of Reality.) In her spare time, she is a small animal veterinarian known as Angela Lathrop DVM.
Our extended family is an integral part of our farm. One of our goals is to keep the farm in the family and as an anchor for family and friends from near and far. Treinen siblings, in-laws, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews all pitch in during the busy fall season. (When we run out of family, we enlist neighbors, friends and acquaintances as well-if you can drive a tractor or make popcorn, call us...) Sons Thomas (age 17) and Patrick (age 13) help with the fall maze and pumpkin patch enterprise.
Our mission is to provide our guests a unique, entertaining way to connect with family, friends, and rural Wisconsin, and to provide a sustainable way of life for our farm family and local community.
