Thanks to everyone’s entry fee to our farm’s 2016 corn maze and the sale of the grain corn in the maze $5,800 will be donated to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Special thanks to Burkholder Farms for harvesting the corn and Reesor Elevators for trucking and drying the corn at no charge. Thanks to Grahame, pictured above on the left, for designing and cutting the maze.

Having fun and raising money at the same time is a great combination! Thanks to everyone who ventured into our farm’s corn maze this year. You helped raise $2,148 for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank for international aid.  Thanks also to Burkholder Farms who harvested the feed corn for free, so that an additional $650 was raised from the sale of the corn itself.

Thanks to our corn maze explorers for donating to Stouffville Food Bank

This past fall at our farm corn maze we gathered the entrance fee and accepted donations from customers to give to the Whitchurch-Stouffville Food Bank. This month I was very happy to present Board member Charlotte Chesham with a cheque for $1147.75 on behalf of our customers at Reesor’s Farm Market.

Recently we harvested 8,000 lbs of corn from the maze (grain corn, not sweet corn in case you’re wondering) and we’ll be donating the proceeds from the sale of the corn to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. CFGB is a great organization that works in the developing world helping people grow more food to better feed their families and providing food in times of crisis for hungry people.

On behalf of my family and all of the staff at Reesor’s, I wish you a very happy Christmas and holiday season and I hope for all good things for you and your family in 2015.
