Local farm plans fall activities

White Pine Berry Farm, a family-owned produce farm in River Falls, is putting on a corn maze, pumpkin patch, and other attractions as part of their fall festivities. The small farm, which is less than nine miles from the UW-River Falls campus, has held a corn maze each fall for the last 10 years, and Andrew Zwald, the son of the farm’s owners, said it’s one of their most popular attractions. This year’s maze covers eighteen acres and features a number of intricate designs, including sunflowers, pumpkins, a coffee cup, and an outline of White Pine’s general store, where they sell jams, jellies, and homemade fudge.
