STILL FAMILY FARM DEBUTS
ZINNIA FLOWER MAZE AT ITS FALL ATTRACTION
POWDER SPRINGS (Monday, August 19, 2019) – Still Family Farm has revealed a five-acre zinnia flower maze to accompany its annual fall event that is designed to encourage families to venture outside and create memories together. The field contains millions of zinnias in a variety of colors, heights and sizes. The zinnias have a maze cut into the field so that guests can meander through the flowers and experience something unique to Metro Atlanta. They are expected to bloom until the first frost, which is typically in November.
Leslie Still Oubre, President of Still Family Farm said, “We can’t wait to see the reactions of our returning guests, as well as those of new folks who are willing to try something a little different than the traditional corn maze. We love that families come here to take a hayride and choose a pumpkin while making unforgettable memories and capturing Instagram-worthy photos, and this huge zinnia field is something colorful and unique. The fact that we’re 30 minutes from Atlanta makes it even better.”
Oubre goes on to add, “Visiting an area corn maze in the fall has become a family favorite, so this is a bit of a gamble for us as a fall attraction. But as we looked for the best crop to plant for rotation – this is our seventh year of mazes - zinnias just blossomed with potential. They are gorgeous to look at, great for our soil, and beneficial for our honeybees, hummingbirds, butterflies and other pollinators. Planting zinnias was a win-win-win.”
The Farm opens its gates to the public September 21, 2019 for its annual fall event and is open weekends until October 27, 2019. During that time, guests will be allowed to cut flowers from the field, as well as other fall attractions like choosing pumpkins from a patch, sliding down a double-barreled slide on top of a massive hay climb, and relax on a 24-minute narrated hayride where they’ll learn about the nine-generation history of the Farm. On site is also a collection from the Farm’s vintage tractors, including the very first tractor bought to farm the land, and a 1951 Ford 8N painted pink to honor a beloved family member who battled breast cancer.
The nearly 150 acres of land upon which Still Family Farm operates has been in the same family since 1837. Still Family Farm was established to present opportunities for local residents to create lasting memories by connecting them to each other through the surroundings, the land, and the area’s history.
