Kate and Hub Knott are the owners of The Corn Maze in The Plains in Northern Virginia. In 2000, they ventured off on their own and began the corn maze and growing vegetable/flower seeds organically. The maze began with the simple idea of creating a place on the farm, where people could come and enjoy the beautiful countryside and experience the fall. It has grown into a place where families and friends have come for years, turning it into their “tradition”. It has been our goal to create a non-commercial fall festival, where people can come to get healthy food, great farm products, see our farm animals, and have a memorable family experience. We kind of see life as a maze of choices that each one of us must navigate.
Kate is the “Corn Queen” who puts a lot of the beautiful and colorful touches you see around the farm. She has a deep love for the outdoors, raising her family, gardening, and keeping healthy.
Hub is “King Korn”, who does a lot of the hard work that needs to be done, keeps the crops growing, and makes repairs when they need repairing. He loves growing seeds, storage crops, and exploring the wild side of the woods.
Violet, born in 2006, is our KORN KID”, who simply likes to laugh and have fun. She tests the swings and slides to make sure they are at peak performance. Violet makes sure the animals are alive and well. You may find her working the snack shack and selling you kettle corn.
Phoebe Rose is our little “Kernal” born in 2011. She looks forward to the maze so much every year. She loves to play with all of our amazing visitors and gets great joy in tending to her piglets. She is always amazed that all these other kids come every maze weekend just to play with her. “Ah, the good life”.
