It may not feel like Fall but that's not stopping Cleek Farms from helping people get into the autumn spirit. They have opened their farm for school groups to let them enjoy the fun and games or find their way out of the corn maze.

Cleek Farms owner Zane Vanover says this agritourism site gives the harvest season a new meaning. He also says that it can give his kids more options for future careers.

"We wondered a long time ago what was going to happen to the farm when I can't farm anymore, and that's something they can keep on doing if they want to continue in the agritourism avenue. They can do weddings, corn mazes and not have to sell the farm if they don't choose to," Vanover said.

The maze is open to the public this Saturday. This year the corn maze was designed around Kingsport's centennial.
