Meet the farmers (and their silent partner) with the largest corn maze in the world

Dixon, CA—The Cooley brothers are celebrating the ten-year anniversary of their corn maze, which still holds the record in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest corn maze in the world. In 2007, the maze wound through 40 acres of late-season corn stalks. This year it stretches to 50 acres.

Here is this year's corn maze. Those blue and red rectangles are semi trucks!
The anniversary is an emotional time for the brothers, who are also marking the ten-year anniversary of their father's death. "My dad would be so proud of us, the town, and the county," says Matt Cooley. "He lived to be a farmer."
