How do they create them? (answer courtesy of Moulton Farm’s website)
The corn maze is planted around mid-June every year depending on the weather. It takes about 6 hours to plant.
The field is planted in both directions to create a grid.
An outline of the field is drawn on about 20 pieces of graph paper taped together. Each line on the graph paper represents 1 row of corn.
The maze is then designed by hand. This process alone takes one or two days and several erasers.

The State of New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration offers assistance to lessen the economic burden of the State Education Property Tax for eligible property owners.
An eligible applicant is a person who is:
• Single with adjusted gross income equal to or less than $20,000; or
• Married head of NH household with adjusted gross income less than or equal to $40,000; and
• Owns a homestead subject to the State Education Property Tax; and

For tax year 2014, all property values will be updated to market value as of April 1, 2014, as required by State law. With the real estate market declining over the past few years, most of you will see your property values decrease. However, because values decrease, it DOES NOT mean your property taxes will decrease.
