Fall is a busy time of year for agritourism operations all across America. When the air cools, people are looking for fun things to do with their families outside. Many farms around the country are cashing in on this annual quest for outdoor adventure. This week’s featured video was produced by CBS This Morning as Mark Strassmann shares the story of Richardson Adventure Farm in Spring Grove, Illinois that has the worlds largest corn maze.
