LONDON BRITAIN -- Neighbors along Flint Hill Road have joined to bring the public some pretty good times during the autumn months.

The Schmidt Tree Farm, the folks with the two reindeer and acres of Christmas trees, have formed a partnership with next door neighbors Paradocx Vineyard for the months of September and October to offer a corn maze, wine tastings, corn shooting, pumpkin picking and pedal car riding during the weekends.

This past Saturday was the first day of the events that will continue until Oct. 28, with Halloween weekend being the height of the fun.

Just about a mile down Flint Hill Road from Route 841, visitors are invited to drop by at the site of the Paradocx Vineyard from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays to take a walk in the seven acres of corn or try shooting ears of corn into a target. Parents can also drop into the vineyard barn to sample glasses of wine for $7 each.

On select weekends, guests can enjoy live music and grilled food. On Oct. 20, Paradocx will host its fourth annual Community Day, bringing in artists and food vendors.

Joan Schmidt, who owns the tree farm with her husband, Ellis, said this is a somewhat relaxing time of the year for them. Things really get hectic around Thanksgiving, when they begin to sell trees and put their reindeer, Nordy and Noble, on display next door at the farm.

Paradocx Vineyard is at 1833 Flint Hill Road in Landenberg. Admission to the corn maze and associated activities is $12. Children 3 and under get in free.
