Singer’s Face Carved Into East Texas Corn Field
It can't be easy carving a face into a corn field. How in the world do they do that? Walking through the maze, you probably can't tell all the paths are making a face or that you're walking through an eyeball, but from the air it looks pretty cool.
In Canton, a farm has carved country singer Neal McCoy's face into a corn field to raise money for charity. Neal is originally from Jacksonville, so it's a way to honor a celebrity that East Texas has churned out, while raising money for East Texas kids too.
The owners of Yesterland Farm in Canton carved Neil's likeness into the corn field to help the East Texas Angel Network, to help families with children who are sick, disabled, or hospitalized. There's a charity chuckwagon cookoff coming up Saturday, September 29 at the farm, and all proceeds from that will go to McCoy's East Texas Angel Network.
If you happen to be in a plane soon, fly over the farm and check it out. And if that's impossible, TV station KTRE captured some shots of the maze and you can check it out here.
Nice handi-work! Or should be say "tractor work."
