Stratham NH Scamman Farm ending corn maze, marketplace

STRATHAM — Scamman Farm’s agritourism business, which includes its popular corn maze, will not be returning this fall, as owners Kirk Scamman and Sue Fernholz are planning to retire.

Scamman said fall 2021 saw an “excellent season” for the business run by Scamman and Fernholz at the farm on Route 108, even in the wake of a devastating fire in May that claimed their historic barn, 300 chickens and other properties on the farm.

However, Scamman said “issues” related to land have created uncertainty for him and Fernholz, declining to elaborate further. They have run the agritourism business for 14 years, the farmland itself owned by Scamman’s parents Doug and Stella.

“The future of the business, as well as the location of the maze, was too unknown for us to be our lives on,” Kirk Scamman said. He said he had “no concept” of the future of the property, adding, “We decided we needed to take care of ourselves.”
