John and Carol Hutton named their 78-acre farm Coppal House Farm for “coppal,” the Gaelic word for horse, because they knew they would always use Belgian Draft Horses in their farming efforts. They held their first corn maze in the fall of 2005, with only a table and an umbrella as a booth. Coppal House now boasts a diverse farm, a six-acre corn maze, and a sunflower festival.
