A southern New Jersey family farm is showing its devotion for Philadelphia through its corn maze.

Sahl’s Father Son Farm in Galloway has carved out a “Philly Special” for it’s 10th corn maze season in honor of the Philadelphia Eagles, the defending Super Bowl champions.

In a statement, farm owner Jeremy Sahl said the idea appeared right after the Eagles won the Super Bowl.

“We were hollering and hopping out of our chairs and jumping around when someone shouted something about putting the Eagles’ Super Bowl win into the corn maze this year. That was it,” he said. “I mean, it took some time to finalize the design process. But after corresponding with the Eagles for a while, this is what we ended up with. We’re really proud of it!”

Sahl says he’s divided the corn maze into three sections of varying difficulty to accommodate all ages. Guests can also enjoy pumping picking, hayrides, and more.

The corn maze opens on September 22 and continues through October 27. Visit the farm’s website for more information.

The family has been working the land since 1867, according to the farm’s Facebook page.
