South Brunswick's Country Farm opens soon with new attraction

With fall quickly approaching, it's the time of the year when VonThun's Country Farm in South Brunswick opens its 2015 Corn Maze.

This year it's a tribute to local "American Idol" contestant JAX, where she finished in 3rd place.

JAX said when she first heard the news, she thought it was a joke.

"I was like, 'This is photoshopped,'" she said, "This is not real and someone had to show me it was bird's-eye view and I was like wow, someone cares about my face that much, that's very strange and awesome.”

In the beginning of the maze there’s even a JAX shrine, where there’s little open shed with all pictures of JAX and her journey on American Idol.

But that’s not all. There are also facts and fun things about JAX throughout the entire maze.

VonThun's opened the maze early so Chasing News could race JAX through her head!

JAX will be at the farm when the corn maze officially opens on Sept. 19.
