    A farm in Whitinsville, Massachusetts, is celebrating the success of Tom Brady and the New England Patriots with a corn maze.

    Weaving through 8-foot tall corn stalks, cut into a winding crop of cob-filled paths is a pretty amaing sight.

    It’s impossible to tell from the ground the secret that’s been quietly growing at the West End Creamery ice cream shop and corn maze. But from the air, New England Patriots fans should be impressed.

    "Each year we pick a different theme and it just of course is so fitting that for 2017 we’re doing a 'roger that' corn maze," said General Manager Owen Cooper.

    The 'roger that' is in reference to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and all of his deflategate drama.

    The six and a half acre corn field also features a football, the words 'Go Pats' and of course, quarterback Tom Brady sporting his #12 jersey.

    "We thought that would be an awesome way to celebrate the Super Bowl victory from last year, and we wish them the best for this season too," Cooper said.

    It may sound corny, but Cooper and the team at West End Creamery began planting the seed for their maze plan shortly after the ultimate Super Bowl comeback win.

    "The secrets that I can give away is that it’s cut in when the corn is very short, it just makes it a lot easier, so we like to think that Tom Brady’s been in our corn field here for months," Cooper said.

    And the football fans in central Massachusetts seem to love it.

    "Oh man, yeah, that’s so awesome, I mean yeah that’s a real kick in the pants," said Sam Mesite, of Douglas.

    "It’s all in good fun, it’s in good fun," said customer, Terry Masterson.

    The corn maze opens to the public starting with the West End Creamery Fall Festival on Sept. 23.
