(TRENTON) – New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher visited Stony Hill Farm Market’s Jersey Fresh-themed corn maze in Chester on October 12. 

The 10-acre maze features the New Jersey Department of Agriculture’s Jersey Fresh slogan, “Jersey Fresh, As Fresh As Fresh Gets,” in the design.

Farm owner, Dale Davis, said he decided to use Jersey Fresh as his corn maze’s theme this year because of the popularity of community farmers markets and buying local.  Davis sells his produce at 20 community farmers markets throughout the week during the growing season.

New Jersey offers four seasons of agritourism, a growing segment of the agriculture industry which provides the state’s farmers with $60 million in revenue each year.
