Five Million Seeds Of Gratitude Planted Across America For Farmers

Culver’s Grows 19 “Thank You Farmers” Mazes 

August 15, 2016 // // PRAIRIE DU SAC, Wis. - From food to fuel, there are more than 4,000 uses for corn across the world. This year Culver’s restaurants added one more use to the list: thanking farmers.

The restaurant chain wouldn’t be what it is today without the hardworking farmers who grow the food that’s proudly served in its restaurants. That’s why Culver’s worked with farmers across the country to grow 19 larger-than-life “Thank You Farmers” mazes—including a sunflower maze in Florida—planting more than 5,360,000 seeds of gratitude for American farm families.

“Culver’s is passionate about creating ways to say thank you to farmers, letting them know that their hard work is appreciated,” said Jessie Corning, senior marketing manager. “We’re excited that our guests across the nation can join us in showing gratitude by visiting these mazes.”

These mazes are part of Culver’s Thank You Farmers program, which recognizes the hard work and commitment of the farmers who produce wholesome food to feed our nation. To date, the Thank You Farmers initiative has raised nearly one million dollars in support of the National FFA Organization and Foundation, local FFA chapters and a variety of local agricultural organizations.

Each maze design includes the Thank You Farmers message, as well as a variety of farm scene elements like cows and tractors. The 2016 Thank You Farmers Mazes are listed below:
