To date, 33 corn mazes in 19 states have joined together to plant more than 7 million “seeds of gratitude” for the hard work of America’s farmers, said Culver’s in a news release. “As part of the Thank You Farmers initiative, these mazes are just one of the many ways Culver’s shows charitable support for the future of farming.”
Culver’s points out that farmers are “responsible for growing the food that every single person depends on, yet their immense contributions are often overlooked.”
The restaurant chain has sponsored many initiatives to benefit farmers and rural youth groups.
“Corn mazes are such a natural place for us to celebrate America’s farmers,” said Jessie Corning, Culver’s senior marketing manager. “A popular fall tradition among families, they’re a great way for us to spread the Thank You Farmers message to guests of all ages.”
The Thank You Farmers initiative spreads awareness for agriculture in visually compelling ways and has raised over $1 million in support of agricultural education programs such as the National FFA Organization and Foundation and local FFA chapters since 2013.
