Thank You Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Farmers!

So I always knew I liked Culver's, but after today, its probably a super bad thing that I live 2 minutes from this tasty restaurant.

Today I learned that Culver's has teamed up with the National FFA Organization to thank American farmers and the future of American agriculture, FFA members! In a world where it sometimes seems that hardworking farmers and ranchers are constantly the target of misguided information and radical untruths, to see something as simple as a photo on Facebook being shared and liked thousands of times can put a smile on the face of anyone involved in agriculture.

And beyond the fact that Culver's is proud to shout their support of farmers from the social media roof tops, they are also helping others thank a farmer by sending thank you notes, which in turn Culver's will donate $1 to the National  FFA Foundation for every note sent.

Then after you write your note, head on over to Culver's and divulge your taste buds in a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Concrete Mixer. Well, that's what I did anyway. And let me just take this moment to say thank you to the "Reese's Peanut Butter Cup farmers" for providing me with a tasty relief from my work day. Your Peanut Butter Cup farming is much obliged. :-)
Hey brother bears and poppa Lyle, to thank you for being super great farmers, I ate ice cream in your honor. You're welcome :-)

But before I sign off, I would just like to share a little diddly of information about other restaurants and food services companies that, shall we say, do not support American farmers. These places support groups such as The Humane Society of the United States and have been bullied by this radical anti-agriculture group to eliminate buying products raised by certain methods of production that HSUS does not agree with. Methods that American farmers use to produce the safest and healthiest food products in the most humane and efficient ways possible.

The list of places include:
  • McDonald’s
  • Wendy’s
  • Burger King
  • Sonic
  • Safeway
  • Harris Teeter
  • Winn-Dixie
  • Carl’s Jr.
  • Hardee’s
  • Quiznos
  • Red Robin Gourmet Burgers
  • Chipotle
  • Whole Foods
  • Wolfgang Puck
  • along with many other businesses.
But, there is one restaurant that I will not be throwing under the bus like the above mentioned, and that is Domino's! After last year's Ag Pizza Party, Domino's scored major brownie points in the supporting American Farmers category. And now I can happily add Culver's to that category.

So I guess it looks like my diet from now on will consist of Domino's pizza and Culver's concrete mixers. Well, maybe just today's diet anyway.

...that's what she said


  1. As a granddaughter of a Nebraskan farmer, this list makes me very sad. I was excited when I saw Culver's "Thank a Farmer" ad. Our country can tend to bite the hands that feed it by not supporting those who work so hard to provide the food we need grown in a safe and proper environment. I just started to follow your blog on Blog Lovin', and I am looking forward to learning more about today's agriculture, especially so I can teach it to my kids! Thanks!

    1. Thanks for reading! I hope I can share a little bit of the world of agriculture with you. If you ever have any questions about anything ag related, shoot it my way :-) Be happy to answer!

  2. I thought my website was going to show up, but it didn't. I also am writing about Nebraska, but more about traveling around it, rather than focusing on agriculture. Thanks!
