At a time when publicly supporting law enforcement can be enough to make a company a target for protests, one Georgia farm is letting it all hang out.
Corn Dawgs — a farm in Loganville, Georgia, that acts as an “agri-tourism themed adventure park” — has earned a reputation for its elaborate corn maze designs, which honors a different aspect or figure in American culture each year.
This year, the Georgia farmers have left no doubt about who they feel is most worthy of their tribute:
Along with the sneak-peek of the new “Back the Blue” design, the company writes:
“With a little over 4 weeks left before opening day we would like to reveal our 2016 maze design.
A tribute to the men and women in uniform that risk their lives everyday to keep us safe.
Thank you for all you do. Please join us in support of all first responders! #backtheblue”
Featuring the depiction of an officer, a squad car, and an outline of the state of Georgia — along with, of course, the phrase “Back the Blue” — the huge maze covers approximately seven acres about forty-five minutes outside Atlanta.
As IJR.com reported last year, each maze is created by programming the design into GPS-coordinated tractors, which allows for some truly impressive tributes.
In 2015, Corn Dawgs owners Misty and Lamar Duren honored “American Sniper” Chris Kyle, who was killed in 2013 at a Texas shooting range:
In case you feel like checking it out for yourself, Corn Dawgs will be open to the public from September 16th to November 6th.
As for what the farm’s owners have in store for next year, only time will tell.
