Culver’s of Valparaiso has partnered with Morgan Twp. and Kouts high school Future Farmers of America chapter and Culver’s of Schererville has partnered with Lowell High School FFA as part of a nationwide effort to thank the family farmers on which the restaurants depend.

Beginning Sept. 1, guests will have the chance to show their support of farmers by purchasing Blue Barn wall cutouts they can sign and have hung on the restaurant’s wall. Culver’s will donate $1 for each decal purchased.

Culver’s Thank You, Farmers partnership in participating restaurants all over the U.S. was unveiled to help spread awareness and generate support for this nation’s hardworking farmers.

"Culver’s restaurants as a whole have depended on family farms since the first restaurant opened in 1984," said Culver’s of Valparaiso owner Wendy Gates. "We want to show our gratitude by helping support the next generation of farmers."

The Morgan Twp. and Kouts high schools FFA chapter helps this next generation meet the challenges of feeding a growing population by encouraging members to develop their own unique talents and explore their agricultural interests in a broad range of career pathways -- from future farmers to biologists to veterinarians.

"Culver’s is proud to call the dairy land of Wisconsin home," said Craig Culver, CEO and co-founder of Culver’s. "Coming from a place connected to the farms that produce the dairy and grow the food that’s made the restaurant what it is, celebrating and supporting the FFA just feels right."
