If having a statue erected and street renamed in his honor were not proof enough, one business' creative touch proved just how revered and a-maze-ing the career of recently retired Packers wide receiver Donald Driver was to the denizens of the Dairy State.
David and Leslie Muer, co owners and operators of Meuer Farm in Chilton, Wis., as reported by wisfarmer.com on Thursday, decided to honor the 38-year-old Driver, who retired from the NFL in early February following a 14-year run in Titletown, in the form of carving an outline of the green and gold’s all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards wearing his No. 80 jersey in a portion of the 10-acre corn field in southwest Calumet County.
The implementation of the design, as noted by wisfarmer.com, was in collaboration with corn maze designer Brett Herbst, a Utah native who has custom designed more than 2,000 corn fields.
Marking the fifth year of its corn maze promotion, Meuer Farms, a 150-acre family-operated working farm, was recognized as the 2013 Wisconsin Agricultural Tourism Association business of the year.
