Help Illinois Farmers By Drinking Deere Beere This Summer
The John Deere Company, located in Quad Cities, is teaming up with the "For the Farmers" campaign to sell limited edition "John Beere" cans with Busch Light.
WQAD - Busch said it will be donating $1 from every 24- and 30-pack of the specialty booze purchased to nonprofit Farm Rescue, for a total of up to $100,000. Deere pledged to match Busch's donation to the nonprofit.
Farm Rescue, according to its website, is an organization that provides planting, haying, harvesting and livestock-feeding assistance to farm and France families affected by major injury, illness or a natural disaster.
The new John Deere green cans from Busch Light are pretty cool. They would probably catch on in the agricultural world even with out the donations to charity.
Keep an eye out for the special John Deere edition of Busch Light at your local liquor store this weekend. You can buy these and special John Deere/Busch Light apparel through July 3rd.
But wait. There's more!
In addition to creating and selling the special cans for charity, John Deere and Busch Light are teaming up to throw a cornhole tournament in the middle of Wisconsin. Big Bend, Wisconsin will host the Cornfield Cornhole event this Saturday May, 21.
You can still sign up for the tournament if you can make it up north this weekend.
In addition to the cornhole tournament the event will feature a tractor pull, a giant "For the Farmers" catapult, food trucks, and more.
You can sign up for the event here.
Keep drinking the Busch Light, our farmers appreciate it.
