Southern Minnesota Between Freeborn & Wells
Dad used to tell the story of how he and my mother went to Hawaii with a neighboring couple. The guys both wore their seed corn caps. While walking around one day, a fella stopped them and asked if they were farmers. To which my Dad replied Well, yes, how did you guess? The guy said the seed corn caps gave them away. He was a representative of a seed corn company and asked if they would be interested in a tour of the seed producing facilities on the Island. They took him up on on the offer. For Dad it was the highlight of the trip.

If they hadn't been wearing the seed corn caps they wouldn't have gotten the tour.
