The Green Giant.

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

On a recent road trip we stopped in Blue Earth, Mn.

Green Giant still grows and packages their Peas and Corn.

The statue we erected as a tribute to the company by the businesses

of the town.

Besides the statue, they give tours of the plant also.

Although we were there on an off day, we have heard that this tour is well worth taking.

If you get the chance, stop by.  The Statue is right behind the Dairy Queen right on the main road

(169).  It is on the south side of town.

Well worth the hour or so.

 

It was a great sunny but not good for photo's.

The Green Giant is 35 feet tall.

Like I said, a great place to visit

Hadn't thought of the Jolly Green Giant in forever! I remember so many commercials with him as a kid.
