GLENVILLE, GA - If you haven’t challenged my parents to a cornhole match, you haven’t seen true competition. That’s why I was delighted to see the beloved sport was getting some attention in the fresh produce space. G&R Farms has launched a promotion with the American Cornhole Organization (ACO), which includes the Acing Summer Flavors cookbook and an online showcase of athlete profiles at ACO’s Go the Distance Festival.

Blake Dasher, Chief Executive Officer, G&R Farms“Vidalia® onions are an iconic flavor part of many summer and early fall dining occasions like backyard BBQs, picnics, everyday grilling, summer holidays, and tailgating,” said Blake Dasher, Chief Executive Officer of G&R Farms. “When we thought about our favorite summertime gatherings, cornhole was always a part of the festivities for some extra fun and friendly competition.”

The new cookbook features 12 sweet onion recipes, tips, and tricks for outdoor entertaining, and a few notes to improve your cornhole skills. The cookbook is available for download here just in time for Memorial Day, a press release stated.

G&R also remains steadfast in its dedication to the Growing America’s Farmers program, providing grants and scholarships to FFA students nationwide. Promotions are underway in 2023 regional and national retailers. The program has raised and disbursed more than $350,000 in scholarships to the next generation of farmers.

Frank Geers, Chief Executive Officer, American Cornhole Organization“We are so excited to partner with G&R Farms and make their Vidalia onions the official sweet onion of the ACO,” said Frank Geers, CEO of ACO. “Cornhole is a sport for everyone, steeped in family, fun, and friendship, and there is no better way to bring everyone together than with food and an onion that’s known throughout the U.S.”

Dasher concluded, “At G&R Farms, we’re committed to creating tools and opportunities that help our partners drive more onion sales and help consumers enjoy more consumption occasions. With great product, new packaging, new promotions, and a connection to community, we are ready for a great season.”
