A Farmer's Salute

-
(KFOR)  An Oklahoma farmer and his wife came up with a unique, eye-catching way to pay tribute to airmen and women working at Tinker Air Force Base.

Crestview Farms in Arcadia is now being dubbed Freedom Farm, but not because of the American flag waving over its vegetables and fruits.

"We had some people from Tinker fly over and saw the property and asked us about our vegetables, 'What do you have? We saw you growing," Vernon Graff, the farmer and owner of Crestview, says.

Air Force pilots flying to Tinker managed to grab a glimpse of the couple's Oklahoma shaped all-organic garden, which got the former National Guard crew chief  thinking.

"If they're seeing that we're growing vegetables, maybe they can see a message also," Graff said.

Down on the ground, the message looks like a bad mowing job.
