Once upon a time, there was a Scarecrow. He lived on a farm that grew vegetables for Farmer Boys® restaurants. One day, his Dad, the farmer, brought home the Farmer’s Burger® from Farmer Boys. The Scarecrow watched his Dad enjoying flame-grilled 100% pure USDA beef, topped with All-American cheese, bacon and farm fresh lettuce, tomato, and hand-smashed Hass avocado.

Suddenly the Scarecrow became alarmed! He was scared for the fresh produce at Farmer Boys. Who would protect it? What if crows found their way into a Farmer Boys restaurant? Those concerns would appear ridiculous to most folks, but as we all know, a Scarecrow lacks a brain. The Scarecrow hopped off his pole and hitched a ride to the nearest Farmer Boys where he was hired as the Head of Security.

To this day, the Scarecrow protects the farm fresh produce that’s served on our award-winning burgers, salads, wraps and more. From what, we do not know. The Scarecrow loves all the farm fresh food, but he can’t eat any of it. He has no mouth.

You can see his exploits in Farmer Boys commercials. He’s done everything from skydiving to catapulting fresh food to the restaurant to having his head blown off to being eaten by goats. It’s all in days’ work for our strawman and always in good fun – we never really hurt our Scarecrow. We just restuff him and put him back to work. If you see the Scarecrow inside the restaurant, say hi. If he says something back, you may want to seek professional help.
