What would it look like if Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were friends?

Head up to Dewey, Arizona where Mortimer Farms has quite literally planted that image into their corn fields.

"This year with the 2016 presidential election underway we decided it was time to give a great message. The presidential election needs to be about unity of our great country," said Ashley Mortimer in an email to ABC15.

The design shows Clinton and Trump holding hands and gesturing the "peace" sign. The words "Your Vote Your Voice" were cut out above them.

Ashley said the actual cutting of the corn field into the design happens very early on in the process when the stalks are "just a few inches tall" and only takes a day. The most time-consuming part is coming up with the design, which happens months earlier, she said.

They use field corn as their "blank canvas," said Mortimer. It's used because it grows tall and fast and after the season can be harvested to feed the animals.

Mortimer Farms is in the midst of their October Pumpkin Festival where you can go through the corn maze, hop on a hayride and pick-up a pumpkin.
