Thanks to the coronavirus, there will be no FarmFest this year. But Minnesota Farm Families of 2020 will be honored virtually, celebrated in an online video tribute led by University of Minnesota President Joan Gabel and available 1 p.m. Thursday, August 6. A University of Minnesota Extension Committee chooses one family per county based on their commitment to their communities and for enhancing and supporting agriculture.
Honorees from Kandiyohi County are Bjornberg Farms; from Pope County the Walter Organic Family Farm; from Swift County, Greg and Kathy Tweten; from Chippewa County, the Paul Spray Family; from Meeker County, Cervin Farm; from Renville County, Nachreiner Dairy; and from Yellow Medicine, Paul and Terri Frank.
We will spotlight some of these honorees in the upcoming week.
