I am excited to let you know about an offer to win free groceries for a year from Minnesota farm families. This contest is being sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation and ten other agriculture commodity and industry groups in our state. Our family is proud members of the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF). MFBF is a grass organization of farmers who are working to preserve, promote and strengthen American agriculture. We also pay check-off dollars to Midwest Dairy Association and Minnesota Beef Council.
Farmers Feed Us is now growing nation wide and has contests in many other states. On the website you are able to tour farms, learn new recipes and most importantly register to win free groceries for a year! Make sure to tour the farms of the hard working Minnesota farmers, but also take time to view farms in other states. It is interesting to see other operations and see the difference from state to state.
The Widboom family is one of the family farms you are able to tour on the website. Matt and Teresa farm along with Matt’s parents in Southwestern Minnesota. I first met Matt and Teresa back in 2004 when I still worked for MFBF. They are a fun couple who are passionate about raising quality crops and beef cattle.
I met Charity Vold, when we both were attending South Dakota State University. Charity and Greg’s dairy operation is first class. They have a huge emphasis on consumer education and welcome school tour groups regularly to the farm.
Like I always say, “if you enjoyed a meal today thank a farmer.” Every meal, whether it is a steak dinner or bowl of cereal begins some where with a farmer.
I hope that you will check out the website. There is a lot to learn on it. Of course, don’t forget to enter to win the free groceries.
