Ag tour reveals surprises
Thursday, July 26, 2018
The modern ag tour of Martin County on Wednesday drew about 30 people from diverse backgrounds.
Farmers, pork producers, media, economic development and several members of the Minnesota House of Representatives, urged to attend by their fellow representative, Bob Gunther of Fairmont, hopped on a chartered bus for a six-stop journey culminating at the “Ground Up” dinner at the Tumbleson farm north of Sherburn.
This is the second year for the ag tour, which was organized by Stephanie Busiahn, executive director of Visit Fairmont; Wanda Patsche, representing the pork industry; Joanne Schmidt, representing the crop industry; and Linsey Preuss, Fairmont economic development director.
