In 2020, we have a few different trips we are offering with fellow county farm bureaus. One trip that was just announced is a trip in April 5-15, 2020 to see the Netherlands, Germany, France and Switzerland. This trip is through Lindstrom Travel. We have copies of the flyer on our website and at our office. Seven days will be spent on a river cruise in Europe stopping at various locations along the way.
We also are working on a trip to Alaska with Tri State Travel for late August/early September 2020. Details and brochures are not yet finalized, but they will be soon. Once that information is out, I will be sure to let you know.
We also have a few other trips that are currently in the works which include California’s Gold & Wine Country in July, Canyon Country Experience in September/October, and An American Country Christmas in November.
Are you in the Jo-Carroll Energy territory? Are you out in the country with no access to good quality, high speed internet? Jo-Carroll is working on securing a grant through the USDA to bring broadband to their customers at a higher speed. What they need from you is to know your needs! We have the documents to sign here in our office along with a copy of the map. Filling out the forms does not lock you into anything it is just part of the process to show the USDA the needs we have in our area to improve rural broadband access.
Some revamping has happened to our Farm to Fork. The ladies met and have decided to change things up a little. This year we are hosting “A Night on the Farm”. The date is set for Thursday, June 13th. We will be hosting the event at Neumiller Farms in Savanna. The night will start off with a tour at 6 p.m. and then a steak sandwich dinner following it. Cost is $15 a person or $25 a couple. Tickets must be purchased in advance. This will be a great opportunity for you to come learn about agriculture and a family farm. More information will be coming out and more details as we get closer but you are welcome to buy tickets now.
