Faribault Farm Business Breakfast
I had the privilege of being able to attend the Farm Business Breakfast this morning! The event was put on by The Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce Ag-Business Committee and sponsored by Community Co-op. All food was prepared and served by Arna Farmer Catering and Cakes with ingredients provided by farmers and stores from the area.
Even though I grew up in the city and never spent much time on a farm, I have always appreciated farmers and what they do, so I loved that all aspects of this breakfast was produced locally.
The local producers that provided food for this morning includes:
Ableman's Apple Creek Orchard in Faribault
Ben Penne Farm in Belle Plaine
Boudless Roots in Clinton Falls
CannonBelles in Cannon Falls
Graise Farm in Faribault
Hastings Co-op Creamery
Hy-Vee Food Store
Jennie-O Turkey Store in Faribault
Jirik's Family Farm in Kilkenny
Piper's Sugar Bush in Faribault
Prairie Farm Cheese - Caves of Faribault
Ruf Acres Market in Faribault
Singing Hills in Nerstrand
There were also many great speakers, including Lynn Ketelsen, farm broadcaster and owner of the Linder Farm Network, Megan Roberst, Extension Educator in Agricultural Business Management, and Bev Durgan, Dean of University of Minnesota Extension.
If you have never been, I would highly recommend checking it out next year!
