The Minnesota agriculture community came together for the Inaugural Ag Day Gala, hosted by the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation, on March 22 at the Green Acres Event Center in Eden Prairie. 

The evening celebrated the diversity of Minnesota agriculture, recognizing its strong past and bright future. During the program Foundation Director Ruth Meirick highlighted how everyone in attendance represents one link in a special chain that unifies agriculture in this great state, and by working together we can continue to strengthen and support each other. This was displayed beautifully by the variety of those involved in Minnesota agriculture who were in attendance.

Thank you to all those who joined us, and we look forward to seeing you at next year’s event.
