MFU is at FarmFest on August 2 - August 4

 

Minnesota Farmers Union (MFU) is happy to invite everyone to the 2016 FarmFest event at Gilfillan Estates, just outside of Redwood Falls, Minnesota, from Tuesday August 2nd to Thursday August 4th. MFU staff will be there throughout the week and invite you to stop by and visit. There will be hundreds of Farmers and Ag industry leaders at this year's FarmFest, many great discussions in the Wick building and tons to see.

Minnesota Farmers Union will be displaying the "Trusted Choice Chopper" again this year at their building, which is located on lot 509, on Tuesday August 2nd. This chopper was custom built for Trusted Choice and the Minnesota Independent Insurance agents & Brokers by Paul Teutul Sr. of Orange County Choppers, and is used as a fundraising campaign tool together with the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Stop in at the MFU hoop barn and get your picture taken with the "Trusted Choice Chopper".

"FarmFest is a great opportunity for family farmer to get together and discuss what is happening home on the farm. Key rural issues and farm issues are important to keep in the forefront of our congressional and agricultural leaders and Farmfest is a key event where they will be all in one spot together," said Doug Peterson, Minnesota Farmers Union President. "Minnesota Farmers Union has a great location just west of the forum building on lot 509 in the hoop barn. Stop by, check out the chopper and join us for a good conversation. See you out there!"
