ALDEN, MN — Some in our area are getting the chance to see what really takes place on area farms.
An event put on by the Minnesota Soybean Farmers took place near Alden to check out how farmers care for their animals, the land and the environment.
County commissioners, elected officials and area business people are just some of the attendees.
They got a chance to see the equipment and technology today’s farmers are using.
“It seems sometimes that we’re getting more and more removed from agriculture and so some of these people maybe haven’t been on a farm in many years and so we want to bring people out, show them around our farm. We have corn, soybeans, alfalfa and dairy heifers,” said farmer Dan Erickson.
Those who attended were also treated to dinner on the farm.
