Thanks to the coronavirus, there will be no FarmFest this year. But Minnesota Farm Families of 2020 will be honored virtually, celebrated in an online video tribute led by University of Minnesota President Joan Gabel and available 1 p.m. Thursday, August 6. A University of Minnesota Extension Committee chooses one family per county based on their commitment to their communities and for enhancing and supporting agriculture.

Honorees from Chippewa County are the Paul Spray Family; from Lac qui Parle, Enger Farms; from Kandiyohi County, Bjornberg Farms; and from Yellow Medicine, Paul and Terri Frank. KDMA will spotlight some of these honorees in the comingĀ  week.
