Many farm families take an annual “knee high by Fourth of July” photo to show how tall the corn is. Some of those snapshots have three or four generations, and it’s neat to see the faces of our past and future farmers together.
Kids and crops are two of our most important assets in southwest Minnesota, and both take a lot of nurturing. Farmers have spent years learning how different inputs yield the best crops, but they may not realize their hard work can give local kids their best start, too. With our Keep It GrowingSM farmland giving program, land remains in production while earning revenue to support our work to give every kid an opportunity to succeed. With a gift of land, farmers can make sure all our kids have what they need to grow, though maybe not quite as tall as the corn.
If you want to know more, stop and visit us at Farmfest near Redwood Falls August 1-3. We hope to see you there!
