The Women in Agriculture Network (WAGN) will host a summer tour to Redhead Creamery in Brooten.
The tour will take place Wednesday, Aug. 16, from approximately 10:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. The afternoon features lunch at the creamery, tour of the farm and a discussion on managing a family business. Coach bus transportation will be provided and pick-ups will be late morning at University of Minnesota Mid-Central Research and Outreach Center in Willmar; St. Cloud Regional Extension Office and the Sauk Centre Walmart. Registrants will receive more details about pick-up and drop-off details closer to the event date.
Betty Berning, Extension educator, said, “We asked women for feedback on a summer networking event and have created the tour to Redhead based on their responses. Women were clear that they wanted time to network and relax, while learning about a farm to market business. Participants will have the opportunity to socialize and learn more about what it takes to make a successful business.”
The registration deadline is Aug. 9. The fee needs to be paid in advance. To register for the event, visit: https://z.umn.edu/WomeninagAugust2017
