For several years, Farmfest has been a major event for discussing key issues affecting farm families, the ag industry and rural communities in Minnesota and the Midwest. Many of these same issues will likely frame the discussions on ag and rural policy issues in Washington, DC in the next couple of years. In addition to bringing together numerous ag and rural leaders, this year’s Farmfest also featured a Minnesota Governor Candidates Forum and two Congressional Candidate Forums, with all major candidates participating. This allowed for some lively discussion and perspectives on many of the key issues affecting agriculture and rural communities.
