Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation Director Ruth Meirick said this event serves as a fundraiser for the foundation while celebrating the state’s diverse agriculture industry. “We have a lot of ag businesses and companies that bring food to tables around the world every day,” said Meirick. “As a part of the group that designs and puts this together, to be recognized for those efforts is amazing.” This year’s Ag Day Gala will be held on National Agriculture Day, March 19 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds.
