Local foods available
All of the food for Wisconsin Farm Technology Days will be made on site at the food tents.
"FFA Alumni, Kiwanis Clubs and several church groups will be working together to handle the menu," Jergensen says. "Each of the six tents will offer the same food."
Louie's Finer Meats from Cumberland will be featuring a number of their meat products.
"We're trying to serve local food," Jergenson says. "Of course there will be turkey sandwiches on the menu. We produce potatoes in Barron County. We're going to have a loaded potato on the menu, too."
Fresh garden salads made up fresh everyday will also be available.
Scooters will be available at a cost of 435 per scooter for the day. There will be a designated parking area for handicapped visitors located close to the show entrance. Visitors won't be allowed to bring their own scooter because of liability issues. Courtesy shuttles will take people from one end of Tent City to the other. A first-aid station will be in the middle of Tent City.
"I think people will be impressed to see the agriculture we have in Barron County. We have a lot of corn, soybeans, alfalfa and a lot of very nice dairy farms," says Jergenson,
According to Jergenson, this will be the second time Barron County has hosted the farm show.
"We first hosted the event in 1987," he says. "We're looking forward to this year's show being bigger and better."
