2019 Summer Harvest Supper

Last evening Harvest Land sponsored the meal at the 2019 Summer Harvest Supper at farmer-member Neil and LuAnn Gettinger’s home. The intent of this supper, organized by Wayne County Farm Bureau, was to invite consumers to share a meal with local producers and open the evening to conversation about food production.

Each supper table was set for six consumers and two producers. The producers consisted of dairymen, beef, poultry and swine producers, grain farmers, large animal veterinarians, and fruit and vegetable growers.

The consumers represented a large array of people, including business owners, teachers, insurance agents and more. The goal of the event was to have an open conversation about safe food production, and the evening proved that there is still a lot of questions out there!

Harvest Land believes strongly in educating the public about what we do. Our largest critics seem to be those who may misunderstand or are fearful based on misinformation. The Summer Harvest Supper is a perfect place to open that dialog and tell our story.

We’re proud to have been a part of this event for three years and we hope the consumers have found as much value in it as we have.
