A Networking Group of SFA
This group is an association of garlic growers in the Upper Midwest who have joined together to learn from each other through networking and events, and to promote garlic growing and sales in our region.
We’re going to set up a series of farm tours at garlic growing operations. If you’d like to offer to host one of them, pick a first and second choice from these dates:
June 18, 19, 25, 26
July 2, 3, 9,10
Send that to Jerry Ford a email@example.com, with a brief description of your operation or a link to your website. We’d like to get these on the calendar by May 1st.
Applications now being accepted for garlic vendors at Minnesota Garlic Festival. Growers in MN, WI, IA, SD & ND who meet the criteria will be considered. Read all about it here.
