Visit Minnesota Farmers Union and Farmers Union Insurance Agency at Farmfest 2019
July 31, 2019
Minnesota Farmers Union (MFU) and Farmers Union Insurance Agency (FUIA), a full-service agency fully owned by MFU, will once again have a strong presence at Minnesota Farmfest.
This annual event takes place at Gilfillan Estate just outside of Morgan, Minn., from Aug. 6-8. MFU and FUIA staff and Agents will be there throughout at lot 509, a blue hoop tent just west of the Wick Forum Building.
Farmfest brings together farmers, agribusiness, government and agricultural organizations from Minnesota. Many policy makers will be in attendance to hear from constituents, including House Agriculture Committee Chair Collin Peterson and U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue, as well as most of Minnesota’s congressional delegation and Gov. Tim Walz and his cabinet.
“Farmfest is an exciting time this year, with Chair Peterson, Secretary Perdue, Gov. Walz and his cabinet and many other important policy makers in attendance,” said MFU President Gary Wertish. “I encourage all farmers and rural residents to come to Farmfest and engage with elected officials on rural policy, as well as visit the Farmers Union booth.”
MFU and FUIA activities include:
- AGRITOURISM SIGNS: MFU will have signs available for farmers at the booth. Agritourism signs explain the risks of visiting a farm. For MFU members, the first sign is free, and each additional sign is $7. Signs are $10 each for non-members.
- 40 SQUARE COOPERATIVE SOLUTIONS: FUIA agents who sell 40 Square Cooperative Solutions health insurance plans for Minnesota farmers will be available in the booth to answer questions about the health insurance market, eligibility and available plans.
- PIZZA: MFU and FUIA will have pizza from Big River Pizza available at the hoop barn. Additionally, University of Minnesota Farm Families of the Year may use a coupon for one FREE pizza pie at the barn, or 50 percent off a pizza at Big River Pizza’s restaurant in St. Paul.
