The Albert Lea-Freeborn County Chamber of Commerce Agricultural Committee announced this week that the Annual Agriculture Luncheon will be held in person, once again, this year. The event is scheduled for noon March 22 at the Fairlane Building on the Freeborn County Fairgrounds. 

The annual Agricultural Luncheon has been a tradition for over 40 years. As part of this annual meeting, the Agriculture Committee selects and recognizes the Freeborn County Farm Family of the Year and Farm Families of years past. 

To be nominated, the Farm Family must be Minnesota food producers actively involved in agricultural production with one or more agricultural enterprises or have made significant short-term progress and/or innovative contributions with their agricultural endeavors. Winners are selected based on their commitment to enhancing and supporting the fields of agriculture and production and their involvement in their communities and/or related organizations.
