Minnesota Farm Bureau Continues Tradition at the Minnesota State Fair

The Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) State Fair exhibit continues the tradition of providing fun for all ages. This year’s garden theme is Minnesota’s renowned hotdish. With an array of hotdish recipe possibilities, MFBF asked the public for help. Individuals were asked to choose their favorite hotdish recipe and submit it to the Minnesota Farmers CARE Facebook page. The recipe with the most “likes” is MFBF’s featured recipe for the Minnesota State Fair. Stop by the MFBF building to see the winning recipe and the Minnesota crops that are used to make it.


The Minnesota State Fair tradition continues with the Minnesota Farmers CARE theme. With more than half of Minnesotans who have never met a farmer, MFBF has created an opportunity for the public to ask farmers questions at the fair. Minnesota farmers will be volunteering all 12 days of the State Fair at the MFBF building where fairgoers can meet farmers who are raising and growing their food.


Fairgoers will also have the chance to win one of three $50 grocery gift card. Take a “felfie” (a farm selfie) with one of Minnesota farmers working in our booth. Post the picture to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram tagging Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) or Minnesota Farmers CARE and using the hashtag #MFBFfelfie for your chance to win! One winner from each medium will randomly be chosen to win following the fair.


Adults and children can all learn something new about Minnesota agriculture. MFBF will have drawings for children’s books, including Tops & Bottoms, and a rain barrel. Walk away with a free thermal lunch bag by learning four new facts about agriculture and take a drive in the Ag Cab Lab – Combine.

The MFBF State Fair building is located at 1305 Underwood Street, directly across from the Food Building and behind the giant slide. The State Fair runs August 21–September 1. Come on out and see the continued tradition at the MFBF State Fair building!
