There will be three books given away throughout the two weeks: The Kid Who Changed the World, The Beeman and How Did That Get in My Lunchbox. Each day of the fair will end with the drawing for a children’s book. These books offer children the opportunity to learn about farming, where food comes from, how honey is made and more!
MFBF will also be having a drawing for a rain barrel. While entering to win the barrel, learn how farmers have decreased their water usage in the past 20 years.
Finally, fairgoers will have the opportunity to speak with a Minnesota farmer about farming today. MFBF will be giving away thermal lunch bags, ice cream scoops and Pico de Gallo recipe cards, featuring a recipe made from Minnesota crops. New signage will be displayed in the booth, featuring photos from farms, quotes from farmers and facts about agriculture.
The MFBF State Fair building is located at 1305 Underwood Street, directly across from the Food Building and behind the giant slide.
