2018 Award Winners
STAY SAFE TAKE A BREAK 2018
During the harvest, local farmers put in tremendous time in the fields. To promote safety and to show the support of agriculture by the business community, the DACC Ag Committee is proud to partner with local businesses for the "Stay Safe Take-A-Break" Program.
The Stay Safe Project involves local businesses donating 180 items, such as snacks, notepads, safety materials, reusable shopping bags and more, and the Ag Committee delivering the bags filled with treats to farmers while they work.
During the fall harvest of 2018, the Ag Committee traveled the Northeast quadrant of Winneshiek County (north of Highway 9 and east of Highway 52) to say "Thanks!" to all area farmers working in the fields. Contact the DACC if you have questions or would like to participate in this project in 2019.
