Help Us Celebrate National Ag Week, March 19-26

BreakfastBattleIt can be challenge feeding a family of four, three square meals, on a budget between $45-50. Now trying buying all those groceries in less than 1 minutes and 30 seconds!

Every second counts when you’re one of 10 teams participating in the Annual Breakfast Battle. It’s definitely a fast-paced shopping mission. That’s why Latham Hi-Tech Seeds hopes to take 10 seconds off the clock by receiving the most number of votes in a Facebook poll being sponsored by Franklin County Farm Bureau.

Please vote in the Farm Bureau Facebook poll – and encourage your friends & family to vote – from now until 8 a.m. on March 26. Latham wants to be the fan favorite! Our Team has won this portion of the contest in the past, and honestly, that’s the only real bragging right we have.

Other teams are faster shoppers. Franklin County Extension rocks the ag trivia portion of this contest. For the past three years, I have vowed to train our team like we’re preparing for the 4-H Quiz Bowl. In reality, I’m still assembling our team about 24 hours prior to the event!

Regardless of how we place next Wednesday, we’re happy to be a part of the Farm Bureau’s National Ag Week activities. The 3rd Annual Breakfast Battle is sure to be a few hours well spent! The Breakfast Battle helps fill local pantries as all food purchased by the teams will be donated to the Franklin County Food Pantry and Immanuel UCC Food Pantry.
