Freedom of Independence Ride

Fifth Annual Latham Freedom of Independence Ride

Nothing displays an independent spirit like an American farmer – except perhaps an American farmer on wheels! That’s why this family-owned, independent seed company hosts an annual “field day on wheels.” Join us for a different kind of field day on Saturday, August 24!
