AG TOUR

Ag in the Classroom: Ag in the Classroom: Farming the Red River Valley

Minot to Grand Forks

The 2020 farm tour is going to the eastern part of the state. Join us as we visit the Red River Valley area to learn about how farming in eastern North Dakota is different from that in the west. This tour will depart Minot. We will visit agriculture related businesses from Devils Lake to Grand Forks. The tour will visit beet and potatoes fields and processing plants.  We will visit the North Dakota State Mill and Elevator to learn about the nation’s only state-owned flour plant. We will spend one night in Grand Forks. Participants will be allowed to join us in Devils Lake if that is more convenient. (Lodging and some meals will be covered by NDGA.) Tuition fee for one credit is $50  and $50 class fee. Register online at http://www.ndgeographic.org. For more information contact Jeffrey Beck at 701-240-9231 or email at jeff.beck@minot.k12.nd.us.
