Rea Hybrids is committed to farmers in the North in the fields and out. That’s why we partner with America’s Farmers to give back to the community. America’s Farmers is an advocacy program dedicated to recognizing farmers for all their hard work and educating consumers about the role of agriculture in their lives.
Through America’s Farmers, we’re able to bring you a variety of programs designed to celebrate accomplishments and give back to farming communities. Rea Hybrids DSM Brett Sauer recently had the opportunity to give back to his alma mater, the Emerado 127 School District, in Emerado, ND, through the Grow Rural Education initiative.
We hope you will consider entering one – or all – of the America’s Farmers contests, too.
