Plans are currently under way for the annual Indiana Farmers Union convention, which will be held on Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the beautiful Joseph Decuis Wagyu Farm in Columbia City, Indiana. The FREE event, which is open to Indiana Farmers Union members and non-members, alike, will include refreshments throughout the day, a buffet lunch, and a farm tour, as well as several discussion-led sessions and a board meeting.
This year’s convention will include a formal exploration of the current dairy crisis, which is affecting many of our organization’s independent dairy farmers. We also will host a session on industrial hemp, as well the latest efforts by Indiana Farmers Union’s hemp chapter to push for the crop’s legalization in our state. Lastly, Greg Gunthorp, a celebrated fourth-generation Indiana pig farmer, owner of Gunthorp Farms in LaGrange, Indiana, and a nationally known advocate and speaker, will deliver the day’s keynote speech.
