National Ag Day On March 21st

National Ag Day is just around the corner on March 21st, so why not celebrate it by hanging out with baby animals? For the 12th year, Govin's Farm in Menomonie kicked off their opening weekend Saturday.

Over the weekend, thousands of people stop out at the farm to see baby sheep, goats, pigs and more. The farm says baby chicks are the most popular animal among young children.

Owners say many people have lost their connection with agriculture, so it’s important to let people experience agriculture in its true form.

“It’s important for people to come experience agriculture in its natural form, so we maintain our connection to our food source, so we don't get radicalized,” said Farmer John Govin, the owner.

Tickets are just under $8 a person, which goes toward feeding and supporting the farm. The barn will be open for the next four weekends (March 18-19, March 25-26, April 1-2 and April 8-9) from 9 AM to 4 PM.
