Area farmers honored with free meal in Chippewa Falls

Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – The local farmers who put food on our tables were honored with a meal of their own on Wednesday.

The Chippewa June Dairy Day Farmers Appreciation Dinner was held at the Northern Wisconsin Fairgrounds. Farmers broke bread and were thanked by local supporters. 

Over 2,000 plates were served at the event that offered live music, a raffle, and free ice cream. 

"It’s really such an honor, to honor the farmers in our community and I think it’s a great opportunity for everyone to get together to do it. The businesses in our community donated tickets to the farmers so they can come here and eat dinner for free," said Michelle Farrow, the membership coordinator for the Chippewa Falls Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Chippewa Falls Area Chamber of Commerce hosted the event, with sponsors from over 100 local businesses.
