This year's symposium will feature two field trip options and lunch in addition to presentations and posters.
- Eating Local in Saint Peter
- Learn how Saint Peter's food coop, a local coffee shop, a farmers market, and Gustavus Adolphus College are promoting local foods. Tour the new Saint Peter Food Coop and meet local growers, artisan cheese makers, and livestock producers.
- Northern Plains Dairy
- See firsthand the increasing scale of American agriculture. Located just four miles outside of Saint Peter, this state-of-the-art dairy operation houses 3,000 Jersey cows and features free stall barns and an advanced anaerobic manure digester.
