Need a rest from touring equipment and watching field demonstrations at Husker Harvest Days? Well, there is a place to sit back, relax, enjoy a beer, visit with friends and play some games. Syngenta Square is back at Husker Harvest Days, Sept. 14-16 at Grand Island, Neb.

This venue offers Husker Harvest Days attendees a chance to relax after a long day at the show. Syngenta Square will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 14-15 — which will allow visitors a chance to relax while some traffic moves off the site. The last day of Husker Harvest Days, Sept. 16, it is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Local beers showcased

Adult beverages will be served in the tent. Working with Nebraska Brewers Guild, Syngenta Square will offer a range of locally made beers.

While show visitors can purchase beverages in the square, the company is also offering attendees the chance to earn a free beverage through a visit to the company booth.

The Syngenta exhibit and Syngenta Square are not far from each other. Show visitors can take the tour of the exhibit at Lot 1106 and then walk right out of the gate and into the tent.

Food and nonalcoholic beverages are offered by the Grand Island Senior High’s food booth, The Hula Hut, nearby.

About the Author(s)

Mindy Ward

Editor, Missouri Ruralist

Mindy resides on a small farm just outside of Holstein, Mo, about 80 miles southwest of St. Louis.

After graduating from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural journalism, she worked briefly at a public relations firm in Kansas City. Her husband’s career led the couple north to Minnesota.

There, she reported on large-scale production of corn, soybeans, sugar beets, and dairy, as well as, biofuels for The Land. After 10 years, the couple returned to Missouri and she began covering agriculture in the Show-Me State.

“In all my 15 years of writing about agriculture, I have found some of the most progressive thinkers are farmers,” she says. “They are constantly searching for ways to do more with less, improve their land and leave their legacy to the next generation.”

Mindy and her husband, Stacy, together with their daughters, Elisa and Cassidy, operate Showtime Farms in southern Warren County. The family spends a great deal of time caring for and showing Dorset, Oxford and crossbred sheep.
