University of Minnesota Extension will be hosting a workshop on Thursday, January 26, from 5:30 to 7 PM with an agenda filled with multiple topics geared toward the needs of the beginning farmer, hobbyist, or backyard producer and those who would like to raise birds on a small scale. Join them at Genesis Town and Country (820 East Main Street, Belle Plaine) for this fun and informative session! Registration fee: $20 for adults, $10 for spouse/business partner, $10 for students.
