Showcasing the local ag economy is the goal of a pilot program hosted by the Clinton Chamber of Commerce.
Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce, Marian Brisard says it is a promotion of DeWitt County and its strong ag connection to the state and the world.
No date has been set yet but Brisard is targeting a tour date of early May starting at Toohill Seed and Beef.
Director of the DeWitt County Farm Bureau, Janel Baum Thomas says the three entities of the Farm Bureau, the DeWitt County Development Council and the Chamber are piloting this program and it is a highlight of the agribusiness community in DeWitt County.
Baum Thomas hopes this program is a hit to offer more tours to their members or associate members for the community. She believes there is an interest for those locally that did not grow up on a farm.
