Wednesday is Ag Day on Campus: Sample farm products on Library Mall

Be sure to stop by Library Mall on Wednesday to meet the farmers and agriculturalists who help produce the nation’s food. This event, the fourth annual Ag Day on Campus, runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. l.

“We are excited to host Ag Day on Campus to help our fellow students learn about an industry that produces the food we consumer every day,” says Kate Griswold of the UW-Madison chapter of Collegiate Farm Bureau, which sponsors the event. “We are partnering for the second year with the University Club on campus and look forward to providing more amazing food products grown and produced by people in Wisconsin.”

Collegiate Farm Bureau members will be handing out food samples using products from Wisconsin, including milk from Sassy Cow Creamery, Rushing Waters Smoked Trout, Asian grilled pork belly, Baklava, and cheese and sausage. The public is also encouraged to check out the menu at the University Club that day, which will be featuring some of these products.

“Our members, with roots in agriculture, are excited to talk to anyone about the nutritious and safe food they grew up and are still helping to produce on their family’s or a local farm,” said Griswold.
