More than 13-hundred people were on hand Thursday night for the annual Family Night on the Farm event hosted by the Winona Area Chamber of Commerce.
It took place on the Greden's Ponderosa Dairy Farm near Altura and featured activities and demonstrations.
Chamber President Della Schmidt said she was pleased with the number of first-timers who had never been on a farm who attended. Schmidt said the event gave a lot of folks an opportunity to understand where their food and milk comes from. Attendees had a chance to tour the farm facilities and observe a milking operation in progress. The sixth-generation Gredens have a 500-cow heard and milk three times a day.
