Chris Policinski, co-founder of Fair Oaks Farms Mike McCloskey, Indiana’s Lieutenant Governor Eric Holcomb, and Director of the Indiana State Department of Agriculture Ted McKinney for the grand opening of Land O’Lakes’ new WinField Crop Adventure at Fair Oaks Farms.

“As we celebrate Indiana’s bicentennial year and our rich 200-year history, we are reminded that at our core, Indiana is agriculture,” said Governor Mike Pence. “WinField Crop Adventure showcases Indiana’s continued advancements in agricultural production and is an unmatched opportunity for Hoosiers to celebrate how farming and agriculture continue to play a pivotal role in the future of our communities. I’m thankful for the work of Fair Oaks Farms as they lead by example to inform and engage Hoosiers of all ages on Indiana’s role in the field of agriculture.”
