The day of the Soybean Festival dawned grey and heavy. The thick air warned of thunderstorms. The night before, oblivious to the impending weather, I made plans for a full outdoor Saturday. I intended to hit the Soybean Festival, then meet friends for the Scottish Festival at the Dakota County Fairgrounds.
This weekend, Farmington will be home to one of only three soybean festivals in the nation. Considering soybeans are one of my favorite legumes (second only to chickpeas) I can scarcely believe the rarity of soybean festivals. We are privileged to host one right here in Farmington. The soybean festival will be yet another distinction for our small city already crowned with the honors of the Dakota County Fair and Dew Days.
I didn’t go into farming because I loved negotiating lease terms, I didn’t go into it because I loved analyzing insurance coverage, and I sure didn’t go into it because I had innate talent for predicting commodities markets.
