On Saturday June 25th, at 1 PM, the Historic Andrew Peterson Farmstead was dedicated. The event was designed to thank all those who spent so much effort and energy into saving the farm. Congratulatory letters were read from Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken. US State Representative Tom Emmer, Representatives Dean Urdahl, and Jim Nash along with Carver County Commissioners Randy Maluchnik and Jim Ische joined a group of about 100. Key note speaker was Representative Dean Urdahl who spoke of the importance of saving our farmland and historic properties. Following presentations, a symbolic first Astrakhan apple tree was planted in the same location as Peterson’s orchard.
More really great news is coming soon.
