Free "Farm Couple Getaway" will be held in Decorah in February

Posted: Sun, Jan 6, 2019 3:32 PM

The Winneshiek County Extension Office is sponsoring a "Farm Couple Getaway" next month at the Hotel Winneshiek.  The event is intended for farmers wanting to improve farm family communication, to work on goal-setting or farm transition planning or to take a weekend away to discuss farm and farm family issues. 

The first event will be held at the Hotel Winneshiek from 12:30 p.m. Friday, February 16th, through 3:00 p.m. Saturday, February 17th.  There is no cost to attend the program as food, lodging and other expenses are being paid for by grants and sponsorships.  However, there is a $50 per couple deposit to hold each reservation, refundable on the second day of the getaway.

Each "getaway" will consist of eight farm couples and staffers from the Extension Office.  Registration will be on a first come, first serve basis with registrations due two weeks prior to each session. Registration brochures for the Decorah site can be obtained from the Winneshiek County ISU Extension Office at (563) 382-2949 or by e-mailing Jenn Bentley at
