Valentine’s Day is approaching. Since life’s demands make it tough to deliver home-cooked results, let South Dakota soybean farmers and The Meat Lodge help you create a cozy meal for two around your dinner table. One lucky fan will receive $200 to craft a custom Valentine’s Day meal. All you have to do is choose your favorite meats and sides from The Meat Lodge menu, and they will package them for pick up or delivery in time for the big day.
Valentine’s Day reminds us it’s important to show the ones we love just how much they mean to us every day, just like local farmers – large and small – who want to improve their family farms to become more sustainable. They do a little bit each day to take better care of the land and water and, over time, this delivers big results. You might be surprised to know that 90 percent of U.S. soybeans are grown sustainably through practices like conservation tillage and by using technology to apply just the right amount of pesticides.
No matter what you choose for your perfect dinner, local farmers have you covered when it comes to sustainable food. Sign up to win by February 6, 2018, using the form below. Be sure to read the contest rules for more info.
