Waseca, MN – Farmamerica invites the community to attend an open house on Monday, October 17 from 3 - 5 pm to meet and welcome their new executive director, Jessica Rollins. Cake and coffee will be served.
Rollins joins the Farmamerica team with life-long personal and professional experience in the agriculture industry. Her career background in agriculture communication, marketing and public relations will help lead Farmamerica into the future, building on a strong foundation portraying agriculture of the past while adding new material and displays to help share the story of today’s modern farmers.
Rollins grew up on a farm in Fillmore County. She, her husband, and daughter now reside near the family’s sesquicentennial farm outside Pemberton.
Farmamerica is a non-profit organization established by the state legislature in 1978 as Minnesota’s Agricultural Interpretive Center, telling the story of agriculture through historical tours, educational programs, and family events. The 360-acre Farmamerica site is just off Highway 14 on County Road 2, west of Waseca. More information is available at farmamerica.org.
