A group of Minnesota food producers could move its yearly convention…to Minnesota.
Earlier this month, the Minnesota Apple Growers Association, based in La Crescent, held its annual trade show on the Wisconsin side of the river, at the La Crosse Center.
The apple growers have been meeting in La Crosse for many years, but maybe not for much longer.
Civic center manager Art Fahey told the Center Board that organizers with the Minnesota Apple Growers Association are talking about finding a Minnesota location for their convention, because ‘Minnesota’ is in the group’s name.
The conference has also attracted apple farmers from Wisconsin and Iowa.
