Unwind and Enjoy an Off-Farm Experience with Other Farm Couples
In response to high levels of both personal and financial farm stress, the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Dairy Team is offering three “Farm Couple Getaways” across Iowa, with one location in Northwest Iowa. The program is for farm couples wanting to take advantage of activities to improve farm family communication, work on farm or family goalsetting or farm transitioning, or who would just like a weekend away to discuss farm and family issues as a couple.
The local getaway will be held on Friday and Saturday, April 9-10, at Lakeshore Center at Okoboji, 1864 HWY 86, Milford. The “getaway” will run from 12:30 p.m. on Friday to 3:15 p.m. on Saturday. There is no cost to attend, as food, lodging and other expenses are being paid for by sponsorships; however, there is a $50 per couple deposit to hold each reservation, refundable on the second day of the getaway.
