(Jamestown Chamber)  Did you know that the farmer’s share of a steak dinner is approximately 5% or less of what the retail price is????  You are invited to hear about this and experience a wonderful steak dinner for the price of $1.25.

The North Dakota Farmers Union and the Jamestown Area Chamber of Commerce are hosting a steak dinner on Thursday, July 12th at noon at the ND Farmers Union Conference room, located at 1415 12th Avenue SE in Jamestown.

Tickets are required for the event, but you need to pay for your meal at the door.  Tickets are available at the chamber offices or at the ND Farmers Union offices, and need to be reserved no later than Tuesday, July 3rd.

According to NDFU president, Mark Watne, “The Farmer’s Share meal is a great educational tool because it illustrates the income farmers actually receive for the food they grow. Unfortunately, it also reflects our depressed farm economy. Farmers receive less than 15 cents of every dollar spent on food. That’s the lowest it’s been since USDA began tracking the Farmer’s Share in 1993.”


Please join us in sharing the meal and finding out about our number one industry in North Dakota and how these prices are affecting our farmers within the state.  There will be representatives from the NDFU board present to share information and fellowship with our local community.


To reserve your tickets for the event, please contact the North Dakota Farmers Union at 701-252-2341 or the chamber at 701-252-4830 or stop by either place to pick up your tickets.  Hope to see you there!J
