AMHERST, Wis. (WAOW)-- A dinner was held Thursday evening to show appreciation for Wisconsin farmers.
Attendees were able to enjoy a free meal, while receiving information about stress management, monitoring finances and succeeding as a farm.
More than 100 farmers attended the event.
"I hope that they know that we love them, we appreciate everything that they do and without them, we wouldn't eat 365 days a year or have clothing," said Debra Helbach, who is with the Portage Co. 4-H Leaders Association. " They're a vital part of our community."
The Biadasz Family was named Hometown Heroes in Madison earlier this week for the work they do in promoting farm safety.
