Since 2010, Monsanto Fund has sponsored an America’s Farmers Grow Communities grant program. Farmers enter to win $2500 for their favorite community nonprofit organization. One winner is selected in each of the 1271 counties in 39 states.

This year Lani and Brad Bismark from Nessel Township were the recipients of this grant. They donated the money to the Chisago County Fair. On June 25 there was a donation ceremony at the fairgrounds.
