Farm Tech Days benches available

Searching for a great Christmas gift for the agriculturalist? Farm Technology Days (FTD) offers several items perfect for the farmer who already has everything.

A limited amount of custom-made benches are available for purchase. On the back plate of the bench, words of the buyer's choice can be inscribed. These benches will be used for seating during the Farm Technology Days show, July 20-22, 2010. Buyers can pick their benches up after the show has completed.

A bench can be purchased for $150. These benches are offered by the fundraising committee. Purchase of a bench is considered a tax-deductible donation to the show. For more information on the benches, please contact Beth Ingli at 715-639-2630.

Selling more than 1,500 copies, a popular item is the Farm Technology Days cookbook, "A Taste of Pierce County." The cookbook offers 732 recipes from more than 225 county residents. Several recipes are from the FTD host family, Roger and Bev Peterson. These are available for $15.

Other Farm Technology Days items available include t-shirts, baseball caps, sweatshirts, bags and plush stuffed animals. Purchase of these items and the cookbook can be made online at, under the Farm Tech Store tab. All proceeds support the 2010 show.
