Testimonials From Our Members

Jes Westbrock, Rothfork Associates
MTGA membership is important to our business because the association is an ally for us in the industry. I know that if there is an issue, I can call the MTGA office and they will do the leg work, and get what we need done for the best interest of all Minnesota Turkey Growers. I think having membership in the state association is an integral part of being a good steward of the turkey industry.
Ashley Klaphake, Meadowlark Turkeys LLC
MTGA membership is important for creating connections with other growers and vendors. Having relationships like this can positively impact our business in a big way. Secondly, the education piece of MTRPC creates a connection from the farmer to consumer. As people become more disconnected from the farm, MTGA  &  MTRPC give growers a chance to show the public what turkey farming is all about.
John Zimmerman, P&J Products Co.
MTGA membership is a great value to me because it not only provides a way to network and learn from other growers but also serves as our voice in St. Paul in an increasingly regulated world. There aren't many turkey farmers out there anymore so we need to be able to have a way to connect and share best management practices so we all can better our operations. MTGA  fills that need.
