MN State Fair Line-Up

The smell of mini-doughnuts, corn dogs, and chicken-fried bacon (yes, that's for real) is in the air...that can only mean one thing...the 2010 MN State Fair has opened their gates for another great season!

Edney Distributing Company's booth is located on Machinery Hill (corner of Underwood and Randall) and is packed with interesting and innovative products, useful literature, and Edney team members ready to help. We are featuring our line of Grasshopper mowers, Wallenstein chippers and splitters, and an assortment of Kasco seeders. New at Edney's lot this year is the Meyer Home Plow which attaches to the front of a home-owner's vehicle...we like it a lot and can't wait to show it to you.

Summer Shows

It's hard to believe that August is already here!

With all of the rain this season, the crops (and our lawns) are looking beautiful and green. WI Technology Days and Farmfest are behind us. Our thanks to all who visited our booths and spoke with our team members. Soaked head to toe, I had to laugh when the announcer came over the PA system at Technology Days and instructed us to "enjoy the grounds" until we had permission to exit the parking lots because the show was cancelled due to the pouring rain (and the resulting mud that we were all squishing around in).

Congrats to Pamela L. of Alma, WI and Steve M. of Hancock, MN who won the prize drawings for WI Farm Tech Days and Farm Fest!! There is still time for you to get in on the action and win great prizes. You can enter a drawing on the homepage of our website and enter in-person at our booths at upcoming events. Items like Estate Rakes, Jacto backpack sprayers, and cool Edney gear are up for grabs!

So far this season, there has been considerable interest in our Grasshopper mowers, Farm King grain augers, the Wallenstein wood processor, and Brushwolf rotary cutters (for more information on these or any of our other great products, click on Products at our website www.edneyco.com). We're looking forward to visiting with you at Dakotafest and discussing your equipment needs over a corn dog at the MN State Fair.

Can you believe early orders are starting to roll in for snowblowers?!?
