Farm Couples can Enjoy a Weekend Getaway this Winter

In response to high levels of both personal and financial farm stress, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is offering three “Farm Couple Getaways” aimed at farmers wanting to take advantage of activities to improve farm family communication, work on farm or family goal setting, farm transitioning, or who would just like a weekend away to discuss farm and family issues.    BROCHURE
The dates and locations for the “getaways” are as follows:

  • Friday and Saturday, March 26 and 27 at Best Western Plus in Dubuque
  • Friday and Saturday, April 16-17, 2021 at Hotel Winneshiek in Decorah.                                                 
  • Friday and Saturday, April 9-10, 2021 at Lake Shore Center at Okoboji in Milford.

There is no cost to attend, as food, lodging and other expenses are being paid for by sponsorships. However, there is a $50 per couple deposit to hold each reservation, refundable on the second day of the event.
The “Farm Couple Getaways” statewide Gold sponsor is the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, with other local sponsors recognized at each local event. More information is available in the event brochure for Eastern or Western Iowa at
