New Horizon Farms is a participant in the Pipestone Watertower Parade. Each summer, we have a large contingency that includes New Horizon Feeds, New Horizon Grain, and New Horizon Farms tractor trailers in addition to a float being pulled by the New Horizon partners. Employees and their families all receive a t-shirt that represents the theme of the parade and are welcome to ride, walk and throw candy. We frequently hear comments from spectators on how fun it is to see the colorful float and number of units we provide for this event. It is also impressive to see how many employees and family members come to represent the company. It is a great celebration for New Horizon Farms and the community.
National Pig Day is March 1st, and New Horizon Farms takes this opportunity to educate and often times introduce these animals to small children at local pre-schools and daycares. We also drop by area nursing homes and facilities to allow elderly men and women a chance to pet and hold a baby pig. It is often something they have not done since their youth or early adulthood. It is fascinating to hear them share their stories of days on the farm.
New Horizon Farms participated in the Pipestone County Food Stands dedication last year. We were excited to have partnered with the local 4-H and Pipestone County in this endeavor. Together we provided a building where fairgoers can come, enjoy food and spend time visiting. In addition to the fair, this building is available to the community to rent for various events throughout the year.
