Small Business Saturday

We hope to see you shopping in Hutchinson on November 28!

Farm Fatigue Thank YouFarm Fatigue Tractor Logo

Each fall the Hutchinson Agri-Business Committee, along with the Glencoe Agri-Business Committee, gather donations of food, wellness, and safety items from Chamber Members.  The donated  items are packed and hand delivered to the local farmers out in the field during harvest time.  These items are sincerely appreciated by the farmers.  Thank you to all the businesses that donated items this year!

Farm Fatigue Thank You
