A hearty lunch and heartening conversations took place at the Brussels' Four Winds Wedding and Event Barn on Friday, December 1st, 2023. Gateway Centre of Excellence in Rural Health had over eighty farmers attended this event where they aimed to inform and inspire connection between farmers in Huron County and beyond.
