ST. CLOUD, Minn. — The Minnesota Dairy Initiative will be host two weekend  retreats for Minnesota farm couples. 

The retreats will be Feb. 28-29 at the C’mon Inn, 1009 First St. E., Park Rapids, and March 6-7 at the AmericInn by Wyndham, 240 Stadium Road, Mankato.

The purpose of the retreats is to have couples come together to enjoy a mini vacation away from the farm. The focuses include communication with your partner, communication with family, relationship building, handling stress, managing personalities, problem solving, action planning, and learning about additional resources. The retreats also include opportunities to network with other farming couples, short lectures, group activities, and partner exercises.

The retreats are limited to the first 10 couples to sign up per location. All lodging, meals, refreshments and materials are included in registration. Registrations are being covered by the Minnesota Dairy Initiative and other business and organizations.

All farm couples, no matter what they raise or grow, are eligible to attend.
