6/28/2021 – Southern Minnesota has been in a historic, severe drought for quite some time now. “We are still looking at the driest June recorded in 110 years,” Center for Rural Policy and Development CEO and President Julie Tesch said. Our recent rainfall has farmers literally jumping for joy. “As my wife could tell you, I was running around singing and dancing. I think the other day when the first rain came through,” Guldan Family Farm owner Tim Guldan said.
