Ag-Pro Expo was dream spot for farmers looking for equipment

MILLERSBURG — Farmers and folks from the agricultural industry made their way to Harvest Ridge on Thursday for a one-stop experience, including seeing new equipment, discussing financial needs, information gathering and certification opportunities.

Dalton grain farmer Loyal Steiner and his brothers, Ed and Glen, took the opportunity to dream a little, as they looked over some of the new equipment on display at the Ag-Pro Expo.

“We’re just having fun, dreaming about some new products,” Steiner said.

There also was good fellowship, food and shelter from the bitter cold, according to Harvest Ridge Manager Pat Martin.

“We are glad to have this event here. We’ve been trying to bring this to Holmes County for some time, but COVID really messed things up,” she said. “We’re excited to have something with all this bad weather we’ve had.”

Convenient, comfortable and well represented

Bryan Frye, an Orrville farmer, said he didn’t mind coming to Millersburg. He came to the event with his cousins, who were in a class.

Ag-Pro staff met and mingled with farmers from the area at the Ag-Pro Expo Thursday at Harvest Ridge, where plenty of John Deere equipment and other agricultural services were on display.

“It’s nice here. There is a lot of nice things to see,” Frye said. “It’s nice having such a great facility to bring all this together.”
