Turkey To Go, the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association’s (MTGA) food stand at the Minnesota State Fair, celebrated 60 years of selling delicious turkey products to fairgoers.
Minnesota turkey farmers have always been forward thinkers and passionate about raising birds. Sixty years ago, turkey was considered more of a seasonal product mainly around the holidays, but our farmers saw its big potential. That’s why they made a commitment to serve turkey in a variety of ways and highlight it as a convenience food to consumers at the Minnesota State Fair.
Today, this driving passion for promoting and serving a quality product to fairgoers remains the same. “Stopping by Turkey To Go is a favorite food destination — truly a staple — of fairgoers enjoying Minnesota State Fair since 1958,” – said Steve Olson, MTGA Executive Director. “When people come to the fair, they expect a great turkey product and we have aimed to deliver that quality guarantee for 60 years. It is exciting to see what changes 60 years have brought to Minnesota’s turkey farmers and Turkey To Go,” Olson said. “We are certainly optimistic for new opportunities to raise, promote and serve turkey in the next six decades!”
