InFARMation is a community Ag Advocacy Project to showcase Montana’s rich agricultural production. The inspiration came from a similar project at Washington State University. Signs are placed in fields to identify the different crops growing in the area, helping to make the traveling public more aware of the agriculture around them. The Electric City FFA Chapter of Great Falls, Montana is working with Central Montana Tourism Region as well as other contributors to provide this service.
The initial route is a loop through the three counties of Cascade, Chouteau, and Judith Basin. The route is from Great Falls to Fort Benton (US Hwy 87) to Stanford (MT Hwy 80) and back to Great Falls (US Hwy 87). A downloadable app that details crop specific information is available now and extended information can be found below.
The first InFARMation signs were put up in July 2015. In future years the goal is to expand the project to cover the entire state of Montana.
To spread the information further, agriculture, lodging and other tourism businesses have been contacted in the hopes that they will allow us to put out brochures about the project in their businesses.
We hope these signs help to give you an idea of just how much agriculture plays a part in your day to day life!
