TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI): Thursday was a special day for farmers in the Wabash Valley.

Multiple groups in Terre Haute came together for a special luncheon for farmers at the Landing at Fort Harrison. It’s called the Wabash Valley Farmers Luncheon. Organizers say this is a perfect way for the community to show how important farmers truly are. In fact, they have a bigger impact on our community than we may know.

“If you buy food, and are concerned with the price of your food, this is important,” said Brian Boyce. He owns a local farm.

He told News 10 that this luncheon allows farmers to network and exchange ideas with each other so they can apply new things to their specific business.

People in attendance also enjoyed good food, music, and great company.  Thursday marked its first official luncheon.  Organizers hope to keep this luncheon an annual thing.  

“This is a big family reunion”, said Boyce.
