SIOUX FALLS — The Stockyards Ag Experience will host its second annual fundraiser, The Harvest Night, on Thursday, September 29, 2022.

The event begins at 5:30 p.m. and will be held at The Veranda by the Meadow Barn at Country Orchards outside of Harrisburg, South Dakota.

The Harvest Night is an event created to cultivate and celebrate the Stockyards Ag Experience and the community that helped create it.

“Whether our visitors come from down the street or across the world, we share the ag story through our shared past, present, and future,” shared Abby Bischoff, Executive Director at the Stockyards Ag Experience.

The night provides opportunities to connect and network with business leaders, influential community members, and hard-working local producers.


The evening will feature a farm-to-table dinner, opportunities to bid on unique auction items, and meaningful conversations with local farmers who helped make the meal possible.

“Supporting the Stockyards Ag Experience through The Harvest Night event will allow us to continue the important work of bridging the gap between consumers and producers," Bischoff said.
