Founded in Gunnison, Utah in 1923, Intermountain Farmers Association (IFA), is inviting the community to help celebrate its 100 year anniversary this weekend. Since its early days as a marketing cooperative for surplus eggs in the region, IFA has grown to be an industry leader and a desirable member of the communities they serve.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, IFA has planned a series of activities on Saturday, April 15. The public is welcome to stop by any of the IFA Country Stores across the state for free food, product demonstrations, and more than $15,000 in prize drawings at their local IFA Country Store.
“Over the last century, IFA has been a steadfast partner to farmers and ranchers throughout the Intermountain West, and we are proud to celebrate our centennial year with the communities that we serve,” said Tyler Stinson, V.P. of Farm Supply Marketing. “It’s amazing to look at where IFA started and where it’s going.”
IFA has its origins with a group of Utahns who formed the Utah Poultry Producers Association in 1923. With this co-op, these poultry producers sought to help intermountain farmers and ranchers. After 100 years of growth and evolution, that same cooperative continues to serve the needs of agriculturalists under the name of Intermountain Farmers Association (IFA).
As part of the centennial activities, community members can enjoy roping dummies and HarvestRight Freeze Dried Produce Samples. Free hot dogs fresh from a Camp Chef pellet grill will be served from 11am-2pm. More than 16 vendors will be on-site at the various IFA Country Stores throughout the state, including “Smarty Roping” with professional team roper, Rhen Richard in Richfield.
