Two diplomats from New Zealand made Hugo and Forest Lake stops on their three-state agriculture tour to Montana, Minnesota and Michigan. Alistair Polson, a sheep and cattle farmer who serves as a special agriculture trade envoy, and Danie Beukman, second secretary of trade and environment, made stops on Saturday at the Fran Miron farm in Hugo, and at Sharlene and Pat Daninger’s Autumnwood Farm Creamery in Forest Lake. Miron, who is also the area county commissioner, represented the Minnesota Farm Bureau as tour host. During the creamery visit, the delegation was given a tour of the facility and posed with the creamery and farm owners to sample the popular chocolate milk bottled at the dairy.
