Innovation Square was an exhibit at the center of Farm Technology Days featuring five innovating Westerns Wisconsin farms who all represent different types of agriculture and farming in the Eau Claire area. The agriculture represented was apples, kidney beans, cheese, greens, horseradish, and salmon. Get to know all these exhibitors!

On June 16, 2021, Visit Eau Claire partnered with Silver Spring Foods, Inc. to run a #GiveItZing Tournament over on Visit Eau Claire's Instagram to get in the horseradish state of mind before Farm Technology days gets here! 4 local restaurants (The French Press, Lakely, Lunchbox EC, and The Goat Coffee House) were challenged to create a menu item that features Silver Spring Foods, Inc. product as one of the ingredients. While each restaurant gave it their all and cooked up some delicious plates/drinks, the French Press's Chicken, Bacon, Avocado Melt featuring Silver Spring Foods Inc. Chipotle Ranch came out on top and was the fan favorite!
