MOLLY YEH TO APPEAR AT CROP EXPO - Northern Plains Potato Growers Association is pleased to announce that it has scheduled Molly Yeh, the star of The Food Network's Girl Meets Farm to make a personal appearance at the International Crop Expo on Thursday, February 20th.

Yeh will speak briefly and answer questions in Ballroom 4 at the Alerus Center at 1:00 PM followed by an appearance at the NPPGA booth on the Crop Expo floor from 2:00 to 3:00 PM where she will sign her new book, Molly on the Range. Copies of the book will be for sale at both appearances.

Molly lives with her husband Nick Hagen and their baby daughter on a farm near East Grand Forks. Nick's grandfather Cliff Hagen was the Chairman of the Board for the Red River Valley Potato Growers Association in 1966-67. The Hagen farm and the Greater Grand Fork area is the actual taping location for her hit television show Girl Meets Farm.
