Gateway's 49th continuous year, showcasing the latest products services and technologies available in agriculture. The show was originated to bring agricultural producers into direct contact with ag businesses both local and from across the country. The show continues to grow, adding an additional exhibit building in 2014 and bringing booths back to the concourse in 2016. The Gateway Farm Expo now features over 400 booth spaces - all filled with agricultural exhibitors. From the latest in large agriculture equipment to small items that make daily farm tasks more efficient, everyone attending the show will find something of interest.
The free pork and beef barbecue, offered each day at lunch has become a time-honored tradition that everyone enjoys. Made possible by the many volunteers who prepare it and the local businesses who sponsor and serve it, this lunchtime tradition puts a smile on the faces of visitors and exhibitors alike.
Administered by the nonprofit Kearney Farm Expo, Inc, and coordinated by KAAPA (the Kearney Area Ag Producers Alliance), Gateway finds itself aligned with a group of individuals and leaders who understand the value of agriculture and who proudly work toward enhancing the Gateway Farm Expo experience for exhibitors and visitors alike.
Gateway Farm Expo has added a keynote speaker to the lineup for 2018. Market Anelyst, Sue Martin will entertain and educate Expo guest with topics of interest to area ag producers.
