From the Land of Kansas™ sponsor game to connect consumers with Kansas agriculture
Manhttan, Kansas – Kansas agriculture products and food will be the focus of the K-State vs. Auburn game thanks to sponsorship of from the From the Land of Kansas™ state agriculture trademark program.
“We are working to promote Kansas agriculture and agriculture products,” said Stacy Mayo, From the Land of Kansas director. “Our goal is to help consumers incorporate Kansas products into their daily lives and that even means at football games.”
Mayo explains that football game attendees have many ways to interact with Kansas companies at Thursday’s game. “Those looking for a taste of Kansas can stop by the Sample of Kansas tent located in the east parking lot,” Mayo said. “Our member companies will be on hand to provide samples of the great products we produce here in Kansas.”
For those who try a sample, they also have the chance to win great prizes including a coach Bill Snyder autographed football and items autographed by Willie the Wildcat. Winners will be announced following the game.
“Any game day visitor can also participate by showing us how you incorporate Kansas into your game day,” Mayo said. She explains that by posting a picture or a video on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #LandofKS and you’ll be entered to win a free mug. “One winner will be randomly selected in the contest.”
Game day fans dining in the west stadium buffets will see Kansas ingredients featured in their game day menu. “You’ll be able to taste Kansas Beef from Oatie Beef, Dwight, cheese from Alma Creamery, Alma, greens and tomatoes from 4-Star Hydroponic in St. John, wing sauce from Original Juan, Kansas City and artisan ketchup from Fine Foods of America.”
“We are also hosting the inaugural From the Land of Kansas tailgate contest pre-game,” Mayo said. “Our judges will taste main dishes, side dishes and desserts all vying for the prize of best tailgate. We are focused on promoting the use of Kansas ingredients into their dishes.”
