Iowans can now enter for a chance to win a $200 meat gift card through Iowa Farm Bureau’s Sizzlin’ Summer Giveaway in partnership with Fareway Meat and Grocery. 

One winner will be announced from each of Fareway’s 114 locations in Iowa. Additionally, one grand prize winner will receive a Traeger Pro 22 Smoker Grill, a $500 meat bundle, a Grizzly soft-sided cooler and other backyard barbeque gear. 

To enter, visit and answer five multiple choice questions about how farmers provide nutrient-dense meat, dairy and eggs, while also caring for animals and the environment. One entry per email address is allowed; the contest ends June 23. 

“This contest is part of our Real Farmers. Real Food. Real Meat. initiative to highlight the efforts of Iowa farmers raising healthy animals while prioritizing sustainability,” says IFBF President Brent Johnson. “We know consumers want to know more about how their food is grown and raised and this contest is a fun way to engage them. Farmers are incredibly proud to provide Iowans with high-quality meats that bring families together.”

“Fareway has long recognized nutritious meat comes from dedicated, responsible farmers,” says Fareway CEO Reynolds Cramer. “This contest celebrates the hard-working men and women in our state who bring food from gate to plate and celebrates food as an experience. Good memories are made around the grill, and Fareway is humbled to be a part of that.”
