Crawford County Farm Bureau is excited to once again host the Farm Bureau Fun and Education Center in the Whetstone Building at the Crawford County Fairgrounds!
The Farm Bureau Fun and Education Center will be open July 16 through July 22, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. The building will feature many agricultural education activities such as Buckeye Bessie, daily crafts, Minute to Win it games and Farmer for A Day. Guests can play a life-sized board game called “FARM.” The game has farming scenarios where players will receive helping hands, gain or lose tokens, based on what happens on a farm.
The building will also have a combine simulator. Visitors can climb into a combine and experience what it’s like to be a grain farmer during harvest, or choose to experience our car driving simulator. The driving simulator lets fair-goers experience just how dangerous it is to drive while impaired.
Live animals will be in the building as well! There will be a bred sow, courtesy of Hord’s Livestock, that will give birth sometime during the week. Farm Bureau will also be incubating chickens that will hatch during the week!
Around the fair, visitors can also participate in our scavenger hunt. Stop by the Whetstone Building to get your questions sheet and look for our signs as you tour the 2017 Crawford County Fair! Afterward, look for one of our county fair ambassadors to claim your scavenger hunt prize!
Farm Bureau will also be sharing information about becoming a member and member benefits. We will also be providing education about agriculture and education for farmers along with guest presentations. Farm Bureau finds it important to work on issues that impact farmers; therefore, there will be opportunities at the fair for farmers to provide input on Farm Bureau policies. Farm Bureau’s display aims to reach fair guests with a positive message about agriculture in our community, state and nation. We aim to provide a memorable experience for fair-goers.
