Recently the Jackson-Vinton Farm Bureau hosted Farm Fest in Manpower Park in Jackson. This event was free to the public and featured homemade ice cream, popsicles, popcorn, and balloons all compliments of Farm Bureau. Visitors could also purchase produce, pulled pork dinners, goat milk soap, farm fresh pork products, and more. Large farm equipment, animals and so much more also were on hand! Farm Bureau’s main goal in hosting this event is to raise the public’s awareness of agriculture and the importance of it.
There was also a free mower and tractor safety session held. At the end of the day, this event was a huge success, and the board of trustees plan to have a bigger and better event next year!
