Outreach at the county fair

Richland County Farm Bureau is excited to be a part of your experience at the 2018 Richland County Fair!

Farm Bureau aims to reach fair guests with a positive message about agriculture in our community, state, and nation and to provide a memorable experience for fairgoers.

The popular Agriculture Spinning Wheel will allow guests to learn more about agriculture around them. A large television screen will broadcast movies about today’s food and fiber. Partner organizations, such as Farm Credit Mid-America, Case IH, Ford, John Deere and Nationwide will have displays. There will also be a Scavenger Hunt across the fairgrounds, so look get your questions sheet and look for the signs as you tour the 2018 Richland County Fair!
