Fayette County Farm Bureau is partnering with the Fayette County Farmers’ Market to provide family friendly events where participants can learn more about agriculture and experience buying local. The event starts July 6 with a farm tour for children enrolled in the Carnegie Library’s Summer Reading Program. They will be visiting a sheep farm to observe the behavior of herding dogs and guardian dogs in sheep herd management. The Carnegie Library received 10 copies each of three different children’s books on aspects of farming and food production, from Ohio Farm Bureau and the Market.
The children’s program continues July 27 where participants will experience Ohio’s seasonal produce bounty and taste locally grown watermelon and blackberries. T-shirts bearing the Market’s logo and an agricultural message will be available for purchase at a special rate to Farm Bureau members and also for those who visit one of two Fayette County Nationwide agents to obtain insurance quotes.
All Farm Bureau members receive “buy one, get one” pricing on all farmers market products July 20 and July 27. No registration required.
Cost: Free; T-shirt costs: Farm Bureau member: $7; nonmember: $15 For information, contact the Fayette County Farmers’ Market at 740-948-2231
