The 16th Annual Family Farm Field Days are sponsored by the Family Farm Field Day Committee. We invite you to join us for demonstrations, presentations, discussions, sessions, and sponsor’s displays.
Our mission is to continue to provide an educational format for grass-based agriculture that supports low energy and a non-industrial way of farming, encourages family lifestyles that promote economical and healthy rural living skills, and seeks to build morale and enthusiasm in the farming community.
There is no reservation or entrance fee required for the day’s activities. Food stands will be provided by the parochial school’s special education parents. There will be containers for a freewill offering if you would like to contribute toward the furtherance of the Family Farm Field Days. Sessions will be running simultaneously. Planned children’s activities will be offered throughout the day.
