Farm Friday

Date: Friday, September 01, 2017 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Duration: 1 Hour
Location: Knox County

Kids and parents can learn how a cow is milked, sit on tractors and learn about how they are used in the fields around Knox County, and talk with farmers and ask answer questions on what it takes to bring our food from fields to dinner plates. Local orchards will have apples on hand for the picking, maple syrup producers will show us the process on how syrup is made and have maple cotton candy, and the Bee Keepers Association will show us how bees pollinate our plants to make food. Guest can also visit vendors from the farmers market, learn about soil erosion, ethanol vehicles and corn products, why the farm bill is important to us all, by-products from the Cattleman’s and Sheep Improvement Association, food safety, cooking demos, Celebrity Pie Throwing Contest, pedal tractor races, and much more.

Farm Friday will be held during First Friday. Agriculture will be in the 100 block of Main Street.
