Ag Days at St. Joseph County 4-H Fairgrounds Coming Soonby Joyce Shultz on March 30, 2016
The Agriculture Team of St. Joseph County (Ag Team) is busy preparing for the 2016 Ag Days which will be held in conjunction with St. Joseph County 4-H Fair, Inc. at the Fairgrounds located at 5117 S. Ironwood Dr., South Bend IN on April 8, 9, and 10. Hours for the event are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday; 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and 11:00 a.m.to 4:00 p.m on Sunday.
This year there will be 2 new exhibits for the children and their family to enjoy – rain drops and shrimp! This is a FREE family event and is meant to teach children where farm products originate. It is an interactive event where the children will see sheep, goats, pigs, beef, rabbits and poultry and will pick an apple from the apple tree, gather an egg from the henhouse, fish, milk a cow, get their picture taken (Aren’t cell phones wonderful for this) plus more and generally have a good time. At each station they will put an example of the farm product in their basket and then “sell” it at the market for a cookie and milk. This simulates the way the farm industry works.
There will be a Pedal Pull for ages 5 through 10 on Saturday; signup begins at 2:00 p.m. and the pull will begin at 3:00.
