There’s more than cuddly farm animals at our Life on the Farm Exhibit. We also host panels, presentations, and demonstrations on important agricultural topics. Learn more about goat and cow milking, sheep shearing, chicken keeping, home-scale fermentation, cidermaking, jam making, and more at the Farm Bureau Arena.
Climate change and food-related health are hot topics, and farmers practicing sustainable & regenerative agriculture are at the forefront of transitioning into a more positive future. The Farm Bureau Arena showcases some of our innovative local farmers sharing stories and tips on what they do best.
Our presenters are about more than producing healthy, locally-grown food – they go to great lengths to create a positive ecological impact. Visit us to get pro tips on eco-friendly and humane practices while getting up close and personal with our furry & feathered farm friends.
