There will be vendors, animals and fun family farm music, but most of all , we will have an incredible amount of entries with our good weather and hopefully, folks have had time to get out of the heat and make , bake and create entries for the fair.

Remember to write your amusing farm story, with the opportunity to be published in our Amusing farm storybook to be published in time for Christmas.
