Ag Days 2018 This Weekend
The 2018 Ag Days will be bittersweet for The Agriculture Team of St Joseph County (Ag Team). One of the co-chairmen for many years, George Myer, passed away this February, and the event will be dedicated to his outstanding commitment.
The Ag Team is busy preparing for the event which will once again 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 6, 7, and 8. 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 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, 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; sign-up begins at 2:00 p.m. and the pull will begin at 3:00.
