St. Joseph County Ag Days Coming April 3-5, 2020
The Ag Team of St. Joseph County is busy preparing for the 2020 Ag Days 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 3, 4, and 5.
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; signup begins at 2:00 p.m. and the pull will begin at 3:00.
If you have a farm product that you would like to feature, and tell our youth more about it, we would love to talk to you about it!
