The goal of this event is to help educate the community about the importance of agriculture and conservation in their daily lives.  It is a hands-on opportunity for people to become better connected with local farmers and ranchers who help put the food on their tables, conserve the land for future generations and wildlife, and provide the base for many products we use daily. 

Local farmers and ranchers along with others involved in the agriculture industry will share their passion and knowledge of where our food comes from and how it is grown.
