“Our farm has been coming to this event year after year, and it is always looked forward to. It is an incredible way to not only learn new things, but get together with the surrounding farming community, which is absolutely of utmost importance and necessity. Bringing this community together on a yearly basis to share information is wonderful, and I hope it continues long into the future.”
