2013 Farm Fest
The Oneida County farmers invite you to bring your family to the farm and learn about agriculture at Farm Fest 2013 on Friday, June 7th from 4:30 to 9 p.m. at the Brabant Farms in Verona. The event offers fun, educational activities for all ages.
Farm Fest is an event that annually allows the public to take a first-hand look inside a working Oneida County dairy farm. The event offers fun, educational activities for all ages, including over 20 agriculture-related displays, exhibits and demonstrations, pony and hayrides, tours of the farm, a hay maze, children’s games and so much more. Food will be available including a Chicken BBQ, hamburgers and hot dogs.
“Farm Fest is a great way for residents of our community to find out more about agriculture; a profession that gives back to each of us every day!” said Ron Bunce, executive director of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oneida County, a co-sponsor of the event.
Farm Fest, which also serves as an interactive classroom for over 700 Oneida County elementary school students earlier in the day, was awarded the 2010 NY Agricultural Society’s “Agricultural Education Award.” The award was presented to Farm Fest based on the event’s ability to share valuable information on local agriculture to diverse segments of our community.
The event is co-sponsored by Oneida County farmers, Oneida County Farm Bureau, Oneida County Dairy Promotion and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oneida County.
