Farm Day Scheduled for May 9th
The 12th Annual Farm Day hosted by the Cannon County Farm Bureau and University of Tennessee Extension is scheduled for Friday, May 9th at the Cannon County Fairgrounds. Farm day is a fun filled, exciting opportunity for 4th graders throughout the County. This hands-on event will give them a feel of life on the farm. 4-H'ers will see and learn about exciting things such as: Animals, Animals, Animals!!!, Creek Creatures, Forestry, Planting Plowing and Harvesting, Farm Equipment, Barnyard Olympics, Soils and much more.
Farm Day "Barnyard Olympics" began in 2012 which gave kids a chance to experience some of the things that farmers face each day, such as stacking hay, fencing, and carrying water and feed to livestock. Congratulations to Ms. Christie Wilson 4th grade class for being named the 2013 Farm Day Champion.
Local farmers are welcome to attend the annual "Kick Off" which includes a farmer's breakfast beginning at 8:00 A.M.
