Harvest for ALL





Touch-A-Tractor, A full day of family fun!

Families and volunteers enjoyed attending this year’s Touch-A-Tractor – our largest event about agriculture and food. Visitors of all ages enjoyed seeing small antique tractors, large modern equipment, a 34-row planter, a combine, baby chicks, baby lambs, and a calf and more.
