A million thanks!! We are THRILLED with the phenomenal response to our posts over the past two weeks celebrating farming and over a hundred years of agriculture in our county.

But wait! There’s MORE!! Thanks to grant funding from
Michigan Farm Bureau and additional financial assistance from our board, we are in the process of creating a more permanent, traveling display of our proud farm families’ photos and their narratives that will be exhibited at community venues and events such as fairs, local libraries, and educational presentations.

The are over 150 registered centennial
farms in our county.

Our initial goal was to reach out to and feature 15 centennial and sesquicentennial farm families during Ag Week. We nearly doubled that number! Profound thanks to ALL the families who shared their photos and stories!

What a great beginning!

So please stay tuned, and thank you again for the hundreds of likes and shares and heartfelt comments as we continue to celebrate our rich agricultural heritage.
