Scott County Fairgrounds

On Sunday, September 13, 2015, the Scott County Agricultural Society will hold their third

“AUTUMN FARE,” an event to promote locally produced food, natural fiber, local farms, and art. Their mission is to provide a venue where local food producers, artists, and producers of natural fiber can show the community their art and natural fiber and promote their farms and the products they have raised or created.

According to the website, the first year was a success, and the second year they had 700 enthusiastic visitors.

An “Aisle of Farms” in one of the barns will have booths or tables with a few animals to show the community what producers are doing on their farms. Photos of farms and animals will also be on display in the booths.

Vendors will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a Farmer’s Breakfast from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Red Food Stand. During the day, 4-H will have their food stand open to provide “Fare” for Autumn Fare.
