Winnebago-Boone Farm Bureau is kicking off National Agriculture Week a little early with cute crafts and amazing family activities at the Discovery Center Museum on Saturday, March 10th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Meet local farmers; check out real farm equipment and live animals; and learn where your food comes. You’ll be amazed at the number of things we grow right here in Illinois! Venture through nine stations and take part in the different hands-on activities! Have questions; stop by the “Ask a Farmer” booth. Ag All Around Us is included with Discovery Center Museum admission.
You could be a winner of a quarter of beef or half a hog, but only if you have your raffle tickets!
The Winnebago-Boone Farm Bureau Young Leaders are selling raffle tickets to raise funds to help out the Rock River Valley Food Pantry. The Young Leaders will raffle off two quarter sides of beef and two half hogs at the Winnebago-Boone Farm Bureau’s 98th Annual Meeting on March 20, 2018. Tickets cost $5 each or three for $10. (You need not be present to win.)
Tickets are available now at the Winnebago-Boone Farm Bureau office located at 1925 S Meridian Road, Rockford, IL.
