Knolltop Farm Wife

Welcome to my blog! I'm a wife, mother of four and a self-employed freelance writer. I live on a dairy farm with my family and I enjoy sharing our life with family, friends and anyone else who wants to visit the farm. There's no telling what the I will write about from day to day, but hopefully you'll be enriched when you stop by! Have a wonderfully blessed day!

County Fairs

The county fair has to be one of the best weeks of the year for any youngster involved in exhibiting livestock. It's a place where relationships are developed and hopes and dreams are realized. But in some places the county fair doesn't include livestock. My friend Trent Loos has been talking about this for a few weeks now concerning a fair in California that is eliminating livestock from it's fair. What is a county fair without the livestock? There's lots to be said for what our urban friends can learn from agricultural producers in a public venue like our fairs and exhibitions, but not if we're not there to teach them.
