(Hamilton, NY – May 2012) The Hamilton Agriculture Department and the Hamilton FFA are hosting the second annual Farm Days, Tuesday, May 1, for students, faculty, staff and the Hamilton community with agricultural displays for enjoyment by participants.
Along with the various farm animals such as pigs, goats, sheep, chickens and more set up for interaction, the event will also feature a mini-tractor pull, the Madison County Dairy Court, Chobani yogurt, a yarn-spinning station, a “milk-a-cow” station, a feed identification station, tractor-drawn wagon rides, ice cream-making and many more hands-on activities.
“It’s an event that allows people to experience the various aspects of agriculture under one roof,” District Five FFA President Kaylin Broadwell, said. “It’s really neat that the agriculture students plan this event to advocate for agriculture to HCS students and the community.”
The event will take place in the bus garage at Hamilton Central School from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
