I have been saying we have something fun coming up. Something we haven’t tried before. Well. here is the scoop.

The chance to take a farm tour and enjoy our local foods is coming to you this fall. The Carroll County Farm Bureau Young Leaders are sponsoring their first Farm to Fork, Carroll County’s Tasteful Agricultural Experience. The event will take place on Sunday, Aug. 27, beginning at 4 p.m. at Livengood Barn in Chadwick. A limited number of tickets will be sold for this local dining event. Cost is $30 a person or $50 a couple.

The evening will kick off with a local beef farm tour in which guests will be transported to the farm. Following the tour, the Young Leaders have a local chef, Scott Heeren with Custom Catering and BBQ, lined up to prepare local grown and raised ingredients into mouthwatering dishes. Each course of the meal will also be paired with local brews or wines.

During dinner, we will be having local producers speak on their farm. Currently participating in the program are Hunter Haven Farms, Lamoreux Farms, Livengood Family Beef, Lower Farms and Neumiller Farms, along with Generations Brewery.

Don’t hesitate and miss out of this fun-filled evening, enjoying a delicious meal. Tickets are available through the Carroll County Farm Bureau at 815-244-3001. We are very excited to offer up this event. What is better than a fun filled evening of food and friends in a great country setting?

Raise your hand if you are over the rain! Yep, I see all your hands up. I was thoroughly enjoying the spring we were having back in March. Now, if Mother Nature would hold some of this rain for this summer! I know it wrecked havoc on the last few weeks of our baseball schedule.

You have a day or two left to get that gift for mom! Stop by our office to grab mom a candle. We have a wide variety of scents and sizes in stock. We also now take debit or credit cards as well.

We have received a few checks so far for the Wildfire Relief. Individuals and groups wishing to donate are invited to make out their check to either “Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation” (with “Fire Relief” in the memo line) or to the Kansas Livestock Foundation (with “Wildfire Relief Fund” in the memo line). Checks may be mailed or dropped off through May 31 at our office. Thank you’s go out to those who have already given.
