For those looking for a great way to start their summer, the Bayfield Ag Society has planned a wonderful family activity –Breakfast on the Farm. On July 2 everyone is invited to the Steenbeek Dairy Farms, east of Varna on Mill Road, to experience a filling breakfast and the opportunity to visit a dairy farm. The breakfast will be available from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. and the tours will be continuous during that time. This is the chance to actually see a nearby modern dairy operation and ask your questions about the operation. The added bonus is having a farm styled breakfast under shelter from any type of weather. The cost will be $7 with all children under 5 free. There will be a limited number of tickets available to ensure all get a great start to their day.
Volunteers are always welcome and if there are people who would like to help with the parking, setting up, taking down, or publicity, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2016 prize book is online at www.bayfieldfair.ca and available in paper copy at several local businesses or contact a Board member for your own copy. This is a great time to get your seeds ready for planting after checking to see what the listings are this year. Last year the handcrafts had the largest increase in exhibits over the previous year. Possibly exhibitors will check out the categories for woodworking or photography to have those sections increase in size. There will always be room to display everyone’s entries.
There has been strong interest in being a concession vendor this year and the spaces are filling quickly. There still is a need for a food vendor for the weekend.
This is the 160th fair in Bayfield and if anyone wishes to be part of the celebrations, do contact the Society by web or at 482-3020.
