A Taste From Indiana Farms

Three days of free food, what could be better!  Over 1,500 folks came through yesterday to get a taste of what agriculture provides and they are walking away with some facts they didn't know.  Such as marshmallows are a pork by product!  Or how much milk the average dairy cow produces.  Here is a photo tour of what you can do.  We are here 11-5 Wednesday and 11-4:30 Thursday. 
District 3 serving cheese curds from Fair Oaks Dairy

District 8 serving pepperoni and marshmallows - promoting pork and by products

District 2 serving lamb

District 10 representing vegetables

District 4 serving soy butter, a great substitute for those that can't eat peanuts

We should have gone through the whole line after we finished serving, but we didn't want to wait the 45-60 minutes to do it ;-) It was a fun time watching people's faces when their cheese "squeaked!" Hee Hee!

so glad to see Lamb was represented. And some additional trivia information for you. Indiana ranks 2nd in tomatoes grown for processing and 6th in Watermelon production.
