The leaves are starting to change colors, and the air is becoming colder which means it’s finally time for the annual Fall Farm Fair at the Trumbull Agriscience & Biotechnology Center. Stop by on Saturday, October 23rd from 10 am to 3 pm to visit the animals, play games, join raffles, enjoy the food trucks, and shop from our local and student vendors!

Each year, the students in agriscience take part in an SAE or a supervised agricultural experience. From volunteering at local businesses, to getting paid jobs, or becoming entrepreneurs and selling their own products, these students can do it all. Products made by the students include homemade jams and jellies, jewelry, wine glasses, maple syrup, crochet crafts, room decor, soaps, and so much more! These products will be sold during the farm fair and are the perfect gifts for family members.

This is also the perfect event for children, who are welcome to arrive in their Halloween costumes. The volunteers have put together many different games and activities such as decorating pumpkins, bowling, planting seeds, ring toss, and more. Children can also choose a prize after completion of each activity. Each game requires 1-2 tickets which can be purchased at the front table by the entrance, otherwise admission is free.

One of the most popular things to do at the farm fair is to visit the animals which are very friendly. Currently, there are two horses, one cow, one alpaca, fifteen sheep, and two recently added miniature donkeys. They will be outside on the fields and you may even be able to see some of the large animal science students training or feeding them.

 “Besides offering families the opportunity to visit our farm and interact with our large animals, it provides a venue for our Agriscience students to assist our parent organization, the Friends of the Farm, in this fundraising event”, said Dr. Linda Paslov, Agriscience Director. Dr.  Paslov is very excited to help host the Farm Fair.

The Friends of the Farm is an organization made of dedicated parents that helps enrich the Trumbull Agriscience program through social events, fundraising, and community awareness.

The weather is supposed to be great on Saturday, so feel free to stop by. The Farm Fair is a great place to enjoy on a weekend with your family. From sweet treats, to games, animals, and pumpkins, this event will set the perfect mood for a cozy autumn day. But don’t fret if you can’t make it, the Spring Farm Fair will be here before you know it.
