Indigenous foods, eco-friendly farming, goat milking, sheep shearing and lots of your favorite farm critters: these are a few treats in store for you at the Life on the Farm Arena, sponsored by the Farm Bureau.

Climate change and food-related health are hot topics, and farmers practicing sustainable & regenerative agriculture are at the forefront of transitioning into a more positive future. As the Gravenstein Apple Fair celebrates this year’s “Farmers Forever” theme, Life on the Farm showcases some of our innovative local farmers sharing stories and tips on what they do best.

Our presenters are about more than producing healthy, locally-grown food – they go to great lengths to create a positive ecological impact. Visit us to get pro tips on eco-friendly and humane practices while getting up close and personal with our furry & feathered farm friends.
