Oregon Women for Agriculture helps sponsor Ag Fest at the Salem Fairgrounds. It’s fun for the entire family. Visit our booth. We will be planting radish seeds. Take it home, nurture it and watch it grow!

Agriculture affects us on a daily basis, but many people don’t know much about it but where to buy the products they need. Those who attend Ag Fest will learn where our food and fiber comes from, how livestock is raised, the importance of forests for our ecology and survival, plus much more. Touch, taste and feel agriculture! Plant a seedling, ride a pony, watch chicks hatch, pet a rabbit, dig for potatoes… and much, much more!

* Ag Country: hands on experience
* Nosey’s Neighborhood: meet Nosey the cow and many other farm animals (goats, sheep, chickens and pigs)

* Craft and Garden Show: Handmade goods, garden and landscape plants and information.
