Fairest of the Fiftieth

The Elroy Fair kicked off fair season in Wisconsin. And this week the Sauk County Fair is happening. Later this month, the Monroe County Fair will be taking place. As we move into August, the Wisconsin State Fair takes place, the Vernon County Fair and the Juneau County Fair. Finally, fair season concludes in September with the Richland County Fair

 

This weekend at the Sauk County Fair:

There will be a “Farmer Thank You” ice cream social on Sunday, July 14 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm located outside Progress Hall by the United Coop Tent. This event is one of several efforts at the Fair to recognize our local farmers and show appreciation for their hard work to provide food for the public.

The Farmer Angel Network is a collaboration of Sauk Co. Public Health, Sauk Co. UWEX, Project Recovery, local churches and concerned farmers whose goal is to support area farmers through a time of depressed farm income, challenging cropping season and the highest rate of farm bankruptcies and exits since 1930’s. Mental health awareness and support resources are the key focus of this effort.
