The Mercer County 4-H fair includes animal shows and exhibits, homemade ice cream, hay rides, pony rides, music, magic shows, and farm tours. Check out displays by the Rutgers Master Gardeners of Mercer County, Mercer County Wildlife Center Friends, Mid-State Beekeepers Association, and many more! Free admission and parking for all; please bring a non-perishable food donation for Rutgers Against Hunger.

On Saturday, Howell Farm’s 2021 wheat sheaves will be fully dried and ready to be “threshed” to separate the grain and straw. Demonstrations will take place in the barnyard between 11:00 and 3:00 – with visitors helping to “winnow” the threshed grain to clean it, separating the wheat from the chaff and preparing it for grinding.

For more information, contact Altaira Bejgrowicz at 609-989-6830 or bejgrowicz@njaes.rutgers.edu.
