2009 Hancock County Farm Festival

The Farm Festival is an annual event that involves the counties surrounding the Indianapolis Metropolitan area that allows the public a chance to learn about Indiana agriculture and the important role that it plays in our lives. This year's "Festival" will focus on the farms of Hancock County.

The Farm Festival is a free driving tour of four different farming operations in Hancock County featuring a grain elevator/feed mill, a large modern corn, soybean and cattle farm, a dairy farm, and a race horse stable.

Each of the four locations will offer family focused activities along with information about how farms operate. Farm owners and others will be available to answer questions and contribute background information about these farms and farming in general. Each site will also offer an opportunity to sample local farm cuisine for a nominal fee.
