If you are looking for something to do on Saturday, March 20th, I hope you will consider attending the 86th Annual Jefferson County Soils & Crops Conference held at Hillsboro High School. There will be all sorts of exhibits, and the event draws several hundred people. It is a great family affair with lots of 4-H kids on-hand to facilitate a silent auction.
Of course, this is also the time when the Soil and Water Conservation District holds its annual meeting, but there's much more that goes on. With your $7 registration fee, you get to see the presentation of the Jeferson County Farm Family of the Year, view pictures from this year's three Century Farms, and have a fabulous dinner that includes dessert and great conversation. You simply can't go wrong!
They do like to have a headcount for dinner, so you need to call the Jefferson County Extension office at (636)797-5391 if you'd like to attend. For more information, see the invitation in the Jefferson County AGNews letter:
The De Soto Farmers' Market will have a booth in the exhibit hall, so make sure you come find us. We'll have Vendor Applications and 2010 Rules and Regulations for potential vendors, and we'll also have a giveaway. You'll want to put your name in the bucket for that one!
Registration is due by March 18th, and the doors open at 5 PM with the program beginning at 6 PM. We hope to see you there.
