The Franklin Fall Farm Fun Fest was held September 26-28, 2019 at the host farm of Wayne and Bradley Beidel of Newburg, PA. CVAEMA once again sponsored the “Grinder Winder”, a learning station on the walking tour which consisted of 15 hand corn shellers provided by Bill Swailes.
Approximately 2,400 fourth graders passed through on Thursday and Friday, each able to hand grind an ear of corn after hearing an informative speech by Dale Happel. Dale interacted with the kids talking about corn and the products made from it.
Saturday it was open to the public and was another busy day. Good weather, help from Vo-Ag students, and help from club members helped to make this 29th annual event a success.
