Local 4-Hers recently picked up their Poultry Show and Sale projects . They will raise their birds that will be shown and then sold in a silent auction at the Fauquier County Agricultural Exposition on Friday, July 12.
The first Fauquier Agriculture Exposition will take place July 11-13 at the county fairgrounds east of Warrenton.
The event will feature livestock shows, a poultry show and sale, an exhibit hall with art and home-grown produce and agricultural technology demonstrations. The Virginia Cooperative Extension Fauquier County Unit has organized the expo.
“This will be an opportunity to bring the community together to learn more about our agricultural accomplishments,” said Sarah Sisk Bullard, a local extension agent. “Many volunteers have come together to help in the planning and hosting of the expo.”
The Fauquier Ag Expo will be free and open to the public. It will help fill the void after cancellation of this year’s Fauquier County Fair.
The tentative schedule:
• Thursday, July 11 — Dairy Beef Show
• Friday, July 12 — Rabbit and Poultry Shows, Round Robin, Meat and Dairy Goat Shows and Sheep Show
• Saturday, July 13 — Beef Show, Dog Demonstration and Horse Demonstration
