Family Farm Fest

Family Farm Fest - One Day Event

Family Farm Fest is a one day event that raises money and awareness for Heifer International. Children and adults have the opportunity to visit various animal booths to learn about the way each animal can change the life of an impoverished family — and even to visit with some live farm animals! Try your hand at milking a "cow" or churning some butter! There will also be an organic farmer’s market and a bake sale.

All summer long, AnchorKids have been raising donations through B.I.B.L.E. Olympics. While at Family Farm Fest, AnchorKids will present a gift, with the donations collected, to Heifer International and purchase animals for families and communities around the world. Heifer then works with these families to teach them how to make a living with their new livestock!
