[VIDEO] Fair showcases county’s young agriculturists
Monday, Jul. 21
The Fauquier County Fair is something that every local 4-H member looks forward to year-round.
The fair serves as a showcase for the county’s youth to exhibit what they have learned about agriculture and livestock. From the 4-H pet show, to the dog demonstration, to the hundreds of farm animals on display, the fair was a celebration of what makes Fauquier County a strong agricultural community with a network of youth that are interested in continuing the farming legacy.
“We have several clubs that prepare kids for the fair all year round,” said Leenah Nguyen, the new 4-H Agent for Fauquier County.
Nguyen said that the children prepare the entire year in their livestock club to show their animals, in the dog-training club for their demonstration and in the poultry club to show their birds.
